Abstract:
This dataset includes a series of maps which identify flood risk in areas, villages, and river systems. Variables: a real extent of flood plains, ice presence, water levels, flow. The initial data collection is still ongoing. Areas covered include New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland.This data is currently being used to accumulate information to reduce flood damage. Information is used to direct development away from flood-prone areas. Maps are used to foster public awareness of flood prone areas and for zoning and regulation purposes. Also, data are used to assist in flood forecasts for the St. John River. Spatial Data Organization Information - Indirect Spatial Reference: Direct Spatial Reference: Flood zone lines are overlayed on maps, map projections are in UTM, and coordinate system is Latitude/Longitude. Raster Object Type: Row Count: Column Count: Vertical Count: Spatial Reference Information - Horizontal Coordinate System Definition - Planar - Map Projection Name: Transverse Mercator Planar Coordinate Encoding Method: Coordinate Representation: Abscissa Resolution: Ordinate Resolution: Distance and Bearing Representation: Distance Resolution: Bearing Resolution: Bearing Units: Bearing Reference Direction: Bearing Reference Meridian: Planar Distance Units: Geodetic Model: Horizontal Datum Name: Ellipsoid Name: Semi-major Axis: Denominator of Flattening Ratio:
