Comment This new surficial geology map product represents the conversion of NWT Open File 2006-02 and its legend, using the Geological Survey of Canada¿s Surficial Data Model (SDM version 2.3) (Open File 8236). All geoscience knowledge and information from map NWT Open File 2006-02 that conformed to the current SDM were maintained during the conversion process. Supplementary, limited legacy information was added to complement the converted geoscience data. This consists of glacial striations from Taylor, 1963, and are identified in the accompanying geodatabase. The purpose of converting legacy map data to a common science language and common legend is to enable and facilitate the efficient digital compilation, interpretation, management and dissemination of geologic map information in a structured and consistent manner. This provides an effective knowledge management tool designed around a geodatabase which can expand following the type of information to appear on new surficial geology maps.
