The Atlas of Canada - Toporama

Use the Atlas of Canada to locate NTS (National Topographic Survey) gridlines.  In the Map Layers and Legend(s) legend, make sure that grids (NTS/Lat Long/UTM) is one of the themes checked.  In the GeologyOntario database, it may be useful to search by NTS instead of keyword, especially since there may not be a keyword search function.
