AbstractThe Tri-Territorial (Tri-T) Bedrock Knowledge Entry Tool (KET) is a data entry tool that comprises the first step in a workflow to capture, validate and populate the Tri-Territorial Bedrock Database, a repository of geological map information for the Canadian Arctic, north of 60 degrees. As an XML based form, the KET was developed to provide a comprehensive, user-friendly tool for parsing complex geological relationships and concepts from published geological maps and supplementary geoscience publications. To maintain consistency between the Tri-T database and KET, an integrated and internally consistent science language was developed based on government and international standards. Once loaded into the database, the depth of attribution and hierarchical classification of map units captured through the KET enable complex queries and re-classification of units internal to a specific map and across all maps in the Tri-T Bedrock database. This report describes the design, rationale and functionality of the KET as an important component towards building a new compilation of the geology of the Canadian North.
