Geophysical Data Set 1035

Geophysical Data Set 1036
Single Master Gravity and Aeromagnetic Data for Ontario, Geosoft® Format

Original Release Date: July 12, 1999
Notification Date of Data Errata: December 9, 2014

An error was discovered in the Lambert Conformal Conic co-ordinates of the magnetic and gravity databases. The X co-ordinate values should have had 1 000 000 added to them. The latitude and longitude values are unaffected. Also, in the database of digitized aeromagnetic values, “ONDTZMAG”, it was found that the parameter names “EDITMAG” and “LEVMAG” had been switched. Both of these errors are present in Geophysical Data Set 1035 (ASCII format) and in Geophysical Data Set 1036 (Geosoft® binary format).

These errors have been corrected and replacement versions of these Geophysical Data Sets are available. If you purchased this product on CD, please contact Publication Sales and a replacement CD will be sent to you free of charge. Alternatively, you may visit the GeologyOntario application to obtain the corrected versions of GDS 1035 and GDS 1036.

We regret any inconvenience these errors may have caused.
