Surficial geology, Wollaston Peninsula, Victoria Island, Nunavut–Northwest Territories, NTS 87-D, parts of 87-A, B, C, E, and F: M183-1/248-2016E-PDF

"This new surficial geology map product represents the conversion of A-series map 1650A and its legend only, using the Geological Survey of Canada’s Surficial Data Model (SDM version 2.1) which can be found in Open File 7741. All geoscience knowledge and information from map 1650A that conformed to the current SDM were maintained during the conversion process. Additional material such as marginal notes or figures which may exist on the original map, are not included here. Supplementary, limited legacy information was added to complement the converted geoscience data. This consists of a few glacial striations, and cross-cutting crag-and-tails and drumlinoid ridges, from Fyles, 1963. 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 geologic map information in a structured and consistent manner. This provides an effective knowledge management tool designed around a geo-database which can expand following the type of information to appear on new surficial geology maps"--Abstract, Map information document, p. [3].
