Description This digital geologic map compilation presents new polygon (i.e., geologic map unit contacts), line (i.e., fault, fold axis, and structure contour), and point (i.e., structural attitude, contact elevations) vector data for the Jasper 7 1/2' quadrangle in

Overview of attributes

The complete geologic map database comprises four
component ArcINFO coverages (jsp24k, jsppnt, jspcontrol,
and jspcontour).  The jsp24k coverage contains all contact
lines and label points for each of the map polygons. The
jsppnt coverage includes point data that represents bedding
attitude and descriptive symbology for the jsp24k coverage
fault lines.  The jspcontrol coverage contains point data
that represents elevation control points used by the geologist
during field mapping.  The jspcontour coverage contains
elevations of the base of the Boone Formation.
