Summary
Abstract: The Generalized Geology of the World is a highly simplified digital geological
data set composed of geographically referenced rock unit patchworks and fault
lines which can be combined with tables of descriptive data. These attribute
tables contain broadly classified age, main rock type, and name information.
This combination of digital data can be used to produce a thematic display.

Access Constraints The dataset is copyrighted by the Geological Survey of Canada.
Use Constraints The data are meant for the preparation of displays which visually communicate
global geoscientific patterns at scales approximating the 1:35,000,000 scale
for which they were prepared. They are not intended for any type of
quantitative analysis, because much detail was omitted, and units were grouped
and simplified in the process of generalization. ... View entire text
