Launched in 2012, Scholars GeoPortal is a geospatial data hardware and software infrastructure collaboration that provides access to over 5000 large scale geospatial datasets and over 3 million Ontario aerial images. The GeoPortal provides users with a sophisticated search, discovery, map visualization and analysis tools, to make data readily viewable and downloadable to Ontario researchers. Geospatial data resources include data licensed by Ontario academic libraries, such as land-based vector data (soil, water, cultural points of interest, etc.), provincial and municipal data, census geography, and a large collection of aerial images and orthophotography. Increasingly, the GeoPortal also includes enhanced open data and historical digitized map collections such as topographic maps from OCUL map library collections and project collaborations (see OCUL Historical Topographic Maps Project https://ocul.on.ca/topomaps).
For a full listing of the collection available view the GeoPortal site map.
