FREE Online Tutorials to Help You Use the Agricultural Information Atlas!

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) developed a series of tutorials to help you use the Agricultural Information Atlas (AIA). The tutorials provide step-by-step instructions on a range of topics – from the basics of navigating through the application to creating specific maps for submissions to OMAFRA.

With the AIA, you can:
• create custom maps for your farm
• create farm sketches for nutrient management and tile drainage planning
• find agricultural information for Ontario

You can find the 13 tutorials on the OMAFRA website. To access the AIA, go to the AgMaps Geographic Information Portal at
