What’s Included in the Canadian Data?
Manitoba River Lots and the Prime Meridian
A common area of confusion for those dealing with the Manitoba data are that some land locations use W (or W1) and some E (or E1). This is correct, and the reason for it is that the primary meridian (i.e. the centre of Canada) passes through Manitoba. Therefore all land locations east of the prime meridian will be E1 and all locations to the west are W1.
Manitoba also has a relatively high number of river lots. These are found along river banks on major rivers. These have a completely different naming convention, typically beginning with an abbreviation of the RM, followed by RL and then numbers. The Manitoba CSV data include the river lot centroids, however if you need to be able to identify the actual parcels then the shapefile or Google Earth overlays we also sell on the site may be needed.
