A Three-Dimensional Geological Model of the Paleozoic Bedrock of Southern Ontario; by T.R. Carter, F.R. Brunton, J.K. Clark, L. Fortner, C. Freckelton, C.E. Logan, H.A.J. Russell, M. Somers, L. Sutherland and K.H. Yeung. This digital product comprises a regional three-dimensional (3-D) lithostratigraphic model of the Paleozoic bedrock of southwestern and southcentral Ontario, covering an area of 110 000 km2. The model, which was constructed over a five-year period (2015 to 2019), encompasses the entire Phanerozoic succession, comprising 54 Paleozoic bedrock layers representing 70 formations plus a Precambrian layer and Quaternary sedimentary layer. It was compiled at a spatial resolution of 400 m. The model was constructed using Leapfrog® Works, an implicit modelling software application, that enables support of numeric groundwater flow modelling. Included in this release are 1) a summary report, in portable document format (.pdf), outlining methodologies and scientific approach to formation picks and types of regional data sets used to create the model; 2) Leapfrog® Works model layers (.lfview), which can be viewed on the viewer provided; and the individual formation layers of the model in 2 formats (.csv, .dxf); and 3) a library of Leapfrog® scenes (.pdf) depicting the 3-D bedrock geology of southern Ontario, prepared using the viewer tool. The data are available on 1 DVD. $25.00.
