    Geoscience Atlas (Opens in a new Window)

    The Geoscience Atlas is an interactive map that allows users to select and view layers that include general map layers (e.g. Forest access roads and Contours), coastal monitoring variables (e.g. Coastal Erosion Index and Coastal Sensitivity Index), areas of geochemistry, and geology. Users can toggle and zoom into specific regions in Newfoundland and Labrador. Coastal erosion indices are viewable on map at point resolution.

    HectaresBC (Opens in a new Window)

    The HectaresBC browser allows visualization and analysis of geospatial gridded data. The system allows users to easily interact with and/or combine multiple datasets and quantify values for different geographical areas. The gridded datasets currently available include historical and future climate variables across BC. HectaresBC is a highly interactive tool with data outputs in various different formats. Data layers include climate normals and projected climate of the 2020s, 2050s and 2080s under Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP) 4.5 and 8.5.

    Manitoba Flood Forecasting (Opens in a new Window)

    Manitoba Flood Forecasting presents Flood Forecasts and Reports, River Levels/Flow Plots, Forecast Information Maps, Lakes Information, and maps. Forecast Information is available in an interactive map that displays flood forecasts at various stations across Manitoba. Flood sheets, which are issued during the spring runoff period or summer rain period, are updated daily and show the flow at a particular station, and its deviations from the forecasted peak. Data are available in mapped, tabular, and various other formats.

    Monthly Temperature and Precipitation Delta Maps (Opens in a new Window)

    Monthly Temperature and Precipitation Delta Maps were produced from an ensemble of 12 global climate models supplied by the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium. These delta (change) maps show the difference between current climate conditions and projected, future climate conditions. Two 30-year future periods (2021-2050 and 2051-2080) were used with the current period set to 1976-2005. Future data are available as gridded data.
