Although the Map & Data Library is physically closed, we are still available remotely and happy to help. We can conduct consultations using online teleconferencing software. Please feel free to contact us at mdl@library.utoronto.ca or use our help form. We have a number of tutorials available, are still supplying software licenses, and have compiled a list of resources for working with COVID-19 data.

Please note that our computer lab is also accessible for use through remote access. See this link for more information.

ESRI Data Streetmap North America

StreetMap North America is a dataset in Smart Data Compression (SDC) format that provides streets display, routing, and geocoding for the United States and Canada. It contains 2005 TeleAtlas streets that were enhanced by ESRI and TeleAtlas, and prepared for routing within the StreetMap Find Route dialog. StreetMap North America data is provided in the ESRI Data & Maps Media Kit on the ESRI Data & Maps and StreetMap North America DVD.More recent streets data for the United States, Canada, and Europe are available with the StreetMap Premium products. For more information, visit www.esri.com and select Data under the Products tab. http://maps.library.utoronto.ca/datart/data/ESRI/Streetmap_na/help.htm

Bathymetry of Lake Erie and Lake Saint Clair

New bathymetry of Lake Erie and Lake Saint Clair has been compiled as a component of a NOAA project to rescue Great Lakes lake floor geological and geophysical data and make it more accessible. This project is a cooperative effort between scientists at the NOAA National Geophysical Data Center's Marine Geology and Geophysics Division (NGDC/MGG), the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) and the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS).
