Abstract:
The National Topographic System (NTS) series provides general-purpose topographic coverage of Canada at the 1/50 000 and 1/250 000 scales. NTS maps depict terrain features (landforms and land cover), drainage (lakes, rivers and streams), official boundaries, the transportation infrastructure (rail and road networks) and many other man-made features (buildings, power lines, pipelines, dams, cut lines, etc.). Note, depth of water bodies is not shown. Topographic maps are ideal for many recreational activities such as canoeing, fishing, hiking, orienteering and snowmobiling. As well, they are used by government agencies and private industry for natural disaster response, natural resource management, facilities management, real estate planning and environmental assessment.
