History

Date Posted to GIS:
2005
  • 1976: Geology by J.E. Armstrong 1949-1952, 1973-1975, W.L. Brown 1949, 1952
  • 1979: Surficial Geology of Fraser Lowlands Maps produced. GSC Map 92G6 created by J.E. Armstrong and S.R. Hicock. Printed 1979 - GSC Map 1486A Vancouver.
  • 1994: The Surficial Geology of the Fraser Lowland, originally published by J.E. Armstrong and S.R. Hicock at 1:50,000 scale in 1979/80, is released in digital format under the auspices of the Geological Survey of Canada, Vancouver Hydrogeology Program. In 1994, GSC maps 1484A, 1485A, 1486A, and 1487A were digitized in ARC/INFO Version 6.1 using UTM Coordinates (NAD27) and converted to DXF format for each layer. These files were then loaded into AutoCAD Version 12 and compiled and converted to a single DXF file.
  • 2005: This dataset was acquired from the Geological Survey of Canada and was digitized into the GIS.
  • 2012: Throughout 2010 and 2011, J.M. Bednarski, on behalf of Natural Resources Canada, mapped the surifical geology of the District in greater detail than previous surveys. This work was done during the data acquisition phase of the HAZUS intiative.
  • 2014: Updated dataset was acquired from the Natural Resources Canada and added into the GIS.
