A new database system was developed to maintain, update, and manage province-wide lithogeochemical data collected by British Columbia Geological Survey (BCGS) geoscientists and their research partners. The database, released as BCGS GeoFile 2016-04, is populated with data compiled from 214 BCGS publications released between 1986 and 2015. It includes 10,914 samples with about 250,000 determinations analyzed by 26 analytical methods in 21 laboratories. The database operates through a semi-automated process for data compilation, quality control, upload, and product generation, which helps provide consistent, standardized, and long-term data storage and update, and regular release. The data product derived from the database provided in this release is in a user-friendly format (CVS), which can be easily brought into GIS and geochemical data evaluation software for visualization and analysis.
