DNR Spatial Data

New Brunswick Department Of Natural Resources Spatial Data Files

UNB Libraries and the Department of Natural Resources signed a sharing agreement which will allow students, faculty, and staff to access DNR data for academic (non-commercial) use only. The purpose of the agreement is to facilitate the use of spatial data in the academic sector to foster the development of analytical skills using spatial data, and to support research within the academic sector. It is the understanding of both parties that due care and consideration will be given to the security and integrity of the files included under the agreement. The terms of the licence must be agreed to prior to obtaining the files.

Current geospatial data from the Government of New Brunswick is available via GeoNB Data Catalogue. To add GeoNB your available GIS servers use "" as your URL.
