Bedrock Geological Units, Groundwater Geoscience Program The bedrock geologic units designate units of the same types of rock which composed the solid rock exposed at ground surface (as outcrop) or which underlies unconsolidated surficial sediments. This dataset represents a general description of the stratigraphy and geology, including geologic unit thickness, morphology, age and rank. It features a list of the geologic unit names and types of rock (lithology) in the hydrogeological unit, from a controlled vocabulary. While the preferred format to deliver this data is by using a shapefile and its linked attributes, this dataset can be delivered also by providing link to external data which should have at least the same properties or also by joining a georeferenced image of the map. 2016-03-31 2017-12-12 Natural Resources Canada nrcan.gsc-geosciencedata-donneesgeoscience-cgc.rncan@canada.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyHydrogeology Bedrock Geological Units, Groundwater Geoscience Program (English web service)HTML http://gin.gw-info.net/service/api_ngwds:gin2/en/data/standard.download.html?THEME=2&BBOX=-180,30.84375,5.019531,90 Bedrock Geological Units, Groundwater Geoscience Program (English web service)WMS http://gin.gw-info.net/service/gin/wms/mediator/gin_en?request=GetCapabilities&version=1.3.0&service=WMS&LAYERS=bedrockgeology&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Bedrock Geological Units, Groundwater Geoscience Program (French web service)HTML http://gin.gw-info.net/service/api_ngwds:gin2/fr/data/standard.download.html?THEME=2&BBOX=-180,30.84375,5.019531,90 Bedrock Geological Units, Groundwater Geoscience Program (French web service)WMS http://gin.gw-info.net/service/gin/wms/mediator/gin_fr?request=GetCapabilities&version=1.3.0&service=WMS&LAYERS=bedrockgeology&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
