The York University Map Library holds a few examples of “orthophoto” maps made using aerial or satellite photos to map an area without the need of a skilled cartographer, pen, and ink. You can see a Department of Defence Kingston orthophoto map elsewhere in the Civic Atlas, and here's a 1969 example of one showing Yellowknife from the Northwest Survey Corporation Ltd. Also, you can find a Canadaland Commons podcast for info about the Giant Mine which is just north of the area pictured if you follow the road at top left. 

A reproduction available at 12x18" or 24x36" on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm paper printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink. Sold in an open edition, unframed. Based on this original public domain image held by the York University Digital Library.
