Description : The Canadian Atlas Map Bundle consists of the National Atlas Information Service (NAIS) 1:2 million, 1:7.5 million, and 1:30 million scale digital maps created by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) for the National Atlas of Canada publication. Also included are DMTI’s Populated Placenames and Landmarks files that are based on the Canadian Geographic Names Database, also from NRCan. The NAIS 1:2 million-scale dataset provides detailed provincial or regional maps. The 1:7.5 and 1:30 million scale digital datasets provide excellent map data at a national level. The populated Placenames file provides a rich and extensive database of cities, towns, villages and hamlets across Canada. The Landmarks file includes the names and locations of named geographic features, such as lakes, rivers, mountains, parks and islands.
