Thériault, R. (2012) - DV 2012-06.

You can use this free Web application to locate and view a wealth of geological and mining data for Québec (geological units, mineral deposits, diamond drilling, mines and projects, etc.) and link it to mining (mining operations, claims) and geographical (satellite images, hydrography, topography, etc.) information.

Features include rapid display, powerful zoom, selection, transparency of information layers, data queries, plus the ability to print the map obtained. This easy-to-use application makes geological, mining, and geographical data more user-friendly and accessible. Another significant advantage of the interactive map is that it allows access to data in real time, that is, to continuously updated information. This is a particularly strategic factor for some users.

It should also be noted that the interactive map was tested in multiple browsers: Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 3+, Chrome 16+ and Opera 10+.
