Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) Maps
The Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) has published thousands of maps since the mid-1800's. More than 10,000 of these maps have been scanned and are freely available online. Newer maps have been created as digital files. You can search all GSC publications, including maps, using GEOSCAN. If you find a map on GEOSCAN that has not yet been scanned/digitized then please check our library catalogue for a print version (use the tips in the search box above to find maps).
"A" Series Maps: This is a well-known, long-running series of geology maps produced by the GSC; the series has recently been replaced by the Canadian Geoscience Map (CGM) Series. You can search GEOSCAN specifically for these series by selecting them from the "Series" field on the Advanced Search page.
The Science Library also has a large collection of print "A" Series Maps:
A collection of paleogeographic maps of the ancient world. Maps illustrate Earth's varied landscapes over hundreds of millions of years of geologic time, including distribution of shallow seas, ocean basins, mountain ranges, coastal plains, and continental interiors. Tectonic features shown include subduction zones, island arcs, mid-ocean ridges and accreting terranes. Latest geologic data from the scientific literature are used to compile and construct the ancient Earth.
License Information: There are no restrictions to the number of simultaneous users. Access is restricted to current students, faculty, and staff of the University of Saskatchewan for educational, research, and non-commercial personal use. It is accessible in the library, on campus, and remotely. Systematic copying or downloading of electronic resource content is not permitted by Canadian and International Copyright law.
