Launch the Agricultural Information Atlas

The Agricultural Information Atlas is an interactive online application that allows you to create custom maps and find agricultural information for Ontario. It combines agricultural data on soils and drainage, as well as data layers from other Government of Ontario ministries.

With the Agricultural Information Atlas, you can:

  • create custom maps for your farm
  • customize and label your maps using mapping tools
  • create farm sketches for government programs
  • research soil information for your land
  • Find out the ministry staff person who works in your area of the province

We have given the Agricultural Information Atlas a makeover! We added new buttons and a new "About" tab, and updated several of the features within the application in order to meet the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

For more information on how to use the features of the Agricultural Information Atlas, visit the Agricultural Information Atlas Help web page.
