The GIS includes a geologic linework arc attribute table, pnf100k.aat, that relates to the pnf100k.con (contact look-up table), pnf100k.str (structure look-up table), pnf100k.lgu (linear geologic unit look-up table) and pnf100k.ref (descriptive source or reference data) files; a rock unit polygon attribute table, pnf100k.pat, that relates to the pnf100k.ru (rock unit look-up table) and pnf100k.ref (descriptive source or reference files); a shear zone polygon attribute table, pnfshear.pat, that relates to the pnfshear.zon (shear zone look-up table) and pnshear.ref (descriptivesource or reference data) files; and two geologic map symbol point attribute tables, pnfpnt1.pat and pnfpnt2.pat, that relate to the pnfpnt*.sym (structural point data look-up tables) and pnfpnt*.ref (descriptive source or reference data) files.
