Description:
Abstract:
The digital geologic map of the Coeur d'Alene 1:100,000 quadrangle was compiled from preliminary digital datasets [Athol, Coeur d'Alene, Kellogg, Kingston, Lakeview, Lane, and Spirit Lake 15-minute quadrangles] prepared by the Idaho Geological Survey from A. B. Griggs (unpublished field maps), supplemented by Griggs (1973) and by digital data from Bookstrom and others (1999) and Derkey and others (1996). The digital geologic map database can be queried in many ways to produce a variety of derivative geologic maps.
Purpose:
This dataset was developed to provide geologic map GIS of the Coeur d'Alene 1:100,000 quadrangle for use in future spatial analysis by a variety of users. These data can be printed in a variety of ways to display various geologic features or used for digital analysis and modeling. This database is not meant to be used or displayed at any scale larger than 1:100,000 (e.g. 1:62,500 or 1:24,000).
Supplemental_Information:
This GIS consists of two major Arc/Info datasets: one line and polygon file (cda100k) containing geologic contacts and structures (lines) and geologic map rock units (polygons), and one point file (cda100kp) containing structural data.

Data_Set_Credit:
Allan B. Griggs (1973) mapped the Spokane quadrangle (1:250,000) from which the northeast corner 15-minute map segment was digitized; the Idaho Geological Survey provided digital geologic data coverage for the seven other 15-minute quadrangles used to prepare this composite map; Pamela D. Derkey and Robert J. Miller (both of the USGS) provided technical assistance with the geologic systems data model, metadata, digital documentation, and map projections; Steven R. Munts (contractor) digitized new linework, edited digital files, combined existing data sets, built look-up tables, and prepared the composite data set.
Native_Data_Set_Environment:
SunOS, 5.7, sun4u UNIX ARC/INFO version 7.2.1

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Attribute accuracy was verified by manual comparision of the source with hard copy printouts, plots, and on-screen evaluation.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Polygon and chain-node topology present. Segments making up the outer and inner boundaries of a polygon tie end-to-end to completely enclose the area. Line segments are a set of sequentially numbered coordiante pairs. No duplicate features exist nor duplicate points in a data string. Intersecting lines are separated into individual line segments at the point of intersection. Point data are represented by two sets of coordinate pairs, each with the same coordiante values. All nodes are represented by a single coordinate pair which indicates the beginning or end of a line segment. The neatline was generated by mathematically generating the four sides of the quadrangle, densifying the lines of latitude and projecting the file to UTM zone 11 (with a y-shift).
Completeness_Report:
All geologic units were compiled from previously existing maps ranging in scale from 1:24,000 to 1:250,000.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The horizontal position accuracy for the digital data is no better than 13 meters based on the digitizing RMS error.

This source provided digital geology for the southeast part of the Coeur d'Alene 1:100,000 quadrangle.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Preliminary digital geologic map information for seven 15-minute quadrangles obtained from the Idaho Geological Survey were compiled electronically into a single topologically correct coverage by R. J. Miller (USGS) using ARC/INFO ver. 7.2.1 on a Sun Unix system.
S. R. Munts digitized the northeast corner part of Griggs's (1973) map plate on an Altek digitizing tablet (RMS input error = 0.002 [13 meters]) and incorporated the data into the Coeur d'Alene GIS.
S. R. Munts projected the Coeur d'Alene GIS to UTM zone 11 (meters) and attributed it with an interim geologic data model.
Digital data from Bookstrom and others (1999) was generalized and inserted into the Coeur d'Alene GIS to replace Griggs' unpublished field map data.
Digital data from Derkey and others (1996) was inserted into the southeast part of the Coeur d'Alene 1:100,000 quadrangle.
