Ontario Geospatial Data


Scholars Geoportal
The portal offers search, preview, query, download and sharing functionality for datasets licensed by Ontario university libraries, covering such topics as land use, transportation networks, census boundaries, geology, soils, points of interest, air photos, and more.

Scholars GeoPortal is the result of a 3-year project supported by the Government of Ontario through its OntarioBuys initiative. A collaborative effort including the work of OCUL members and faculty from across the province, the Scholars Portal team, and partners from the Ontario government, this platform is powered by Esri's ArcGIS suite of software. Scholars GeoPortal was launched on March 1, 2012.
