AbstractSurficial materials and surficial geology maps provide important geoscience information required for geological reconstructions, mineral exploration and development, and land use planning in northern Canada. In this study, remote predictive mapping was used to map surficial materials and derive surficial geology for Upper Carp Lake NTS 85P, located within the Slave Geological Province. The maps were generated using radiometrically balanced LANDSAT 7 imagery and ancillary data in conjunction with knowledge gained from field observations, airphoto interpretation and legacy datasets. This Open File contains graphical and digital georeferenced versions of the predictive maps. A printable version of the predictive surficial geology map is provided in pdf format (map scale 1:125 000).
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Remote predictive mapping was used to derive a predictive surficial geology map for Upper Carp Lake NTS 85-P. The predictive map was generated using satellite imagery, airphoto interpretations, fire history, elevation models, field observations and legacy datasets. This Open File contains graphical and digital geo-referenced versions of the predictive maps. A printable version of the predictive surficial geology map is provided in pdf format (map scale 1:125 000).
