[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Thematic mapping allows data visualization and provides a better understanding
of the data using spatial distribution. The Mapping Federal-Provincial Mining
Knowledge web site is a tool where it is possible to visualize and overlay
different layers of information. The themes used include: Nova Scotia mineral
occurrences, smelters, aboriginal communities, promising new mines (1999-2002),
exploration projects, producing mines (1999), deposits, resource-dependent
communities, ecumene, geological provinces, and watersheds.

Note: Users will see a difference between number of map layers offered on the
English and French web sites. Development of layers is continuing.To visualize
pertinent information on Canada's mineral resource industries.
