Does anyone know where you can download Canadian National PArk Data. In particular, I am looking for a good boundaries layer and trail data. The boundaries layer I have is probably 1:2,000,000.

Thanks in advance.

See Geogratis for national park boundaries.

The file you want on Geogratis is: Protarea which is also known as the protected area polygon shape file. You can create lines out of those polygons. Also you will need to do a quarry if your looking for the National Parks:

SELECT * FROM [Protarea Drawing] WHERE TYPE = "NP"

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

You can also get a KML-file from Protected Planet, but that is likely based on the Geogratis data. You can examine it in the online interface there.

Thanks, got it.

I was also wondering what European data sources are available (free and for a fee). In particular I was looking for Italy and France.

Thanks

What kind of data, and at what scale... ?

At that scale you probably have to go to national sources (which will likely not be free). For pay you might also want to look at the Collins Bartholomew databases (not sure what the scale is).

Then there is the GISCO datasets, and there might also be datasets from EEA that you can use - not sure about the scales, but it is probably more like 1:1mill or so.

GISCO

Oh - free data also includes Open Streetmap, of course.
