UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) 1 Km Grid

Many geometrical schemes - or map projections - are used to represent the curved surface of the Earth on map sheets.

Canada uses the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) system. It is called transverse because the strips run north-south rather than east-west along the equator.

This data class shows a 1 km x 1 km UTM NAD83 grid that is a standard reference index for Ontario.

It includes:

  • Military Grid Reference
  • Fire Base Map identifier
  • Fire Base Map Block
  • Atlas identifier
