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.

Urban Sprawl and Other Major Land Use Conversions in Ontario's Greenbelt From 1993 to 2007: A Change Analysis Project Using Satellite Imagery

(2008-07-02) The Ontario Greenbelt presents both opportunities and challenges for managing growth and retaining natural areas and key agricultural production lands. This report contributed to a larger project (by the David Suzuki Foundation and the Greenbelt foundation) around analyzing key ecosystem values in Ontario's Greenbelt.

Recent Anthropogenic Changes within the Boreal Forests of Ontario and Their Potential Impacts on Woodland Caribou

(2007-03-27) This stage of GFWC's "Where's the Best of What's Left?" project involved identifying all disturbances to Ontario's Boreal that were caused by industry in the 1990s and early 2000s. The potential impacts of these disturbances on woodland caribou habitat were also considered in this analysis.

Very recent (2000-2006) Anthropogenic Changes within the Boreal Forests of Ontario - Case Studies

(2007-03-27) Data contains all human-caused forest disturbances (e.g., clearcuts, roads, reservoirs) for the approximate period of 2000 to 2006 within the Global Forest Watch Canada Ontario case study areas ("Northwest Ontario" and "Kenogami") defined by selected Landsat 5/7 image pairs.
