Summary
Abstract: The Canadian Geoscience Publications Directory (CGPD) is an online Canadian
geoscience directory developed by the National Geological Surveys Committee and
the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC), to provide graphical public access to
metadata describing geoscience maps and reports published by all Canadian
government survey organizations.

Current Contents

Federal Data (GSC) - Consists of all GSC maps and Open Files and includes
GSC's formal report style publications (Bulletins, Memoirs, Papers etc.) from
1970 to the present. This totals approximately 30,000 records updated to June
2000.

British Columbia - Consists of 298 Bedrock Mapping publications
(Bulletins, Open Files, Preliminary Maps and Papers) dating back to 1958.

Alberta - A total of 291 records including Alberta Open File Reports,
Earth Sciences Reports, Maps and Information Series publications. Note:
publication boundaries are based on NTS 50,000 sheet boundaries and not actual
areas of coverage.

Saskatchewan - Location of 286 Precambrian Bedrock Geology maps published
as Saskatchewan Energy and Mines Reports, Maps, Preliminary Maps and Open Files
from 1948 to 1997. Contents also includes a Geological Map of Saskatchewan at
1:1,000,000 scale as well as location information of known mineral occurrences.

Manitoba - Consists of 967 publications dating from 1937 and includes
Manitoba Geological Reports and Papers, Educational Series publications,
Preliminary Maps, field trip guidebooks and Open Files.

Ontario - Consists of approximately 3000 publications dating from 1892.
This includes Ontario publications series, ARM, M1, M2, M5, M8, MDC, MS, OFM,
OFR, P and S.

Qu?bec - Represents approximately 52,000 of the current 62,000
bibliographic references from Qu?bec's EXAMINE database. This consists of an
inventory of all Qu?bec geoscientific documents from 1860 to the present and
includes 56,000 references to mining exploration files and 1700 references to
Earth science theses.

Nova Scotia - All currently published maps (83) dating from 1966 to the
present. Total field and vertical gradient magnetic data for the entire
province as well as Meguma Terrane vertical gradient data is available for
viewing and can be downloaded free of charge from Nova Scotia.

Newfoundland - Currently lists 2189 records dating from 1907 to the
present. This includes Newfoundland Open Files, Bulletins, Memoirs, Maps,
Mineral Resource Reports and Soil Survey Bulletins. Mineral Occurence locations
are now available.

Prince Edward Island - Only federal (GSC) data is available.

Yukon - Contains 389 records dating from 1971 to the present. This
includes Yukon publications series such as EGSD Bulletins, Geoscience maps,
Mineral Industry Reports and Open Files. Yukon MINFILE mineral occurrence data
now available.

Northwest Territories - Currently contains 135 Economic Geology Series
Maps and Papers from 1988 to 1997.

Note: New Brunswick content is still under construction.The purpose of
the Canadian Geoscience Publication Directory is to provide "single-window"
internet access to Canadian Geoscience publications.
