Digital geologic map and database of the Frederick 30 X 60 minute quadrangle, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia

Online link https://geo-nsdi.er.usgs.gov/metadata/open-file/02-437/metadata.faq.html
Description The geology of the Frederick 30 by 60 minute quadrangle, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia, was mapped on 1:24,000-scale base maps from 1989 to 1994. The geologic data were manually compiled at 1:100,000-scale in 1997 and were digitized and converted
