AbstractThis new surficial geology map product represents the conversion of Map 1366A (Prest, 1973) and its legend, using the Geological Survey of Canada's Surficial Data Model (SDM version 2.3.0) (Deblonde et al., 2017). All geoscience knowledge and information from Map 1366A that conformed to the SDM were maintained during the conversion process. Additional legacy information that exists on the original map is not included here. Supplementary legacy information from original marginal notes was added to complement the converted map unit descriptions. The purpose of converting legacy map data to a common science language and common legend is to enable and facilitate the efficient digital compilation, interpretation, management, and dissemination of geological map information in a structured and consistent manner. This provides an effective knowledge-management tool designed around a geodatabase that can expand, following the type of information to appear on new surficial geology maps.
