DP ME 374, Version 1, 2006. Enhanced Aeromagnetic and Digital Elevation Image Collectively Covering Parts of NTS Map Sheets 21A/04, 21B/01, 20O/09, 20O/16, 20P/12 and 20P/13, Yarmouth - Cape St. Marys Area of Nova Scotia (10 m x 10 m Resolution)


This digital data set consists of a single colour TIFF file, where high resolution aeromagnetic surveys exist over the Yarmouth - Cape St. Marys area in the western Meguma Terrane. The TIFF represents the second vertical derivative of the vertical gradient magnetic data combined with digital elevation data. The original data was collected by aeromagnetic surveys flown by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC). The data has been gridded to a 10 m cell size. These images were derived from some of the same aeromagnetic surveys as used to create the DP ME 8 and 372 products.
