Overview

The Agricultural Ecumene Boundary File represents Canada's agricultural ecumene. Ecumene, a word derived from the Greek root oixos meaning inhabited and nenon meaning space, is a term used by geographers to indicate inhabited land. It generally refers to land where people have made their permanent home, and to all areas that are considered occupied and used for agricultural or any other economic purposes.

The Agricultural Ecumene Boundary File is portrayed in latitude and longitude coordinates (North American Datum of 1983 [NAD83]). Figure 2.1 illustrates an example of a Lambert conformal conic projected cartographic boundary file and an unprojected file in latitude and longitude coordinates.
