Bedrock Geology of Ontario Miscellaneous Release Data 126 (2006)

Date: 2006
Creator: Ontario Geological Survey
Datum:
Projection:
Scale:
Access: web and CD ROM [251]
Description:
The Bedrock Geology Data Set is a Geological map of the Province and shows the distribution of bedrock units underlying Ontario. It illustrates geological rock types, major faults, iron formations, Kimberlite Intrusions and dike swarms. The geology of the Province consists of Precambrian rocks of the Canadian Shield and Phanerozoic sedimentary rocks in basins that overlie the Canadian Shield. Based on differences in age, metamorphism and tectonic setting, the Precambrian rocks are subdivided into the Superior, Southern and Grenville provinces. The Phanerozoic rocks occur in four basins. Major faults and shear zones are also included. The legend is subdivided geochronologically in the Phanerozoic, but geochronometrically in the Proterozoic and Archean. The Archean rocks of the Superior Province are subdivided into lithologic units. Supracrustal units of the Southern Province and the Phanerozoic Eon are subdivided lithostratigraphically. The Grenville Province is subdivided into major tectonic blocks and within each block the legend is mainly lithologic, with only part of the supracrustal rock record subdivided into lithostratigraphic units. The dataset is an overview of this geology on a Provincial Compilation scale of 1:250 000 and it illustrates geological rock types, major faults, iron formations, kimberlite and dike swarms.

Digital Elevation Model of the Greater Toronto Area, Southern Ontario Bathymetry (1999)

Date: 1999
Creator: Natural Resources Canada, Geological Survey of Canada (Paquette, Russell, Moore, and Hinton)
Datum: NAD
Projection: UTM Zone 17
Scale: 1:50000 or 30 metre
Access: CD-ROM #015
Description:
"A hydrologically conditioned Digital elevation Model has been developed for the Greater Toronto Area of southern Ontario and for Lake Ontario. The model has been developed from 1:50 000 NTDB data onshore and Canadian Hydrographic Service bathymetric point data for Lake Ontario. Terrain specific interpolation and drainage enforcement techniques within the ARC/INFO TOPOGRID software module were used to interpolate the data to a gred cell of 30m. Verification of the model demonstrates that elevations are correct to plus or minus 3m. This digital elevation model is suitable for the automatic delineation of watersheds. This report documents the development of the model included on this compact disc. The model was developed as part of the Geological Survey of Canada Oak Ridges Moraine National Mapping and Hydrogeology programs in conjunction with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and the Canadian Hydrographic Service.

Description:
Accurate hydrologic data (over-lake precipitation, runoff, lake evaporation, net basin supplies, connecting channel flows, diversion flows, beginning-of-month lake levels, and changes in storage) are required for simulation, forecasting, and water resource studies on the Laurentian Great Lakes and their basins. These data are derived from meteorological and hydrological data. The 1993 reference is an update of the earlier report describing Great Lakes monthly hydrologic data. It was expanded and revised to include all available data through 1990 and to reflect improved computational techniques. The raw data utilized were collected from several sources, so the periods of record for each lake vary.

Also includes the external connections layer which identifies the river valley connections references in section 3.2.5. These connections identify linkages beyond the Greenbelt Natural Heritage system through existing or approved urban areas to inland lakes and Lake Ontario.

There is a detailed map of downtown Toronto, including the underground pedestrian/shopping system. Also, included is a GO Transit system map and a TTC Subway map. Maps may be custom edited, with symbols or points of interest. It is possible to determine distances and determine travel routes by drawing on the map from the point of departure to the final destination. The toolbar makes interaction with the maps easy, allowing the user to query the database, highlight points of interest, measure distances, navigate around the current map and more. A locator map window provides a small scale view of the area being studied.

The Surficial Geology of Southern Ontario data set is a GIS based geological map that shows the distribution and characteristics of surficial units across Southern Ontario. It illustrates surficial deposits types, material types, geological features (i.e. drumlins, eskers) and general bedrock types and outcrops. The data used to generate the map was derived from Quaternary maps, primarily at a scale of 1:50,000, complied by the Ontario Geological Survey (OGS) and the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) over the last 40 years. A total of 124 maps (36 belonging to the GSC) create this seamless coverage. (From: metadata page provided by Ministry of Northern Development and Mines) The data is available on 2 CD-ROMs. CD 1 contains a complete set of data in geographic co-ordinates (decimal degrees, NAD 83); CD 2 contains the same information but in UTM, grid zones 17 and 18; and a pdf file of the Surficial Geology of Ontario map. Both CDs have a raster dataset (hillshade image) in jpeg format. Also available via Land Information Ontario's OGDE server. Also contains soils for Toronto

Tectonic Assemblages of Ontario Seamless Coverage Data Set 11, 1993. (1993)

Date: 1993
Creator: Ontario Geological Survey
Datum: NAD 27
Projection: Lambert Conformal Conic
Scale:
Access: CD-ROM [253] or CD-ROM [263]
Description:
The Tectonic Geology Data Set is a digital interpretation of the Tectonic Geology of the Province of Ontario, It illustrates this by 1) grouping volcanic and sedimentary rock units into tectonic assemblages in Precambrain terrains and depositional sequences in the overlying Paleozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary basins; and 2) interpreting the ranges of emplacement ages of all major intrusions and grouping some plutons into suites. Among a range of tectonically significant features, the map also displays major folds, faults, stratigraphic younging directions, interpreted centres of volcanism and locations of U/Pb age determinations, which are numbered and cross-referenced to a table of ages. This map represents the first attempt internationally to subdivide Archean rock units into Tectonic assemblages, and the first attempt in Ontario to subdivide Paleozic and Mesozoic rock units into depositional sequences. The purpose of this map is to portray the distribution of magmatism and sedimentation in time and space in the rock record of Ontario. The intended user is a geologist with an academic or applied mineral exploration interest in the components of the bedrock of Ontario that forms the basis of its geochronometric and tectonic record.

Access: CD-ROM [254]
Description:
Geographic Township is a polygon feature that indicates the fundamental land subdivision fabric of the Province. Each Geographic Township area may or may not be the same as the jurisdictional area of the township. The location of township lines on the Ontario Base Maps (OBM) were determined by using a combination of both survey information, i.e., retracements, original township plans, surveys notes, etc.; and OBM physical features such as roads, trails, fence lines, and water bodies. In some areas where there were almost no OBM physical features available, aerial photographs may have been used to help determine boundaries. Unorganized areas are derived from Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources Base Map Areas. Data are available in ArcView 3.x format.

Abstract from Metadata web page:
"Wooded Area polygons represent the boundaries of woodlands (forests, woodlots, hedgerows, and plantations) in Southern Ontario. The woodland dataset is one of numerous products derived through the implementation of the SOLRIS project. The methodology used in SOLRIS Phase 1 involves updating the NRVIS wooded area (WOODAREA concrete class) data through the interpretation of remotely sensed data including orthophotography, Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) and colour infrared aerial photography. This dataset represents wooded areas within the MNR Southern Region classified into 'Treed', 'Hedgerow' and 'Plantation' classes."
