Abstract: These data vectors are digitized from field maps created by Dr. József Tóth during his 1964 to 1969 fieldwork. Dr. Tóth is a distinguished hydrogeologist who developed and published his landmark "Unit Basin" theory of steady state flow leading to the fundamental concept in hydrogeology known as "Tothian flow system theory". His contributions to hydrogeology turned the Research Council of Alberta, and subsequently the University of Alberta, into internationally renowned institutions for hydrogeological research. Within this shapefile there are three regional lines which run parallel to dip in the Alberta basin. These lines are the boundaries used by Dr. Tóth to restrict his groundwater field investigations. There are also vectors which he has highlighted as areas of recharge and discharge that relate to some of the sites in Alberta Geological Survey report INF 143 report, but are not directly referenced. There are a few vectors in the Wainwright mapsheet which were not labeled or referenced in the report so they were omitted. The data are in ESRI shapefile format.

Data quality: Scope: Scope: Hierarchy level: Scope code: dataset Report: Absolute external positional accuracy: Name of measure: Horizontal Positional Accuracy Measure description: Evaluation method description: Accuracy of the sites visited is estimated to be better than +/-100m on the ground based on informed judgement of the effects of all combined map production errors. Result: Quantitative result: Value unit: Base unit: Identifier: Units system: xlink: http://www.bipm.org/en/si/ Value: Report: Completeness commission: Result: unknown Report: Completeness omission: Evaluation method description: All lines are areas which were visited by Dr.József Tóth during his field work. These locations were hand drawn as lines by Dr. Tóth on topographic maps. All hand-drawn data were digitized. All lines have attributes describing their relationship to the sites in the report, however, there were a few lines which were captured by Dr.Tóth on the Wainwright mapsheet, but they were not referenced in the report in any way and so were removed. The sites chosen by Dr. Tóth were areas of hydrogeologic interest which he used to assist him in deriving his "Unit Basin" theory of groundwater flow. He specifically targeted areas of interest which fell within a 100 kilometre wide regional transect parallel to the dip of the Alberta Basin. Three of the lines within this dataset are the northern and southern boundaries of the regional transect and a centerline used for maintaining directional accuracy and they are referenced as such within their attributes in this dataset and within the report. Result: unknown Report: Conceptual consistency: Measure description: Data comprise the locations of springs and groundwater discharge locations from field work. Each site was visited by Dr. Tóth and marked on a 1:250000 map as well as described in detail within INF 143. There are a few vectors which are not labeled and/or are not referenced in the INF 143 report, but were drawn on the field maps and so were retained. Vectors were georeferenced with maps and visually checked by S. Stewart. The data represent non-topological linear features. Line features may cross without intersecting (i.e. features may overlap). The regional transect lines do cross mapsheets and edgematching was performed where necessary. Result: unknown Lineage: Lineage: Statement: All lines are areas which were visited by Dr.József Tóth during his field work. These locations were hand drawn as lines by Dr. Tóth on topographic maps. All hand-drawn data were digitized.

Three of the lines within this dataset are the northern and southern boundaries of the regional transect and a centerline used for maintaining directional accuracy and they are referenced as such within their attributes in this dataset and within the report. Process step: Process step: Description: Collection of data by Dr. Tóth into field notes over 5 field seasons. Sites were visited by Dr. Tóth and were hand plotted on various 1:250000 field maps. Date and time: 1969-08-01T00:00:00 Process step: Process step: Description: Notes were typed into a report by Leanne Schlickenrieder. Data points were re-plotted on 1:250000 maps where the original map was in poor condition or missing entirely. Otherwise the original map was used for digitization. Date and time: 1996-08-14T00:00:00 Process step: Process step: Description: Line features were digitized into ARCGIS by GISmo Solutions Ltd from scanned, georeferenced versions of the 1:250000 field maps. The following process was used: 1. The original field maps were scanned at 600 dpi into a TIF format. 2. The maps were georeferenced and because of the age of the maps, a rubber-sheeting process was required. Additional references were used in the georeferencing process. These included:
                             NAD27 NTS map frame neatlines (to be displayed with NTv2 transformation)
                             NAD83 NTS map frame neatlines
                             1:250000 scanned Canamatrix maps NAD83, UTM projection
                             1:250000 hydrography information from NTDB closely resembling features of older maps
                             1:20000   Provincial hydrography information
3. The hand drawn data points, lines, and polylines were then digitized into shapefiles of points, lines and polylines. 4. To reduce the file sizes, Global Mapper was used to compress the images to 8 bit color optimized palette. 5. The files were converted from GCS North American 1927 to NAD 1983 NTv2 Canada 6. The RMS error for georeferencing of each of the maps is as follows:
                             Brazeau 27
                             Calgary 5
                             Edmonton 29
                             Golden 5
                             Rocky Mountain House 19
                             Red Deer 25
                             Vermillion 32
                             Wabamun 40
                             Wainwright 140
7. The files were checked for accuracy by AGS staff by overlaying the points, lines, and polylines on the original scanned maps. Attributes which were documented on the field maps were checked, and additional attributes were added from the field notes for the purpose of continuity between the documents so that the attributes could be mapped for future projects. Datapoints, lines or polylines which were un-referenced or otherwise unresolved were removed. Date and time: 2010-04-30T00:00:00
