GeoBase lets you access horizontal and vertical geodetic control information for thousands of points distributed across Canada. The information for each marker includes geographic and UTM coordinates, orthometric height, marker information description, and inspection data. The Canadian Geodetic Network includes points from the following four principal control networks

  • Canadian Base Network
  • Primary Vertical Bench Marks
  • Federal 3-D Densification Network
  • Federal 2-D Densification Network

The purpose of importing this data, is so that Land Survayors, city planners, architects, park management and anyone else who need to know where property boundries are; This information is critical. Because OpenStreetMap is free and OpenSource, it means that users can go ahead and instantly post the work that they are doing.
