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 Chart of the World ()

Access: Web
Description:
The Digital Chart of the World (DCW) is an Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI) product originally developed for the US Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) using DMA data. We used the DCW 1993 version at 1:1,000,000 scale. The DMA data sources are aeronautical charts, which emphasize landmarks important from flying altitudes. This explains why there is a separate aeronautical theme with all conceivable airports, yet why on some themes small islands and lakes are simply unnamed points. ESRI, in compiling the DCW, also eliminated some detail and made some assumptions for handling tiny polygons and edgematching. Also, note that the completeness of the thematic categories present in each layer will vary. Please read the layer descriptions (through links in the following table).

Except for P10, which relates to Neoproterozoic, other packages do not correspond to the chrono-stratigraphic subdivisions recommended by the Subcommission on Precambrian Stratigraphy and these subdivisions are not used on the map.

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

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.
