Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The data set is a fully georeferenced, purely digital product. The cities are based on the Canadian Geographic Names Database as well as the toponymic data from the NTDB* (in Urban Areas), this data product has been enhanced by more accurately placing the features in relationship to CanMap® Streetfiles. Each point is flagged with a "Position" code, which categorizes the feature based on its positional accuracy. The data has also been researched and re-categorized where appropriate.
*NTDB is the National Topographic Data Base, developed and maintained by Natural Resources Canada.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The following steps were performed by ESRI: Extracted data set from DMTI Spatial™ Canadian Data Bundle. Moved the city Iqaluit to Canada Major Cities, as it is the capital of Nunavut. Removed unneeded attributes. Created ArcView legend file (.avl), ArcGIS™ layer file (.lyr) file, projection file (.prj), and spatial indices.
