DescriptionThe Road Network File is a digital representation of Canada's national road network, containing information such as street names, types, directions and address ranges. User applications of this file may include mapping, geocoding, geographic searching, area delineation, and database maintenance as a source for street names and locations. Since statistical activities do not require absolute positional accuracy, relative positional accuracy takes precedence in the Road Network File. As a result, this file is not suitable for engineering applications, emergency dispatching services, surveying or legal applications. A reference guide is included. Data sourced from http://www.statcan.gc.ca/, please reference this as the source if you re-use the data. More details about the roads dataset can be found here: http://www12.statcan.gc.ca/census-recensement/2011/geo/RNF-FRR/index-eng.cfm. GIS vector data. This dataset was first accessioned in the EDINA ShareGeo Open repository on 2012-02-13 and migrated to Edinburgh DataShare on 2017-02-21.
