Data Description
  Abstract: This digital product is a digital version of Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources (NSDNR) Open File Map ME 2018-002, compiled by D.M. Brushett in 2018. The data and derived map depict the distribution and characteristics of Quaternary glacial and other surficial deposits in the eastern Cobequid Highlands of northern mainland Nova Scotia. The digital product was created by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources, Geoscience and Mines Branch (GMB) staff. The digital product contains layers for geological features such as drumlins, eskers, geological contacts, surficial geology units, ice flow, ice movement, station locations, and roche moutonnee.
  Purpose: Understanding the glacial history in this area, including past ice-flow trajectories, their associated landforms, bedrock erosion, glacial sediment transport and deposition, is vital for successful drift prospecting in the region.

Data Quality Information
 
Positional Accuracy
  Horizontal Accuracy Report: There may be positional accuracy errors in the digital data that come from the original data collection, plus there are errors added by the process of digitizing the features from the original published source maps or field maps. The transfer of this data from older base maps onto the current base maps may also produce some error. The user should be aware that using this data overlaid on topographic data that was not used during the digital capture of the data may result in apparent errors in the locations of the data that may or may not be real. The user should always try and use background topographic data that is the same as the source topographic data noted in this metadata. The entire risk as to the quality and accuracy of the data is with the user and the user shall use his/her own judgment in making use of the data or drawing conclusions from it.

  Technical Prerequisite: Technical Prerequisites - GIS data In order to view our digital files on your computer, you require mapping software (e.g. ArcGIS, ArcInfo, ArcView, MapInfo, AutoCAD). If you do not have this software, ESRI provides a number of free Map Viewers called ArcGIS Explorer, ArcExplorer 9.x and ArcExplorer 2 which you can download over the Internet. ArcGIS Explorer is the latest version of this family of viewing software and we encourage clients to use it if you are running newer PC’s with Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/explorer/arcexplorer.html). ArcExplorer 2 and ArcExplorer 9.x are no longer supported by ESRI but maybe more practical on older PC’s. ArcExplorer 2 will run on Windows 95 and NT 4.0 SP3 and works with our "E00", "SHP", "JPG", "SID" and "TIF" files, while ArcExplorer9 worked with our SHP, TIF, JPG and some web services. The "TIF" and "JPG" image file formats can also be viewed in a number of graphic and image software packages including CorelDraw and Paint Shop Pro. The MRSID "SID" images can be viewed in an increasing number of image packages as well as with a free MrSID viewer supplied by LizardTech. Links for these and other map viewers can be found at the bottom of https://novascotia.ca/natr/meb/pubs/pubs3.asp. Data Formats MRB provides its digital data products in a number of formats. You can find out more information on these formats and how to use them at https://novascotia.ca/natr/meb/download/dpformat.asp. NS DNR Fonts Information A number of NS DNR or GSC fonts may be required to properly view our data sets in an ArcMap project or to view the hard copy maps in a PDF format (normally the fonts will be embedded in the PDF). The fonts required for a particular data set may be found in the c:\nsdnr\dp999v9XX\d999YY\arcmap\fonts directory on your computer after you download the data set. A complete set of all of our fonts is available for download from our web site at https://novascotia.ca/natr/meb/download/dpinfo.asp. Any of these fonts can be installed on a Windows computer by using Start - Settings - Control Panel - Fonts - File - Install New Font and adding the font(s) downloaded to c:\nsdnr\fonts or c:\nsdnr\dp999v9XX\d999YY\arcmap\fonts. ArcMap Project Information Our SHP products include an ArcMap project (.mxd) which has all of the shapefiles symbolized and tables loaded with links and joins already created. This project uses relative paths so it should be drive and path independent. It can be found in the c:\nsdnr\dp442v1sh\d442lc\arcmap\project directory. ArcView Project Information Our SHP products include an ArcView project (.apr) which has all of the shapefiles symbolized and tables loaded with links and joins already created. This project uses relative paths so it should be drive and path independent. It can be found in the c:\nsdnr\dp442v1sh\d442lc\arcview\project directory. ArcExplorer Project Information We have also included an ArcExplorer 2 project (.aep) and an ArcExplorer 9.x (.axl) project for this data set that can be found in the c:\nsdnr\dp442v1sh\d442lc\arcexpl directory. The shapefiles are already loaded and have limited symbolization, any related tables are not loaded. The AEP project uses relative paths and should be no problem using it without any changes. The AXL project includes a string "c:\nsdnr\dp442v1sh" that will allow the AXL project to open automatically if you download the shapefile digital product (SHP) using the default settings. If you download the product to a different location you will need to edit this string in the AXL file using a text editor such as notebook and change the path to where you downloaded the digital product. Hotlinks In order to use the hotlink feature within ArcView 3.x you may need to load MRB's Hotlink Anything extension which may be located in the arcview/ext directory along with documentation. You may also need to set the variable MEBGIS_HOME on your system to the location of the data set on your system. The SHP product provides an ArcView project set up with the hotlinks working. Some modifications to the HOTLINK field in the database tables or in the HLFILES may be required to make the hotlink work properly. Knowledge of ArcView and hotlinks may be required to make this work properly. A feature called hotlinks is used in ArcView to link a feature such as a mineral occurrence or cross section to a single text file, image or web site etc. For features that we want to link multiple items or documents to we have developed our own hotlink extension for ArcView 3.x called "Hotlink Anything". The extension and documentation on how to install the extension, and set the required MEBGIS_HOME variable to the location of the data set on your system is included in the x:\nsgov\dig_prod_num\data_set_id\arcview\ext directory (example - c:\nsgov\dp305v1sh\g118a\arcview\ext) assuming that you used our default directories when downloading the data. The SHP product provides an ArcView project set up with the hotlinks working. Some modifications to the HOTLINK field in the database tables or in the HLFILES.TXT file may be required to make the hotlink work properly. Knowledge of ArcView and hotlinks may be required to make the native hotlink utility or our extension work properly. Problems and Limitations Problems have been reported trying to import ARC E00 files into ArcView on Windows 95 computers. Related tables do not import into ArcView. It is not a problem on UNIX, Windows 3.1 or Windows NT, or Windows 2000 platforms. If you experience this problem you can use our DXF/DBF product which contains the tables in dBase format. dBase files can be imported into ArcView. Geological maps and associated digital products are intended for use at the published scale of the map.
