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. z39.50s://198.166.215.89:210/nsmrb_dpmd Spatial Data Organization Information - Indirect Spatial Reference: Direct Spatial Reference: point, vector and raster Raster Object Type: Row Count: Column Count: Vertical Count: Spatial Reference Information - Horizontal Coordinate System Definition - Planar - Map Projection Name: Transverse Mercator Scale Factor at Central Meridian: 0.9996 Longitude of Central Meridian: -63.0 Latitude of Projection Origin: 0 False Easting: 500000 False Northing: 0 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: North American Datum of 1927 Ellipsoid Name: Clarke 1866 Semi-major Axis: 6378206.4 Denominator of Flattening Ratio: 294.978698
