CSW_GEOLOGY.BEDROCK_GEOLOGY_POLY


Data Identification
Abstract: Yukon Bedrock Geology MapThis update of the Yukon bedrock geology map builds upon the previous compilation by Gordey and Makepeace (1999, 2001). It includes new, detailed bedrock geology maps and regional compilations that have been published by the Yukon Geological Survey and the Geological Survey of Canada between 1999 and 2015, as well as some recent thesis works. A few of these maps were partially integrated into the digital dataset by Gordey and Makepeace (2003), but only as overlay to the 1999 compilation. A number of errors and omissions from the 1999 compilation of Gordey and Makepeace were also noted and corrected during compilation of this version of the map. The Yukon bedrock geology GIS dataset is regularly updated and can be downloaded from the Yukon Geological Survey’s website: www.geology.gov.yk.ca. Users are advised to consult the website regularly to ensure they are working with the latest version of the geodatabase or shape files. This update of the GIS dataset includes an expanded attribute structure (compared to the 1999 dataset) that facilitates searching of the geodatabase. This dataset requires the gscGeology font in order to properly label the bedrock polygons. This font file is packaged with the dataset when downloaded from geomaticsyukon.ca or geology.gov.yk.ca.The Yukon Geological Survey aims to provide users with the best available geoscience data for Yukon. Any revisions or additional geological information known to the user would be welcomed by the Yukon Geological Survey.Contact Person:Maurice Colpron (Maurice.Colpron@gov.yk.ca)
Purpose: A geological compilation map of the Yukon Territory intended for use by the exploration community, prospectors and geologists.
