Assignment 6
1. The name of the data set: Circum-Arctic Resource Appraisal (north of the Arctic Circle)
Assessment Units
2. Dataset description:
The Assessment Unit is the fundamental unit used in the World Petroleum Resources Project. The
Assessment Unit is defined within the context of the higher-level Total Petroleum System. The
Assessment Unit is shown here as a geographic boundary interpreted, defined, and mapped by the
geologist responsible for the province and incorporates a set of known or postulated oil and (or) gas
accumulations sharing similar geologic, geographic, and temporal properties within the Total
Petroleum System, such as source rock, timing, migration pathways, trapping mechanism, and
hydrocarbon type. The Assessment Unit boundary is defined geologically as the limits of the
geologic elements that define the Assessment Unit, such as limits of reservoir rock, geologic
structures, source rock, and seal lithologies. The purpose of these files is to define and illustrate the
geographic limit and geologic boundaries of the Assessment Units within the defined Total
Petroleum Systems, as required for the USGS World Petroleum Resources Project. The Assessment
Units were used as the fundamental units for the assessment of undiscovered oil and gas. The
assessment unit boundaries define the combined geologic limits of each Assessment Unit and are
described and defined in the text portions of this assessment publication.

1. The name of the data set: Atlas of Canada - North Circumpolar Region Map
2. Description: The North Circumpolar Region map provides a comprehensive view of the area of
Canada and the World situated between 55ºN latitude and the North Pole.
Special features include all federal, provincial and territorial boundaries for Canada including the
Nunavut proposed boundary as well as the international boundaries of neighbouring countries. The
North Circumpolar Region map also includes major road and rail transportation networks,
hydrography and ice cover, a selection of populated places along with administrative, provincial and
national capitals, offshore features such as ocean bathymetry the international date line and Canada's
exclusive fishing zone. This set of base maps was originally prepared in an analogue form for the
production of the National Atlas 5th edition. They were used as base maps to overlay the thematic
information used in the preparation of Atlas maps. The digital versions were derived from the
original base maps in order to complete the 5th edition of the national atlas. They are the official
bases used by the Atlas of Canada for the production of all their maps.

6. The time period for which the data is presumed accurate: January 1, 1985 to November 1, 2002
7. Data format: vector (a side note: The data I found was in E00 format. I had to use FME
Workbench to transform the data from E00 into an ArcGIS Shapefile).

9.Key attribute information: political boundaries. I may end up limiting my final project to Canadian
natural resources, infrastructure, and shipping lanes.
