2015 data updates are now available from DMTI for route logistics, parks, rail, water and EPOI (enhanced points of interest). A file name index (PDF) and data dictionary (PDF) have been prepared to aid users in navigating through DMTI folders and products.
In August 2015, the Geospatial Centre received from the Region of Waterloo 2014 full colour orthoimagery. These 1 km tiles have a resolution of 12 cm. Data format are stored as TIFF image files. Individual file size is approximately 205 MB. Total data package size is 389 GB.
As part of an ongoing improvement process, we're committed to monitoring the quality of the services we provide at the Geospatial Centre. We would really appreciate your feedback regarding your recent experiences at the Geospatial Centre.
As part of an Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) initiative, the Geospatial Centre has scanned, and made available to the public archival (1957 – 1966) 1:25,000 topographic (NTS) maps. The high-quality TIF files were scanned at 600 dpi, and have an average file size of 750 MB.
To access files, please come to the Geospatial Centre during reference hours.
This data resource was received from the City of Waterloo in May, 2015. The 1 km x 1 km tiled data set was collected between November 2nd - 3rd, 2014 with an average flying height above ground of 1,200 metres (m) producing a horizontal accuracy of ~0.31 m root square mean error (rmse).
Received 2015 municipal data from the City of Waterloo.

Under the guidance of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, over 40 private and government entities worked to produce this product. SCOOP digital imagery (20 cm resolution) was collected with sensor Leica geosystems ADS80 SH82 for areas of Ontario between April 26th and May 7th 2013.
The project encompassed an area of approximately 35,762 square kilometers, covering parts of South Central Ontario including Peterborough, Haliburton, Muskoka, Simcoe and surrounding areas.
In April 2015, the Geospatial Centre received from the Region of Waterloo 2012 full colour orthoimagery. These 1 km tiles have a resolution of 12 cm and cover the cities of Waterloo, Kitchener, Cambridge and surrounding communities.
This data resource is available in both colour (RGB) as well as infrared (CIR) mosaics. Both mosaics cover the entire City of Waterloo and have a pixel resolution of 12 cm. This data was provided to the Geospatial Centre by the City of Waterloo in January 2015.
