AbstractRemote predictive mapping was applied to regional-scale bedrock mapping in support of the Boothia Integrated Geoscience Project. An integrated interpretation of high-resolution airborne magnetic, Landsat TM, and legacy geological field data resulted in a provisional geological map that was used to guide regional bedrock mapping. After the newly acquired field data were incorporated into the geoscience database, the RPM was upgraded to 1:250 000 scale geological maps in a second iteration of image interpretation and map compilation. This case study outlines the applied RPM methodology and discusses the resulting interpretations from new insights obtained by field mapping.
