Example of a thematic map

Land cover represents the surface properties of the land. Land cover information is a basic requirement for the determination of land use and, ultimately, of land value. Canada's land area totals nearly 10 million km2. The two most extensive land cover types in Canada are evergreen needleleaf forest (26%) and low vegetation/barren (25%), representing just over half of Canada's land cover.
