  • Updated Yukon Basemap now available

    by Nicole Parry | Aug 01, 2018

    There is a new Yukon Basemap available for the Yukon which includes an updated road network and the latest topographic information from the CanVec layers. 

    It is available on the GeoYukon application and via the web service for other applications:

    http://mapservices.gov.yk.ca/arcgis/rest/services/Yukon_Basemap_Cache/MapServer

    This basemap will replace the previous Basemap (BaseMap_Cache), which is based on older roads information and the old National Topographic Database layers. This basemap service is considered to be legacy.

  • New Forestry dataset in CSW: Personal Use Fuelwood Areas - 50k

    by Lauren Crooks | Jul 12, 2018

    This feature class identifies active areas designated for personal use woodcutting where harvesting dead or downed fuelwood can occur for purposes such as home heating. Certain areas have seasonal restrictions or additional terms and conditions. A forest resources permit is required to cut in these areas; this free permit authorizes a limit of 25m3(11 cords) of firewood. Failure to have a permit or carry it with you when cutting could result in enforcement action.

    If you have any questions about the content of this dataset, please contact forestry@gov.yk.ca

    This dataset is now on the geomatics yukon ftpsite and will be added to GeoYukon in the coming weeks

  • GeoYukon: new CanVec base added

    by Nicole Parry | Dec 06, 2017

    The CanVec Base Data is now available in GeoYukon. CanVec is a new set of base data for the Yukon, which is more current and positionally accurate than the older National Topographic Data Base (NTDB) that we have been using for many years.  

    In order to aid users in the transition to the new CanVec Base Data we have made available both collections of Base Data.  The NTDB is now considered to be a legacy base data collection, however, we're aware that many data sets have been developed based on this and will require some time to transition to the new CanVec base.  The NTDB collection will eventually be removed.

    The CanVec Base Data should be used primarily, unless you have a specific requirement for the legacy NTDB data content.

    Please be aware that the cached Base Map under the Base Map heading is still using the NTDB data content.  There are plans in place in the near term to update the content of this cached map service as well.  

    If you have any questions, please contact Geomatics.Help@gov.yk.ca.
