The New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development began creating its first GIS data in 1982. At that time, GIS technology was beyond the reach of most people and industry. In the intervening years, GIS technology has become available to a wider and wider array of groups and individuals. This has lead to more and more groups and individuals wishing to access the large amounts of data the department has accumulated over the years. In the interests of enhancing both the life and business opportunities for the people of New Brunswick, the Department is proud to supply data for public consumption, either through direct access or by download. Additional datasets are also available from GeoNB’s Data Catalog website.
