Superior Data Compilation

Welcome to the Superior Data Compilation which is a comprehensive dataset of integrated and standardized geospatial geological data within the Superior Craton. The compilation also presents relevant geospatial data released from several geological surveys for use in ArcGIS. The purpose of this compilation is to provide a platform for geoscientists to seamlessly visualize, interrogate, and investigate geological information across political boundaries.

 

Superior Compilation Map 2018

Below are links to PDF versions of the Superior Craton Compilation. The map presents standardized descriptive lithological units throughout the Superior Craton, the location of craton- and sub province-scale faults, and tectonic subdivisions.

Superior Compilation GIS Dataset 2018

Below is a link to a comprehensive GIS dataset of integrated and standardized geospatial and geological data within the Superior Craton. The compilation presents relevant geospatial data released from several geological surveys and newly integrated layers for use in ArcGIS. The folder contains the geospatial data and supporting metadata.

This GIS compilation is provided as a compressed downloadable package of 3 separate files, created using an open source compression utility; 7-Zip (https://www.7-zip.org/); however, most compression utilities are suitable for extracting the data. All 3 compressed files must be present to extract the entire compilation.

The uncompressed data will require approximately 18.0 GB of hard disk space. To extract the data, right click the first zipped file (*.001) and select the appropriate action based on the compression utility you have installed on your system.
