New Feature: Explore Data by Watershed

July 11, 2019

DataStream’s new watershed boundary layers cut back on guesswork and make it easier to explore data in the regions that matter to you. We’ve incorporated watershed map layers across all three platforms thanks to geospatial data available on Canada’s Open Government Portal (open data for the win!).

About our watershed layers

Watershed boundaries featured on DataStream are based on the Water Survey of Canada’s “Sub-Drainage Areas” (there are 164 of them). To learn more about the source files used, visit our references page.
