Environment and Climate Change Canada

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) supports authoritative data publishing to the Federal Geospatial Platform (FGP) and Canada’s Open Government Portal.

The OCIO Data Catalogue Service team leverages FME to build streamlined workflows to transform data of hundreds of formats, harvest from GeoNetwork and OGC Catalogue Service via APIs, catalogue metadata, perform QA/QC, and provide feedback to program areas on data improvement. 

ECCC has been contributing to Open Government with thousands of published datasets that meet open standards. Automated data validation with no coding enables the team to improve work efficiency, eliminate human errors, and support more open data publishing. This ultimately helps improve authoritative data sharing among federal departments and agencies and increase government transparency.

Environment and Climate Change Canada informs Canadians about protecting and conserving natural heritage, and ensuring a clean, safe and sustainable environment for present and future generations.

This project was done in partnership with Consortech.
