Bedrock river and fault orientations in the Fraser Canyon, British Columbia, Canada

Description: This file contains data used in the Curran et al. (2023) "Structural control of bedrock river alignment and morphology in the Fraser Canyon, British Columbia, Canada." It includes CSV files of orientation of 10-meter segments of the Fraser River centerline and orientation of 1-kilometer segments of faults and lineaments, which are a combination of published data from the BC Digital Geologic Map and newly mapped features identified in satellite and lidar data. Figures 4-6, & 8 are derived from these datasets. Also contains one CSV file of canyon classifications and underlying canyon morphology measurements from Rennie et al. (2018) used to create Figure 10.
