Description:
Abstract:
This report provides digital representation of the Idaho state geologic map (Bond and Wood, 1978). This report is one in a series of digital maps, data files, and reports generated by the US Geological Survey to provide geologic process and mineral resource information to the Interior Columbia Basin Ecosystem Management (ICBEMP). The various digital maps and data files are being used in a GIS-based ecosystem assessment including an analysis of diverse questions relating to past, present, and future conditions within the general area of the Columbia River Basin east of the Cascase Mountains.
Purpose:
To provide a digital geologic map database of Idaho state to the public.

Data_Set_Credit:
Digital products such as this map would not exist without the geologic mapping of generations of geologists whose work contributed to the small-scale state geologic maps that have been published by most states. We gratefully acknowledge the work of the geologists and agencies that supported compilation of this map. Those agencies include the US Geological Survey and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. USGS geologists, Thor Kiilsgaard and Fred Miller, provided useful advice about regional geology and the identification of unlabeled features on the published state geologic maps. We particularly wish to acknowledge Patrick Geehan, the Bureau of Land Management Project coordinator for the Interior Columbia River Basin Ecosystem Management Project, for recognizing the importance of geology to ecosystem management and for supplying funds to digitize the Washington map.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The map was processed digitally, as follows: the source material was scanned, the scanned image was vectorized and topologically structured, the lines and polygons were edited and proofed, attributes were added and proofed, the map was transformed from scanner units to geographic coordinate, and finally, map distortions were removed by rubber-sheeting. The initial objective was to obtain a digital representation that, when plotted, would overlay the source material within a line width; the digital version of the map meets this test.
