We live in a rapidly changing world where information and analytics help us make better, smarter decisions that lead to better outcomes. Without location, however, we lose context. We believe a common basemap—one single, accurate and always current base layer—provides the foundation to inform and power a myriad of systems, applications and decisions.

A basemap of Canada


The Community Map of Canada is a basemap of Canada built from authoritative data, collected closest to source and updated daily. Seamlessly created to one common specification and compliant with international standards, it provides unrestricted access to community maps and imagery across the country.
