Abstract:
The inventory for recreational land use capability has 7 Classes, from Class 1 with high capability to Class 7 with very low capability. The classification also examines the quantity of recreational use that a land unit can attract and withstand without permanent damage to the natural landscape. Intensive and dispersed activities are recognized in the classification. Intensive activities are those in which relatively large numbers of people may be accommodated per unit area, such as a beach. Dispersed activities are those which normally require a relatively larger area per person such as backcountry camping. The inventory is based on interpretation of aerial photographs, field checks, and available records. Capability maps are displayed with a 1:250,000 scale. The following Canadian cities and their UTM zone designation are contained in this data set: St. John's, Newfoundland UTM Zone 22 Halifax, Nova Scotia UTM Zone 20 St. John, New Brunswick UTM Zone 19 ** Chicoutimi, Quebec UTM Zone 19 Quebec, Quebec UTM Zone 19 Montreal, Quebec UTM Zone 18 Ottawa-Hull UTM Zone 18 Oshawa, Ontario UTM Zone 17 Toronto, Ontario UTM Zone 17 St.Catherines-Niagara, Ontario UTM Zone 17 Hamilton, Ontario UTM Zone 17 Kitchener, Ontario UTM Zone 17 London, Ontario UTM Zone 17 Windsor, Ontario UTM Zone 17 Sudbury, Ontario UTM Zone 17 Thunder Bay, Ontario UTM Zone 16 Winnipeg, Manitoba UTM Zone 14 Regina, Saskatchewan UTM Zone 13 Saskatoon, Saskatchewan UTM Zone 13 Edmonton, Alberta UTM Zone 12 ** Calgary, Alberta UTM Zone 11 ** Vancouver, British Columbia UTM Zone 10 Victoria, British Columbia UTM Zone 10 ** these centres actually span more than one UTM zoneTo provide an estimate of the quantity, quality, and location of outdoor recreational lands in the settled portions of Canada as basic information for planning recreation use.
