This GIS dataset is a Yukon-wide compilation of surficial geology polygons derived from 75 published and unpublished 1:50,000 surficial geology maps produced by the GSC, Yukon Geological Survey and various universities. All polygon map unit labels have been converted to standardized map unit labels, based on the British Columbia terrain classification system. Standardized attributes include: surficial material, texture, age, surface expression and geomorphological processes.
