Data & Statistics
Spatial and Numeric Data Services, Data and Statistics collects and provides access to aggregate data and Statistics Canada licensed microdata files.
Our collection has over 200,000 print maps. Coverage is worldwide with emphasis on Calgary, Alberta, and Canada. Maps vary in scale, date, and theme. Major sets include the National Topographic Series (NTS) for Canada, Alberta resources, and City of Calgary topographic and community district series.
The collection includes about one million air photos, with Calgary and southern Alberta as the primary focus. There is less inclusive coverage for northern Alberta and other provinces and territories. Air photos are taken at various scales and years; Calgary coverage starts in 1924.
Please note: as of May 22 2018, SANDS will no longer circulate air photos. Scanners are available; please bring a data drive to transport files.
