Abstract:
The Atlas Map Collection provides coverage of the entire Canadian landmass. This collection contains base maps, maps of the National Atlas of Canada, 5th edition and other thematic maps prepared by the Atlas of Canada. These maps depict Canada's social, economic, environmental and cultural fabric. A World map is also included in this series. The Atlas of Canada no longer sells maps directly to the public. We recommend the purchase of Atlas of Canada maps from any of over 900 map dealers across Canada, the United States and overseas. The Atlas of Canada no longer sells maps directly to the public. We recommend the purchase of Atlas of Canada maps from any of over 900 map dealers across Canada, the United States and overseas ( http://atlas.gc.ca/site/english/dataservices/wall_maps/purchase_info.html ). Some Atlas of Canada printed maps are now available as scanned images in the Atlas of Canada's online Map Archives (http://atlas.gc.ca/site/english/maps/archives).The Atlas of Canada is responsible for the development and maintenance of an authoritative synthesis of information on the geography of Canada. The Atlas of Canada provides a series of maps showing integrated geographical information about Canada for the general public, the educational sector, and policy-makers.
