Description:
Abstract:
This report describes the contents of a digital dataset which consists of four ARC/INFO Export format files. The dataset includes a digital representation of the Montana state geologic map.
Purpose:
To provide to the public a digital geologic map database of the Montana state geologic map.
Supplemental_Information:
It appears that the geology coverages wmtgeol and emtgeol were fitted to a standard state boundary using the rubber-sheet method while the arc coverages wmtarcs and emtarcs either were not or were fitted somewhat differently. Consequently the geographic correspondence between arcs and geologic unit boundaries is more faithful away from the map's edges, and near the state boundary arcs appear to be displaced relative to geologic unit contacts.

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. 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_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.
