Abstract:
The data in this CD-ROM are based on a mineral resource assessment of the Venezuelan Guayana Shield, conducted between 1987 and 1991 by the U.S. Geological Survey and Corporacin Venezolana de Guayana, Tcnica Minera, (USGS, 1993). The Venezuelan Shield occupies about 415,000 sq km in the south and east part of Venezuela. The study area is bounded on the north by the Ro Orinoco. It includes all of the Territorio Federal Amazonas, Estado Bolvar, and part of Estado Delta Amacuro. The original resource assessment publication USGS Bulletin 2062 consists of 121 pages of text and figures as well as eight full-color maps:
Geographic Geologic and tectonic Bouguer gravity Two mineral-occurrence maps Side-looking airborne radar image Two permissive domain maps
The side-looking airborne radar image and the Bouguer gravity map are not included in this CD-ROM. The geology layer from the 1993 Bulletin was revised and published as a series of MF and I maps
Purpose:
Conversion of the Venezuela maps to a computerized digital format was undertaken for the following reasons:
1) The digital format facilitates the presentation and analysis of earth-science data. Digital maps can be displayed at any scale or projection, whereas a paper map has a fixed scale and projection. However, the maps on this disc are not intended to be used at any scale more detailed than 1:500,000.
A geographic information system (GIS) allows combining and overlaying of layers for analysis of spatial relations not readily apparent in the standard paper publication. Digital data on geology, geophysics, and geochemistry can be combined to create useful derivative products.
2) The digital format was used to facilitate publication in both paper and electronic form. For the Ro Caura paper map publication (Brooks and others, 1995), digital images were sent to the Gerber plotter, a vector-to-film processor. The other 1:500,000-scale MF maps were reproduced photographically from electrostatic plotter output on clear mylar. The published digital formats include this CD-ROM and ARC/INFO Export files to be located on the World Wide Web on the Internet.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The geologic map is primarily a bedrock map, which depicts geologic materials present beneath the soil or relatively thin mantles of surficial deposits, not necessarily the surficial materials themselves. Indeed, the study area contains so much surficial cover and standing water that much of the mapping was accomplished with geophysical methods as opposed to directly examining rock outcrops.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The coverages for the individual quadrangles have the same features as the combined coverage. The only differences are in some of the file names. For instance, the place names and city points in the individual quadrangles are stored in files called "*anno5.e00" as opposed to "places.e00" for the combined coverage.
Completeness_Report:
The "quadrangle" maps in this publication cover somewhat more or less than 2x3 depending on the specific map. For instance, the Guri map (Cox and others, 1993) contains all of the Guri quadrangle and the southern part of the Tucupita quadrangle. The entire study area in the southeast part of Venezuela, known as the Venezuelan Guayana Shield, is about 36 inches tall at 1:1 million scale, which is the published scale for Bulletin 2062 (USGS and Corporacin Venezolana de Guayana, Tcnica Minera, C.A., 1993).

The geologic map and mineral deposit maps were scanned from Bulletin 2062.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The linework for all the quadrangles was originally digitized by Jeff Wynn with GSMAP (Selner and Taylor, 1987), a USGS-authored map editing and publishing program. Conversion from GSMAP to ARC/INFO was accomplished with GSMARC (Green and Selner, 1988). The three northern quadrangles were later re-scanned on an Tektronix 4991 autovectorizing drum scanner by Paul Schruben from the geologists' revised drawings. The arcs and polygons were tagged in ARC/INFO and the oriented point symbols such as bedding and joint symbols were created with Alacarte (Wentworth and Fitzgibbon, 1991).

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
These files are compatible with ArcView 1 and ARC/INFO Version 6.1.2 or later. The files are contained in 11 directories. Ten of those directories contain coverages for the individual quadrangle publications. The eleventh directory, "vz", contains the same information but in the form of a combined map with all the quadrangles tiled together into a single coverage.
The coverages for the individual quadrangles have the same features as the combined coverage. The only differences are in some of the file names. For instance, the place names and city points in the individual quadrangles are stored in files called "*anno5.e00" as opposed to "places.e00" for the combined coverage.
