About the National Elevation Data Strategy
The National Elevation Data Strategy, implemented by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), aims to increase high-resolution elevation data coverage for Canada and improve accessibility to the products. Collaboration is a key factor to the success of the Strategy. Data is thus acquired by multiple projects from different partners. The HRDEM product is part of the CanElevation Series created in support of the National Elevation Data Strategy.
