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.
