Bedrock Geology of Alberta (GIS data, polygon features)

Bedrock Geology of Alberta (GIS data, polygon features) This GIS dataset is part of a digital compilation of the bedrock geology of Alberta. It is one of the datasets used to produce Alberta Geological Survey (AGS) Map 600. This dataset represents the compilation of existing geological maps and original geological mapping by AGS staff. Mapping in support of the dataset included field observations and creating three-dimensional models of subsurface stratigraphy based on the interpretation of geophysical logs from oil and gas wells. Each three-dimensional formation surface was projected to a model of the bedrock surface, and the intersection formed the first approximation of the position of the geological contact at the base of the surficial deposits. We adjusted these preliminary contacts to honour outcrop data and the interpretation of the bedrock unit immediately below surficial deposits in individual wells. The data were created in geodatabase format and output for public distribution in shapefile format. AGS Open File Report 2013-02 presents additional information on data sources related to this dataset. 2024-04-03 Government of Alberta AGS-Info@aer.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and Technology72E72L72M73D73E73L73M74D74E74L74M82G82H82I82J82N82O82P83A83B83C83D83E83F83G83H83I83J83K83L83M83N83O83P84A84B84C84D84E84F84G84H84I84J84K84L84M84N84O84PALBERTAATHABASCA-BASINBATTLE-FORMATIONBEDROCK-GEOLOGYBELLY-RIVER-GROUPCANADACANADIAN-SHIELDCOLORADO-GROUPDEVONIANDUNVEGAN-FORMATIONFORT-ST--JOHN-GROUPGEOLOGYGEOSCIENTIFICINFORMATIONGIS-DATAMANNVILLE-GROUPSCOLLARD-FORMATIONSMOKY-GROUPGovernment information Bedrock Geology of Alberta (GIS data, polygon features) - (HTML)HTML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/5155d48cce344493b4f6fb4eb94fb348/html Original metadata (https://open.alberta.ca/opendata)HTML https://open.alberta.ca/opendata/34739138-af4f-4d9d-a7fb-f18a8e694398 Bedrock Geology of Alberta (GIS data, polygon features) - (XML)XML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/5155d48cce344493b4f6fb4eb94fb348/xml SHP (From Alberta Geodiscorver Portal metadata)ZIP https://static.ags.aer.ca/files/document/DIG/DIG_2013_0018.zip
