Predicted Species Distributions and Vegetation Assemblages for Eco-district 6e10

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"


This product is a digital atlas containing over 180 plant species, vegetation and habitat related maps, for the eco-district 6e10 and Greater Park Ecosystem (GPE) - St. Lawrence Islands National Park. The Digital Atlas contains distribution information of dominant forests plants, species assemblages (vegetation types), and some habitat and structural characteristics occurring in eco-district 6e10 and GPE.

A large volume of geo-referenced vegetation data was collected during summers of 2005 to 2007 and along with other spatial layers (e.g., digital elevation, remote sensing derivatives, etc.) used to develop statistical models that were extrapolated and mapped across the entire study area. The goal of this project was to use statistical modeling and prediction to make this distributional information available across the entire study area. The various maps contained in the product are in raster (grid) format at a 10m resolution. All of the maps are organized in folders that can be easily navigated by following the documents and readme files contained in the individual folders or in the main document folder '6e10_documents'.

The full Predicted Species Atlas and associated grid data are available in three separate files for download. Please download all associated files Part 1, 2, and 3, to conduct research and analysis with the data in your GIS. The read-me document contains information about the original structure of the CD available from the Land Information Ontario (LIO) warehouse.
