ANSIs (Areas of Natural and Scientific Interest) are polygon features that represent lands and waters containing important
natural landscapes or features that are important for natural heritage, protection, appreciation, scientific study or education.



An area designated under the Aggregate Resources Act where aggregate extraction on private land cannot proceed without a
license.


Area for which an Aggregate inspector is responsible in matters pertaining to aggregate authorities and their enforcement.



Identifies the name of the authorized aggregate site client. One client may have permits and or licences to extract resources
from several authorized aggregate sites. Only the personal, corporate, or government agency client name will be stored in this
table. Addresses, contact numbers etc. will NOT be stored. Note: Because of the personal names that may be contained in the
client name field, this table is deemed to be secured, and will only be accessed by authorized individuals.


An Agreement Forest Area is a polygon feature that identifies an area of forested private land governed by a Forest

Hangar Heliport Runway Seaplane Base
The water supply for an Aquaculture Operation (Fish Hatchery Operation-Partnership, Fish Culture Station-MNR and
Aquaculture Operation-Private) can be vulnerable to activities such as construction, mining or forestry. These activities can
result in a decreased or contaminated water supply for the Operation. The Area of Impact is divided into two types: the Area of
Sensitivity and the Area of Concern. The Area of Sensitivity buffer the water source of the Operation while the Area of Concern
are based on the aquifer supplying the Operation.


An Aquatic Feeding Area is a polygon feature that identifies a species-specific area that contains aquatic vegetation on which
the species feeds.
Assessment File Research Image Database contains information on mineral exploration work submitted for assessment by
industry to the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry (MNDMF).

The bait resource in much of the province is allocated to harvesters through the exclusive use block system (one harvester per
bait harvest area) with block sizes generally much larger in the north than in the sourth. There are exceptions to the block
system (e.g. Lake Erie), where the resource is allocated to multiple users fishing the same area.


A Bear Management Area is a polygon feature that identifies an area where bear hunting is regulated. Typically such an area
is characterised by potential bear habitat sites, and tourist outfitters or guides licensed to hunt bear.

Linear features constructed by beavers. A beaver dam is a layered construction, consisting of sticks, mud and stones.
The Bedrock Geology Data Set is a Geological map of the Province and shows the distribution of bedrock units underlying
Ontario. It illustrates geological rock types, major faults, granulite areas and dike swarms. The geology of the Province
consists of Precambrian rocks of the Canadian Shield and Phanerozoic sedimentary rocks in basins that overlie the Canadian
Shield. Based on differences in age , metamorphism and tectonic setting, the Precambrian rocks are subdivided into the
Superior, Southern and Grenville provinces. The Phanerozoic rocks occur in four basins. The dataset is an overview of this
geology on a Provincial Compilation scale of 1:1 000 000. Two major classes of faults and shear zones are also viewable on
the map: faults traceable in surface exposure and subsurface faults.
A geological classification of the province which shows the distribution of bedrock units underlying Ontario. It illustrates
geological rock types. The geology of the Province consists of Precambrian rocks of the Canadian Shield and Phanerozoic
sedimentary rocks that overlie the Canadian Shield. Based on differences in age , metamorphism and Tectonic setting, the
Precambrian rocks are subdivided into the Superior, Southern and Grenville provinces. The Phanerozoic rocks occur in four
areas. The dataset is an overview of this geology on a Provincial Compilation scale of 1: 250 000.
A borehole is the generalized term for any narrow shaft drilled in the ground, either vertically or horizontally. A borehole may be
constructed for many different purposes including the extraction of water or fluid (such as oil) or gases (such as natural gas or
methane), as part of a geotechnical investigation or environmental site assessment, for mineral exploration, or as a pilot hole
for installing piers or underground utilities. This database contains a continuous log of strata for each borehole as well as for
geocolumns. A geocolumn is a collection of information from an examination of exposed substrate, such as in a quarry wall or
along a roadway passage.

field operations or commercial enterprises.
An area set aside for the recognition, conservation, and management of a river or section of river with outstanding natural
heritage, cultural, and recreational values. Example: the French River. These rivers are recognized in the Canadian Heritage
River System(CHRS), a cooperative program which includes the Government of Canada, ten provinces, and three territories.
A Concession is a polygon feature that identifies a major subdivision of a geographic township. A Concession is composed of
contiguous lots.
Conservation Areas are lands which are considered to be regionally significant, such as valleys, or environmentally sensitive
areas, and are best managed by a public agency to retain their natural characteristics. These areas are designated within a
Conservation Authority's jurisdiction and are managed by the Authority.For more information, see Conservation Terms and
their Definitions, Otonabee Region Conservation Authority.


Land under the jurisdiction of a Conservation Authority.


An area of public lands regulated under the Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves Act, 2006 which protects ecosystems
that are representative of all of Ontario’s natural regions, protects provincially significant elements of Ontario’s natural and
cultural heritage, and maintains biodiversity and provides opportunities for compatible, ecologically sustainable recreation. The
objectives in establishing and managing conservation reserves are: to permanently protect representative ecosystems,
biodiversity and provincially significant elements of Ontario’s natural and cultural heritage and to manage these areas to
ensure that ecological integrity is maintained; to provide opportunities for ecologically sustainable land uses, including
traditional outdoor heritage activities and associated economic benefits; and to facilitate scientific research and to provide
points of reference to support monitoring of ecological change on the broader landscape.


Constructed Drains are watercourses in the form of ditches, natural watercourses that have been modified to improve
drainage, or buried tile systems.

seasonal or year-round.


A Digital Map of Ontario theme layer depicting counties within Ontario.


Land set aside to regulate the hunting and trapping of wildlife in specific areas in order to restore local populations.

MNR achieves its organizational goals on privately owned land through a variety of tools or approaches, collectively known as
'land securement'. The focus is on ecological sustainability, including ecosystem health, the protection of natural and cultural
assets, recreation, and the protection of people and property. For the purposes of this data class, securement = acquisition
including all activities involving a title rights such as fee simple purchase, conservation easements, land donations, bequeaths
and land exchanges. Contents of this data class has been modified from it's original form for use by OGDE members.
Dispositions refer to tenure on Crown land, usually for a set term and a specific purpose. This excludes permanent disposition
in the form of a patent. The definition of land tenure dispositions for the purpose of this data class includes: - Lease - Licence
of Occupation - Land Use Permit - Beach Management Agreement - Easement Contents of this data class has been modified
from it's original form for use by OGDE members.
Lands that are under the mandate or management of the Ministry of Natural Resources. Generally this means the land has
never been patented (unpatented crown) and therefore is still under management of the crown. Public land is generally
synonymous with crown land. Generally, it is land that has never been granted or sold by the Crown to people or organizations
for their private use. The rules governing the administration of Crown land are laid out in a provinical law known as the Public
Lands Act. May include lands that have been temporarily been disposed of, e.g. Leases and Land Use Permits. For more
details on disposition information, see data class 'Crown Land - MNR Dispositions'. Contents of this data class has been
modified from it's original form for use by OGDE members.
Crown land leased to the public.


A cultural line feature appropriate at the 1: 600 000 provincial series scale includes; pipelines.

A "designated gas storage area" is a land area designated by an Order issued by the Ontario Energy Board to be used for
subsurface storage of natural gas in geological formations.
Dikes are tabular bodies of igneous rock which have intruded pre-existing geological units near the Earth's surface. Dikes are
therefore long linear bodies of igneous rock that can extend laterally for hundreds of kilometers with a width of perhaps a few
hundred meters. Dikes normally occur, not as single dikes, but rather as several parallel dikes forming a dike swarm all of the
same material which intruded at roughly the same time. The most common dike swarms in the Precambrian of Ontario are
diabase dike swarms extending up to 3000 km in length which can form up to 30% of the Earth's crust at the center of the
swarm.

federal classification lists three: Hudson Bay Lowlands, Boreal Shield, and Mixed Woods Plains. The North American
classification subdivides the Boreal Shield into the Boreal Shield and Great Lakes/St Lawrence.
The Emergency Management Historical Event data class will store the locations of historical occurrences of emergency events
as assigned to the Ministry of Natural Resources by Order-In -Council (OIC) under the Emergency Management and Civil
Protection Act. Most of these events will have involved community evacuations, significant structural loss, and/or involvement
of an Emergency Response Officer. These events fall into one of ten (10) type categories: Dam Failure; Drought / Low Water;
Erosion; Flood; Forest Fire; Soil and Bedrock Instability; Petroleum Resource Center Event, EMO Requested Assistance,
Continuity of Operations Event, Other Requested Assistance Detailed information about the actual events will be stored and
managed elsewhere using other database tools (this will be referred to below as the EM data tool.


This concrete class corresponds to the FRI feature of the same name. An FRI Wetland is a wetland that appears on the Forest
Resource Inventory, but which may not have been evaluated by the Ministry.
A surface along which movement of a body of rock has occurred. Faults are marked by ground up rock and alteration brought
about by fluids circulating along the fault. Faults may be exposed on surface and are therefore traceable in rock exposures on
the Earth's surface today.

A Fire Disturbance Area is an area greater than 40 hectares in size that has been disturbed by forest fire. This area represents
the exterior perimeter mapping of the forest fire only. Large interior green (unburned) areas within the forest fire perimeter are
not normally mapped. The disturbance area does not identify the severity of the burn nor represent any mortality information or
other impacts on forest cover. Perimeters may be based upon GPS mapping or post-fire digitizing of paper maps. Prior to
1998, only fires greater than 200 hectares in size were mapped.


Represents the estimated starting point of a forest fire for which the perimeter was not mapped.
A Fire Management Area is a polygon feature that represents a Ministry of Natural Resources Fire Program operations
management area. Fire Management Areas are formally referred to as Fire Management Headquarters Areas and are
analogous to Ministry districts. In all cases the areas follow Ministry district boundaries and in most cases a Headquarters Area
will have the same extent as one Ministry district. In some cases the Headquarters Area will encompass two Ministry districts.
In all there are 22 HQ areas.


A geographic area characterized by the same forest fire management objectives based on similarities in forest types, land
uses, and fire loads, and by similar impacts of fires on society, wood supply and the ecosystem.
A Fire Response Sector is a geographical area for which fire response planning and attack services are delivered. In some
locations response sector boundaries coincide with OMNR District boundaries, but elsewhere, many response sectors contain
portions of more than one district and do not follow any other administrative OMNR boundaries. There are a total of 14 Fire
Response Sectors in the province. The boundaries for these areas can be verified by the AFFM, Flood and Fire Management
Section.
A Fire Weather Sector is an administrative area that represents a local climatic area and is issued by AFFM, Flood and Fire
Management Section for forest fire weather forecasting purposes. North of the French River, weather sector boundaries
closely correspond to the areas used by Environment Canada for public weather forecasting. South of the French River,
OMNR combined 25 Environment Canada areas into 6 larger units (E13-18). Fire Weather Sectors are also identified by an
official name tied to the sector?s general geographical area. The boundaries for these areas can be verified by the AFFM,
Flood and Fire Management Section.


Zones created to manage the potential spread of fish pathogens. Each zone identifies an area that is affected, not affected, or
not known to be affected by fish pathogens.


The Fish Pathogen Boundary Segment layer forms the boundary of the Fish Pathogen Management Zones and is made up of
segments the majority of which were taken from the Ontario Road Network. This dataclass was created in order to store the
road name information associated with each segment that makes up the fish pathogen management zone boundary.
No description available at this time.


An area where a non-biological event, such as wind or ice storm, has damaged areas of forested land.
Identifies and describes the forested area in the province of Ontario. Forested areas may either be currently forested or
managed as future-forests. These areas may be described with various measurement values, observations, and development-
stage data. The level of detail in which a forest is described will vary according to local need. Relevant *legislation associated
and identified by the Forest Information Manual (FIM) dictates minimum content and vintage of data within the Area of the
Undertaking and the Northern Boreal Initiative. There are no inventories planned for Southern Ontario. Water is delineated but
not described. Non-forested areas such as rock, muskeg, developed agricultural land, etc. are identified but are only described
with ecosite codes Note: For the purposes of brevity, references to the FIM Forest Resources Inventory Technical
Specifications have been shortened in field descriptions to "FRI Tech Spec". * Includes the Crown Forest Sustainability Act
(1995), Class Environmental Assessment for Timber Management on Crown Land (Timber EA)
Represents the mapped events where forest fungal, bacterial and viral pathogens have caused damage by reducing growth
rates, tree vigour or have caused tree mortality. Only the outer perimeter of the damage events are generally mapped e.g. no
distinction between smaller areas within that were unaffected. Examples of forest diseases include White Pine Blister Rust,
Armillaria Root Rot etc.
Represents a mapped event where forest insect pests have damaged trees by defoliation, foliage mining and wood boring, or
contributed to tree mortality. Only the outer perimeter of the damage events are generally mapped e.g. there is no distinction
between smaller areas within that were unaffected. In addition to infestations, forest mortality areas caused by these insect
pests are mapped as separate events.
Represents the administrative boundaries of all, or part of a Crown forest designated as a "Management Unit" (MU) under
Section 7 of the Crown Forest Sustainability Act. The mapped boundary locations are interpreted/derived from the
Licensee/Management Unit text descriptions on file with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Forest Management
Branch.
Includes forest damage events that cannot be singly attributed to a specific abiotic, insect or disease agent or event. These
miscellaneous events are often the result of the cumulative effect of a combination of these aforementioned event types. For
example, Aspen Decline where repeated infestations of Forest Tent Caterpillar combined with several seasons of prolonged
drought resulted in tree mortality.


The site occupied by a facility that processes or converts forest resources as defined by the Ontario Ministry of Natural
Resources, Industry Relations Branch e.g. Pulp/Paper/Paperboard, Sawmill, Veneer etc. Each facility has one or more
processing sites, each dedicated to processing resources for a specific purpose. For example, a Pulp/Paper/Paperboard
facility has one processing site dedicated to producing pulp, and another one dedicated to producing paper.


Extents/boundaries of geographic features and unincorporated places that have been officially named or which are being
considered for official naming. Data set also contains geographical referencing information (type of feature or place, location
coordinates, geographic township, municipal and map references) about these features and places and background
information behind their official naming (name status, naming date, name origin, naming history, etc).


A Geographic Township is a polygon feature that indicates the fundamental land subdivision fabric of the Province. Each
Geographic Township area may or may not be the same as the jurisdictional area of the township.
Land identifying the original township survey, a fundamental land subdivision in the Province. The townships, concessions and
lots comprise the original township fabric of the Province. The spatial accuracy of the lot fabric for some townships has been
improved through the Ontario Parcel, Township Realignment and Township Improvement projects. Improvements to the fabric
may include: road allowance widths, spatial changes to better represent the location of lot boundaries, and more consistent
concession names.


Granulite facies is the highest facies of regional metamorphism in which rocks have been subject to heat and pressure just
below the melting point of sedimentary rocks i.e. 650 degrees C. these rocks contain garnet and both ortho and clinopyroxene.


Granulite facies is the highest facies of regional metamorphism in which rocks have been subject to heat and pressure just
below the melting point of sedimentary rocks i.e. 650 degrees C. These rocks contain garnet and both ortho and
clinopyroxene. The faults in this data set have been generalized to a scale of 1: 250 000.
A Habitat Planning Range is a polygon feature that identifies an area for which habitat criteria, climatological information, and
species occurrence information combine to make it an exemplary habitat for a particular species. The Area Biologist usually
determines the boundaries for such areas.


Areas of hummocky topography are generally associated with glaciofluvial ice-contact deposit and till in end moraines formed
along the ice margin or in areas of stagnant ice.


Land identifying Indian Reserve boundaries for the Province of Ontario defined by the Legal Surveys Division of Natural

deposits and now permanently filled with water.
Intrusive rocks with high contents of magnesium, iron and alkali elements. Commonly porphyritic with pehenocrysts of olivine,
phlogopite and garnet. Generally has a brecciated or fragmental texture. Kimberlites can contain diamonds in rare cases.
Lamprophyres are broadly similar in chemistry but do not generally contain diamonds. Both rock types form dikes and small
intrusions generally of Mesozoic age in Ontario. The dataset is an overview of this geology on a Provincial Compilation scale of
1: 250 000.

The Lake Simcoe Protection Act Watershed Boundary (LSPAWB) was created to support the Lake Simcoe Protection Act. The
boundary was first created by the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) in 2005 as part of a Source Water
Protection boundary project using the LSRCA 2002 5-meter Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and the best available data at the
time. The portions of the watershed where the boundary shared a border with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority

that are representative of all of Ontario’s natural regions, protects provincially significant elements of Ontario’s natural and
cultural heritage, and maintains biodiversity and provides opportunities for compatible, ecologically sustainable recreation. The
objectives in establishing and managing conservation reserves are: to permanently protect representative ecosystems,
biodiversity and provincially significant elements of Ontario’s natural and cultural heritage and to manage these areas to
ensure that ecological integrity is maintained; to provide opportunities for ecologically sustainable outdoor recreation
opportunities and encourage
associated economic benefits; to provide opportunities for residents of Ontario and visitors to increase their knowledge and
appreciation of Ontario’s natural and cultural heritage; and to facilitate scientific research and to provide points of reference to
support monitoring of ecological change on the broader landscape. Provincial parks are classified as one of the following:
waterway, wilderness, natural environment, recreation, cultural heritage, or nature reserve. Each class has a set of standard
management polices and permitted uses. Business Note: if a Provincial Park has a management plan, it must have at least
one Park Zone.

Great Ice sheets have convered parts of Ontario several times, most recently during the Quaternary Period. This most recent
glaciation has played a major role in shaping and creating the physical landscape of Ontario. The deposits and effects of these
glaciations are widespread with till being the most common deposit left by the Laurentide Ice Sheet. Three main end members
of till were produced, sandy tills from the erosion of Precambrian rocks; silty tills derived from the erosion of carbonate rocks
and clayey tills deposited in front of the glacier in local or regional area of ponding. Considerable vollumes of melt water were
generated by, and discharged from, the glaciers that once occupied Ontario. Large amounts of glacial debris were transported
by the meltwater and deposited as stratified sediments under the glacier and along the ice margin (glaciofluvial ice_contact
deposits), and beyond and streams (glaciofluvial outwash deposits), lakes (glaciolacustrine and lucustrine deposits) and seas
the ice margin in rivers
(glaciomarine and marine deposits). The Quaternary Geology Data Set is a digital interpretation of this Surficial Geology for

Soil surveys in Ontario are the business of the Ministry of Agriculture Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA). The data standard for
soil surveys is aligned to be consistent with a national framework. The Detailed Soil Survey data for Ontario classified
according to federal standard (CANSIS). Currently Soil Map Units are differentiated by province and soil survey. Over time,
these will become more generatlized to provide a standard classification across surveys within the province. Some Soil Map
Units use older OSIS classification but over time their soil types will be described via the more comprehensive CANSIS
system. Soil surveys were conducted on a county by county basis in agricultural Southern Ontario beginning in 1945 and
continuing to the present day. The original survey data has been aligned to the Ontario digital base and adjacent surveys have
been edgematched to remove gaps and overlaps.
The area of land and water governed by a Source Protection Authority which defines the watershed area within which the
terms of reference, assessment reports and source protection plans must be developed. The Source Protection Area
Generalized (SPAGEN) data class is a generalized version of the official Source Protection Planning Boundary (SPPB) owned
by the Ontario Ministry of Environment (MOE), which is tied to Regulation 284/07 of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The official
version of the boundary is only available to MOE, MNR, Source Protection Authorities and Municipalities recognized under the
CWA. This boundary is used in the management of watershed-based source protection plans, and provides the best science-
based possible. Polygons are based on primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary watershed boundaries with possible
where definition available
modifications by Source Protection Authorities and Municipalities where better terrain modeling data and expert local
knowledge exists. A Source Protection Area (SPA) may be made up of multiple individual polygons each with its own landform,
such as island, Watershed, Lake/River. A Source Protection Authority is the agency, person or body responsible for
developing a Source Protection Plan. "Generally, the source protection authority follows the same structure as the
conservation authority boards, which are made up of members appointed by municipal councils."

Observations of species that are of local interest or concern. Observations of provinciallly tracked species are not captured in
this class for sensitivity/security reasons
An area with suitable habitat where a provincial tracked species is known to live. What constitutes an occurrence depends
upon the species. For example, a bird occurence is usually defined as a breeding area or migration staging area, but not as a
single sighting by a bird watcher. A plant occurrence is usually any place where the plant occurs naturally. Note the term
occurrence refers to the species, not single individuals of the species. For instance, seven pairs of birds nesting in a
contiguous woodlot would be considered one occurrence, not seven. This class is focused on, but not limited to, VTE species
and is co-ordinated by the NHIC.

The Great Lake divisions are derived from the Provincial Watersheds of Ontario (eg. the Secondary and Quaternary
Watershed definitions), which are based on the federal "Drainage Area" reporting framework originally known as the Water
Resources Index Inventory Filing System (WRIIF ? See metadata for details). These watersheds primarily support the OWRA
and assist the practitioner in assessing water transfer issues and applications, but are not strictly limited to this use.
Watersheds are used in many types of landscape analysis. They are the fundamental unit in which we can understand water in
our landscape, including water quantity (flows, levels, etc) and quality (contamination, source protection, etc). These
watersheds are suitable for regional-wide applications only. If a boundary dispute occurs, refer to larger scale mapping if
available or further investigation using survey-grade expertise and technology on-site is recommended to verify the location of

This packaged product includes three compressed Arc Interchange files of selected wildlife habitat to support municipal
planning under the Greenbelt Act. Includes polygon mapping of NRVIS deer yards and deer wintering areas from Guelph
District and Midhurst District.

This data is stored as series of shapefiles. One shapefile consists of known HYDAT FLOW gauge locations that are part of the
Environment Canada/Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources Cost Share agreement. For each of these gauges, there is a
shapefile containing a watershed. The name of the watershed shapefile contains the StationID of the gauge. Watershed
boundaries were defined using NRVIS data and the Provincial Digital Elevation Model produced by the Water Resources
Information Program (WRIP). A separate MS Access database stores a series of watershed characteristics that can be linked
to the shapefiles. These characteristics include; watershed area, watershed perimeter, lake area, wetland area, other water
area (double line streams, reservoirs), terrestrial area, reach slope, length of longest stream, longest stream slope, stream
order, gauge elevation, geolgy summary, landcover summary, length of all streams, and number of first order streams. Most
watersheds and gauges are characterized but are incomplete.

A Geographic Township is a polygon feature that indicates the fundamental land subdivision fabric of the Province. Each
Geographic Township area may or may not be the same as the jurisdictional area of the township. The location of Township
lines on the Ontario Base Map (OBM) were determined by using a combination of both survey information i.e. retracements,
original township plans, surveys notes, etc.; and OBM physical features such as roads, trails, fencelines, and water bodies. In
some areas where there were almost no OBM physical features available, aerial photographs may have been used to help
determine boundaries. For more information, see Digital Topographic Data Base Overview Version 2 OMNR Provincial
Mapping Office, 1994. All digital information is confined to the Oak Ridges Moraine area and a 2 kilometre surrounding zone.
Scale: 1:10,000


The Indian Reserves dataset represents a subset of the Land Ownership data class in the Natural Resources and Values
Information System (NRVIS). Indian Reserves and other Federal Lands were derived from the Ontario Base Map (OBM). For
more information, see Digital Topographic Data Base Overview Version 2 OMNR Provincial Mapping Office, 1994. All digital
information is confined to the Oak Ridges Moraine area and a 2 kilometre surrounding zone. Scale: 1:10,000

The lots dataset represents polygon features that identify surveyed areas that are a portion of a Concession within a
Geographic Township. This information was captured digitally through the Ontario Base Mapping Program. This dataset has
been further updated by the Office of the Surveyor General (OSG) through the Township Improvement Project initiative. The
location of Lot lines on the OBM were determined by using a combination of both survey information i.e. retracements, original
township plans, surveys notes, etc.; and OBM physical features such as roads, trails, fencelines, and water bodies. In some
areas where there were almost no OBM physical features available, aerial photographs may have been used to help determine
boundaries. The lots dataset provides a guide to the fundamental land subdivision of the Province. The geographic township
fabric (which includes lots) is shown as it was originally surveyed, unless it has been annulled upon the instruction of the
Surveyor General. All digital information is confined to the Oak Ridges Moraine area and a 2 kilometre surrounding zone.


This data set contains lower-tier municipal boundary information including the new single tier structure (Toronto, Chatham-

The Niagara Escarpment Plan (NEP) boundary forms part of the western boundary of the Oak Ridges Moraine Area. This
dataset represents this coincident boundary segment.

The dataset for generalized occurrences of rare, threatened and endangered (RTE) species contains 1 square kilometre
blocks. Each block indicates with a general location an element (a unit of natural biological diversity) occurrence (an area of
land and/or water in which an Element is, or was, present). Multiple blocks can be overlapping in cases where multiple
Element Occurrences are found in the same general area. The Natural Heritage Information Centre (NHIC) maintains this
information in its Element Occurrence database. NHIC's Element Occurrence (EO) data is the product of the review and
quality checking of many data sources. Personal accounts of rare species are reported to NHIC and incorporated into the
database. The majority of the EO data comes from existing data sets. These include the Atlas of Rare Vascular Plants of
Ontario, COSEWIC Rare Vascular Plant Database, the Ontario Fish Distribution Database, the Ontario Herpetofaunal
Summary, Ontario Rare Breeding Bird Program, Atlas of the Breeding Birds of Ontario, Ontario Butterfly Atlas, Ontario Aquatic
