COBS-SWO-Standard Study Areas and Masked Extents

Context: Two geodatabases (Standard_Study_Areas_2006.gdb and Standard_Study_Areas_Masks_Extents_2006.gdb), have been created to easily portray various study areas used by the Neptis Foundation. The study areas available include: The Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH), Greenlands, Greater Toronto Area (GTA), Greater Toronto Area plus Hamilton (GTAH), Business As Usual and Business As Usual extended with the later two being available through the masks extents geodatabase. These study areas are represented using CD geography level data with the COBS lakes and SWO extent being used to define some masked extents.

Process: To easily and efficiently define each of the study areas used by the Neptis Foundation.

Coverage Area: South Western Ontario
