DATABASE STRUCTURE - ARC/INFO ====================================
The database of the map consists of four coverages (root name =
sgm), including corresponding INFO files:
sgmpoly coverage:  Contains all contact lines and labelpoints for
each polygon. In the coverage's sgmpoly.aat INFO file the CODE item
provides a numeric code that specifies the geologic identity and
positional quality of each contact line (e.g., fault, approximately
located), and the P1 and P2 items are relic cartographic parameters
from the GSMCAD compilation program. The sgmpoly.aat CODE values are
defined below. In the sgmpoly.pat INFO file the CODE and P2 items
are relic cartographic parameters from the GSMCAD program, the P1
item provides a numeric code that specifies the polygon's map unit
identity, the TEXT item indicates the map unit label for each
polygon, and the SYMBOL item defines the polygon color as chosen
from the color524.shd shadeset (included in bundled file archive).
The sgmpoly.pat P1 and TEXT items are listed below.
sgmline coverage:  Contains faults, fold axis, and other non-contact
lines.  Faults that are contacts also appear in the sgmpoly
coverage. In the sgmline.aat INFO file the CODE item provides a
numeric code that specifies the geologic identity and positional
quality for each type of line, the P1 and P2 items are relic
cartographic parameters from the GSMCAD program, and the TEXT item
describes the geologic identity, positional quality, and, in some
cases, additional aspects of each line. The sgmline.aat CODE and
TEXT items are listed below.
sgmpoint coverage:  Contains points recording site-specific
observations and measurements, such as strike and dip of bedding. In
the sgmpoint.pat INFO file the CODE item provides a numeric code
that specifies the type of point observation, the P1 and P2 items
indicate the associated strike azimuth (or trend) and dip (or
plunge), respectively, and the TEXT item describes the type of point
observation. (In the case of bedding attiudes the P1 strike azimuths
are always 90 deg. counterclockwise from the associated dip
directions.)  The sgmpoint.pat CODE and TEXT items are listed below.
sgmdec coverage: Contains points used for cartographically
decorating lines, such as "ball-and-bar" fault symbols, as well as a
repeat of points in the sgmpoint coverage recording site-specific
observations and measurements.  Such point data provide additional
qualitative information mainly for line features representing faults
and folds, such as sense of fault displacement or fold type.  In the
INFO file sgmdec.pat the CODE item defines a numeric code for each
type of point decoration and the P1 and P2 items indicate the
orientation (or strike azimuth) and, where appropriate, dip (or
plunge) value associated with each point symbol. The sgmdec.pat CODE
items are listed below.
Auxiliary files:
color524.shd:  This shadeset file defines the rgb values of colors
assigned to polygons in the sgmpoly coverage (see SYMBOL item).
