 The MapPlace - Metadata for BC 2005 Geology Layers


MapPlace Home

Details: The Bedrock metadata files contain metadata for the following layers: Basins; Terranes; Volcanic, Sedimentary, Metamorphic and Intrusive rocks by era; Bedrock Geology- by lithology (hatched), by age and rock class (shade), by age and rock class (solid), and Map Unit Labels.  Contacts & Faults, Quaternary geology, and Ocean for geology layers have their own metadata files.  Many of these layers are downloadable as ARC Shapefiles and all are viewable through the maps of MapPlace.


These layers are represented in BC Albers (suffix _alb) and Geographic (decimal degrees) projections (suffix _dd); see Map Projection Standards for more information.  All projections use NAD83 as the datum.  The BC Albers projections have metadata available in FGDC standards and ISO standards through Data BC while the Geographic projections have metadata available in FGDC standards only.
