What is this product?

We have compiled CSV tables that contain the land location descriptions and lat/lon map coordinates for each point, ready for deployment in your application

 

What will I receive?

You'll receive CSV files formatted exactly the same as the sample files (downloadable from links below) for the following Provinces:

  • Alberta

Immediately after you complete the checkout process, your files will be available for download from either the checkout page or from the My Account area.

Please download and confirm this is what you require prior to purchasing as we can't offer refunds on downloadable products.

 

Who Is This Product For?

 Anyone that is developing an application where you need to geo-code legal land locations (e.g. sections or quarter sections) into map coordinates. 

 

What's Included in the Data?

We went to great lengths to compile data that fits the needs of a wide variety of applications. The resulting databases are the results of hundreds of hours of GIS processing to generate them!

Data you'll receive: 

  • Centroid Coordinates for every Section
  • Centroid Coordinates for every Quarter Section
  • Centroid Coordinates for every half section (south half, east half, etc)
  • Various data columns to fit with your query formats
  • Each land location also tagged with RM or County (this isn’t in the sample data but is in the purchased products)

 

Understanding the Naming Conventions Used

We have used the following prefixes to identify different locations within a section of land:

  • No Prefix in CSV data = Section Centre (as shown by SEC in image below)
  • NW = Centre of NW Quarter
  • SW = Centre of SW Quarter
  • NE = Centre of NE Quarter
  • NW = Centre of NW Quarter
  • NH = Centre of Northern Half Section
  • EH = Centre of Eastern Half Section
  • SH = Centre of Southern Half Section
  • WH = Centre of Western Half Section

What It Doesn't Do

 Please download and verify that the sample data are suitable for your needs as the paid data use the same format (the only difference being that the paid data also have an extra column we added that tells you what RM or Country the location is within).

 

What Can I Do With The Data?

Here's the EULA.

Basically, you can use it in any applications where the databases won't be available to the end user in their original form. And you can't re-sell the data.
