Description:
Abstract:
The geology of the Rosalia 1:100,000 quadrangle, Washington and Idaho was compiled and published as a paper product by the Washington Division of Geology and Earth Resources (Waggoner, 1990). The U.S. Geological Survey converted the geologic data to a digital geographic information system (GIS) format as part of a larger effort to create regional digital geology for the Pacific Northwest. 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 Rosalia 1:100,000 quadrangle for use in future spatial analysis by a variety of users.
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 (ros100k) containing geologic contacts and structures (lines) and geologic map rock units (polygons), and one point file (rospnt) containing structural data.

This digital database is not meant to be used or displayed at any scale larger than 1:100,000 (e.g., 1:62,500 or 1:24,00).
Any hardcopies utilizing these data sets shall clearly indicate their source. If the user has modified the data in any way they are obligated to describe the types of modifications they have performed on the hardcopy map. User specifically agrees not to misrepresent these data sets, nor to imply that changes they made were approved by the U.S. Geological Survey.
Data_Set_Credit:
Stephanie Z. Waggoner (1990) compiled the geology onto stable-base material;
A contractor (PacifiCad Inc., Spokane, WA) scanned the original stable-base geologic map (provided by the Washington Division of Geology and Earth Resources) and provided the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) with an uncompressed TIFF file (reverse image, scanned at 600 dots per inch);
Bruce R. Johnson (USGS) converted the image to a vector geographic information system (GIS);
Pamela D. Derkey (USGS) and Beatrice B. Lackaff edited the vector data;
Pamela D. Derkey generated a GIS file for the point data, attached and attributed an interim geologic map data model (database).
Robert E. Derkey (WA DGER) digitized the point data and provided it in an Arc/Info GENERATE format file.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Attribute accuracy was verified by manual comparison of the source with hard copy printouts and plots.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Polygon and chain-node topology present. Polygons intersecting the neatline are closed along the border. Segments making up the outer and inner boundaries of a poygon tie end-to-end to completely enclose the area. Line segments are a set of sequentially numbered coordinate 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 coordinate 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:
This digital dataset was produced from a previously published report (Waggoner, 1990), and is considered to be the best geologic map available for the area at a scale of 1:100,000.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The horizontal positional accuracy for the digital data may be no better than +/- 70 meters. It was tested by visual comparison of the source with hard copy plots.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Stable-base geologic map was scanned at 600 dots per inch by a contractor (PacifiCad, Inc., Spokane, WA) and provided to the U.S. Geological Survey as reverse TIFF-format image. The image was registered to a UTM grid and rectified in Arc/Info. Then it was converted to a vector GIS layer using the GRIDLINE vectorization tool included in the Arc/Info GRID extension. Subsequent clean-up of the vector layer was done in PC Arc/Info. Linework for water bodies that obscured geologic contacts was converted from digital line graph (DLG) format files (USGS, 1993) to PC Arc/Info so as to delineate discrete geologic unit boundaries. The resulting geologic map was attributed, converted to Arc/Info, and then plotted and compared to the original.
Point data were digitized from the original stable-base map into GSMAP, ver. 9 (Selner and Taylor, 1993) as points in a UTM zone 11 map projection (with a y-shift of -5,000,000 meters). These point data ewre output to Arc/Info GENERATE-format files using the GSMGIS utility (G.I. Selner, written commun., 1994). An Arc/Info point location map was then generated, attributed and annotated.
