Bedrock Geology of Alberta, Structures (GIS data, line features)

Bedrock Geology of Alberta, Structures (GIS data, line 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 contains lines representing linear structural elements. In the Rocky Mountains and Foothills these include thrust faults, normal faults and transverse faults as well as the axes of folds (anticlines and synclines). In the Canadian Shield and the Athabasca Basin all faults are given the same symbol (i.e., fault, type unspecified). 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. 2024-02-21 Government of Alberta AGS-Info@aer.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and Technology72E72L72M73D73E73L73M74D74E74L74M82G82H82I82J82N82O82P83A83B83C83D83E83F83G83H83I83J83K83L83M83N83O83P84A84B84C84D84E84F84G84H84I84J84K84L84M84N84O84PALBERTAATHABASCA-BASINBEDROCK-GEOLOGYCANADAFAULTGEOLOGYGEOSCIENTIFICINFORMATIONGIS-DATASTRUCTURALTHRUST-FAULTGovernment information Bedrock Geology of Alberta, Structures (GIS data, line features) - (HTML)HTML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/a805cdd040814684b5e320e426f40578/html Original metadata (https://open.alberta.ca/opendata)HTML https://open.alberta.ca/opendata/73a59323-df64-4818-8a84-0e8911cfa8fb Bedrock Geology of Alberta, Structures (GIS data, line features) - (XML)XML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/a805cdd040814684b5e320e426f40578/xml SHP (From Alberta Geodiscorver Portal metadata)ZIP https://static.ags.aer.ca/files/document/DIG/DIG_2013_0021.zip
