Summary
Abstract: This collection contains all of the downloadable digital geoscience data
products produced by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources, Mineral
Resources Branch (MRB). These products include geological maps, databases and
images. The products are intended for use in Geographic Information System
(GIS) software or other software packages that can use the data. The products
are available in a variety of formats including: ESRI Shapefiles; ESRI exchange
format (E00) files; DXF/DBF; and images in TIFF and JPEG format with ArcView
world file. Some map products may also have associated PDF files.The intent of
this collection is to allow users access to MRB digital geoscience data
products. Each product has a metadata record. The metadata records can be
searched to assist users to discover geoscience data products on Nova Scotia
that meet the criteria they are searching for and to provide a link to allow
the user to download those products for their use for free.
