Summary
Abstract: Atlas of Canada National Scale Frameworks data are standardized national
coverages of commonly used geospatial data sets at the 1:1 000 000 scale. A
variety of framework layers (e.g. hydrology, roads, railways, populated places)
have been integrated so that their relative positions are correct. Hydrology
(which includes coastline) is the base layer to which all others are ... View entire text

displays or hardcopy plots, which were visually verified to digital and hard
copy reference data. Attribute data that could not be verified in such a manner
were interactively queried within the authoring software to check for anomalies
such as duplication of data in fields requiring unique values and incorrect
feature coding.Data completeness reflects the content of the original Vector
