Abstract:
Canada Major Cities represent the locations of major cities within Canada. A major city is defined as:
a populated place that has been designated as a provincial or federal capital by Statistics Canada, or
a populated place that has been designated as a city by Natural Resources Canada and has a population greater than 100,000, or
a populated place that has been designated as urban by Statistics Canada, a city by Natural Resources Canada, and has a population within the range of 10,000 – 99,999 people, or
a populated place that has been designated as urban by Statistics Canada and a town by Natural Resources Canada.
Purpose:
Canada Major Cities provides an extensive database of names and locations for the major cities across Canada.
Supplemental_Information: Largest scale when displaying the data: 1:50,000.

Process_Description:
The product has been verified with sources such as: Natural Resources Canada - Canadian Geographic Names database and Statistics Canada Urban and Rural Area classifiers. The points are aligned to CanMap Streets and/or National Topographic Database features to improve positional accuracy.
Source_Produced_Citation_Abbreviation: DMTI Spatial Inc.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The following steps were performed by ESRI: Extracted the data set from DMTI Spatial Canadian Data Bundle. Changed the values of the CAPITAL attribute from "0", "1" to "N", "Y". Added the attribute LABEL_FLAG and calculated its values to "1" for all features where the values of attributes NAME and CSD_NAME are equal. Removed and rearranged attributes. Converted the data set to SDC. Created ArcGIS® layer file (.lyr), projection file (.prj), and spatial indices.
