DATABASE STRUCTURE  -- ArcInfo and ArcView ==========
There are three coverages (root name = pueb) and three additional info files.
This GIS database includes related look-up tables, which store detailed attribute information.  Arc/Info relates for each coverage are saved in a file named covername.rel.  Use the RELATE command with the restore argument at the arc prompt to make the relates active.  Alternatively, in Arctools, use the Relate environment:  open dialog in the Manage - Relates flyout menu under the Arctools menu to make the relates active.
puebpoly coverage: contains all contact lines and labelpoints for each geologic polygon.  In the puebpoly.pat INFO file the LABEL item indicates the rock unit label (abbreviation) used to label the unit on the map.  The DESC item contains the formal or informal unit name.  The SOURCE item contains the numeric code used to identify the data source for the rock unit.  The SYMBOL item contains the shadeset symbol number used by ArcInfo to plot a filled/shaded polygon.  The symbol numbers in this coverage refer to the color524.shd shadeset.
In the coverage's puebpoly.aat INFO file the NAME item contains the name given to the line feature.  The SOURCE item contains the numeric code used to identify the data source for the line feature.  The SYMBOL item contains the lineset symbol number used by ArcInfo to plot a line.  The symbol numbers in this coverage refer to the geol_sfo.lin lineset.
In the coverage's puebpoly.ref INFO file the SOURCE item lists the numeric code used to identify the data source.  The scale item lists the scale of the source map.  (This value is the denominator of the proportional fraction that identifies the scale of the map that was digitized or scanned to produce the digital map.)  The AUTHORS item lists the author(s) or compiler(s) of source map entered as last name, first name or initial, and middle initial.  The YEAR item lists the source (map) publication date.  The REFERENCE item lists the remainder of the reference in USGS reference format.
The INFO structure of these files is listed below:

puebpnt coverage:  Contains points recording locations of bar-and-ball symbols. In the puebpnt.pat INFO file the PTTYPE item lists the type of point symbol, e.g., bar-and-ball. The SYMBOL item lists the marker symbol used by ArcInfo to identify the type of structural map symbol.  Symbol numbers refer to symbols in the geoscamp2.mrk markerset.  ).  The STRIKE item contains the azimuthal value of any point symbol as well as strike of bedding, and trend of fold axis, where applicable.  Strike is an azimuthal angle.  Measured in degrees from 0 to 360 in a clockwise direction from North, the STRIKE value also specifies the dip direction, where the dip direction is 90 degrees clockwise relative to the STRIKE.  The DIP item contains the dip of bedding as well as plunge angles, where applicable.  This value is an angle measured (in degrees 0 to 90) down from the horizontal; thus a horizontal dip is 0 degrees and a vertical dip is 90 degrees.  The SOURCE item lists the numeric code used to identify the data source.
In the coverage's puebpnt.ref INFO file the SOURCE item lists the numeric code used to identify the data source.  The scale item lists the scale of the source map.  (This value is the denominator of the proportional fraction that identifies the scale of the map that was digitized or scanned to produce the digital map.)  The AUTHORS item lists the author(s) or compiler(s) of source map entered as last name, first name or initial, and middle initial.  The YEAR item lists the source (map) publication date.  The REFERENCE item lists the remainder of the reference in USGS reference format.
