Surficial Geology of Southern Ontario - (including Toronto) Miscellaneous Release Data 128 (2003)

Date: 2003
Creator: Ontario Geological Survey
Datum:
Projection:
Scale: 1:50,000
Access: 2 CD-ROMs [018 - 1&2]
Description:
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
