COBS-SWO-Standard Rail 2008

Context: The geodatabase contains the major transportation infrastructure line for roads and rail, as well as a point data set for GO Transit Stations. The roads data set is derived from the Ministry of Transportation Digital Cartographic Reference Base (DCRB).  Rail data set is derived from the Natural Resources Values and Information System (NRVIS) developed by the Ministry of Natural Resources and updated to active lines as of 2008 with reference to CN and GO Transit websites.  The point data set was created for GO Transit Rail Stations using this same information.  TTC rail lines were created referencing TTC website and DMTI’s Rail and Transit Lines data set.

Process: A series of selection, manual edits and generalization techniques were performed on the above-named data sets to create four transportation data sets.

Coverage Area: Southwestern Ontario
