Research Area

Choose a Study Site from the Canadian Geographical Names Data Base. Include Toponymic Feature ID if there is more than one name location
•Coordinates MUST be between -90 and 90 for latitudes and between -180 and 180 for longitudes.
•Latitude is zero on the equator and positive in the northern hemisphere.
•Longitude is zero on the Greenwich meridian and negative to the west across America.
•For studies that cover the entire Arctic region, we suggest using 50 to 90 as latitudinal and 180 to -180 as longitudinal limits.

If more than one dataset is included in this project, each dataset may have individual privacy concerns. Choose whether to make it publicly available or only shareable with those within your organization (private).

Stipulate how often the dataset is updated e.g. daily, weekly, monthly, annually, as required etc.

The data should be released in at least one open format e.g. CSV, XML, HTML, JSON, KML, GML, TXT, API. You can also release the native version of the data.
