Description: The boundary line data was compiled from the Atlas of Canada 1,000,000 National Frameworks Data, Administrative Boundaries data. Attribute and geometry edits were made to the boundary line data to coordinate with the Canadian Geopolitical Boundaries data from the Canada Centre for Cadastral Management of Natural Resources Canada. The boundary lines were processed with the boundary points using an ETL (extract, transform and load) routine to output the boundary polygons, landmass polygons and ocean polygon.The Atlas of Canada National Scale Data 1:1,000,000 Series consists of boundary, coast, island, place name, railway, river, road, road ferry and waterbody data sets that were compiled to be used for atlas large scale (1:1,000,000 to 1:4,000,000) mapping. These data sets have been integrated so that their relative positions are cartographically correct. Any data outside of Canada included in the data sets is strictly to complete the context of the data.
