PR – GeoBase is a federal, provincial and territorial government initiative that provides users with access to quality geospatial information at no cost and with unrestricted use. GeoBase and the Canadian Land Cover Community of Practice have embarked on the National Land Cover Data project, whose main objective is to integrate Land Cover mapping from provincial and federal organizations and to produce a harmonized data base that is consistent with international standards, in order to meet the broadest range of user needs.
The National Land Cover Project plans to integrate existing Land Cover information compiled by Natural Resources Canada’s Canadian Forest Service and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada into a single product for Canadians. We would like to have your comments on the usefulness of the currently planned product. And we want to understand your long term Land Cover information needs so that we can plan for future products. Please answer the questions in the attached questionnaire. We sincerely wish to respond to the needs of Canadian users to the extent possible within the project constraints. The questionnaire will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Please send your reply to the undersigned by 25 February 2008. Your participation is greatly appreciated. It will help us to improve the product.
