Urban Sprawl and Other Major Land Use Conversions in Ontario's Greenbelt From 1993 to 2007

(2008-07-02) This dataset was developed to determine the extent and location of changes within the Ontario Greenbelt between 1993 and 2007. While the analysis likely underestimates the amount of conversion, a key result of the study was that there was very little conversion or loss of forests and wetlands, but a disproportionately high conversion of high-value agricultural lands to urban/built-up areas.
