Abstract:
This product provides on-line search capabilities for Nova Scotia's bibliographic geoscience database called NovaScan. All records contained in NovaScan are accessible as FGDC compliant metadata though the GeoConnections Discovery Portal and the Canadian Geoscience Knowledge Network (CGKN).NOVASCAN is the bibliographic geoscience database for Nova Scotia and is produced and maintained by the Mineral Resources Branch of the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources. NOVASCAN contains geologically indexed records of all the geoscience maps and documents produced by or collected by the Mineral Resources Branch, such as: maps (geology, geochemistry, geophysics, land use, mineral deposits, mineral rights etc.) publications (bulletins, economic geology series, memoirs, papers, reports etc.) open files (illustrations, maps, reports) university theses (B.Sc. M.Sc., Ph.D.) mineral exploration assessment reports. NOVASCAN is updated monthly as new geoscience maps, documents and mineral exploration assessment reports become available. Please note that NOVASCAN does not contain any records of Geological Survey of Canada documents or maps. z39.50s://198.166.215.89:210/nsmrb_nsnmd Spatial Data Organization Information - Indirect Spatial Reference: Direct Spatial Reference: Raster Object Type: Row Count: Column Count: Vertical Count: Spatial Reference Information - Horizontal Coordinate System Definition - Planar - Planar Coordinate Encoding Method: Coordinate Representation: Abscissa Resolution: Ordinate Resolution: Distance and Bearing Representation: Distance Resolution: Bearing Resolution: Bearing Units: Bearing Reference Direction: Bearing Reference Meridian: Planar Distance Units: Geodetic Model: Horizontal Datum Name: Ellipsoid Name: Semi-major Axis: Denominator of Flattening Ratio: Keywords - Acts and Regulations;
