But there are still large areas of Canada lacking even regional documentation of the surficial nattmap, and similar gaps exist with regional surficial geochemical mapping and geophysical mapping. The following solution should allow users to fully install map files onto a PC.

More than man years of fieldwork went into the creation of the National Naatmap Map. Project proposals that stated objectives, methods, budgets, milestones and participants were remarkably brief and general and were usually approved and annually renewed with limited discussion.

Projects would be GSC-led, but the requisite technical and academic expertise could be drawn from the appropriate source, whether GSC, provincial or territorial survey or university.

Is there a strategy in selecting the areas being mapped or remapped? Each scientific endeavour would need to bring together all the tools and expertise necessary to provide the complete geoscience story. Mapping must be the principal component, but projects should incorporate other disciplines e.

The circumstances that suggested the need for particular geoscience knowledge; The constraints on the extant knowledge; The goals of the particular NATMAP project; Areas to natmaap researched, necessary expertise, sharing of duties and techniques and technologies to be employed to achieve these goals; and Significant new insights and implications from the new geoscience acquired.
