Abstract(unpublished)
The CanTopo Map Standards and Specifications 1:50 000 are a description of all features and information shown on a Canadian Topographic map produced by the Collections Management and GeoInformation Division (the former Centre for Topographic Information Ottawa) of Natural Resources Canada since 2009. This includes a definition of each map feature, instructions on how each feature is compiled and a description of the cartographic symbols used to represent each map feature. Also described in this document is how "non feature" information is to be depicted on a Canadian Topographic map. This information includes the map legend, scale, border and grid as well as notes describing the magnetic declination, map projection and contour interval.
This publication is often referred to as the CanTopo Specs and provides the user with a comprehensive description and illustration of all features and information portrayed on a Canadian Topographic map at a scale of 1:50 000.
Before 2009 the 1:50 000 Topographic maps produced by Natural Resources Canada used the "National Topographic System (NTS) Polychrome Map Standards and Specifications".
