AbstractThis CD-ROM digital release contains digital files for the surficial geology of the Greater Toronto and Oak Ridges Moraine areas. The data on this CD-ROM has been released previously as hardcopy Geological Survey of Canada Open File 3062. Additionally, all of the 1:50 000 scale mapsheets in this release have been released in hardcopy format by either the Geological Survey of Canada or Ontario Geological Survey. New mapping was completed for the nine mapsheets within the NATMAP study area. This re-mapping is based on new field work complemented by archival field data. Combined most maps have > 1,000 field sites. The six maps outside the NATMAP area have been re-mapped with a minimum of new fieldwork but include re-assessed archival data and a simple common legend. The summary map here retains the linework, legend, and many of the symbols of the 1:50 000 map series.
The geology coverage on this CD-ROM is provided in a variety of vector formats (E00, Shape, MapInfo).
This CD-ROM does not contain any base information from Geomatics Canada National Topographic Database.
The Oak Ridges Moraine NATMAP and Hydrogeology Project has been a collaborative geoscience project with the Ontario Geological Survey, Ontario Ministry of Environment and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.
