    New and updated Canadian Topographic Maps now available via GeoGratis include 104 maps at 1:50 000 scale covering areas in the Atlantic Provinces, Quebec, Ontario, the Prairies and Canada’s North. The maps released in the North include 38 brand new maps covering large areas of Baffin Island previously unmapped at 1:50 000 scale. These new maps are the first of 1600 new topographic maps of Canada's northern regions to be produced by NRCan over the next two and a half years.
