Surficial geology of Alberta

This GIS layer is a generalized compilation of the surficial geology of Alberta using published Alberta Geological Survey, Geological Survey of Canada, and Environment Canada information, as well as university theses data (http://www.ags.gov.ab.ca/publications/abstracts/Map_601.html). Boundary discrepancies between information sources were largely resolved during the process of reclassifying the input data to a common legend with only limited remapping. This GIS layer was created at a scale of 1:1,000,000.
