Overview of attributes

The data files were generated using ArcInfo, consequently they
contain a number of fields that are created and maintained
specifically for that software package.  The actual field

POLYGONGONAL FEATURES OF THE GEOLOGIC DATA

Geologic units and other land-cover polygonal features.

Label Definition
SYMBOL Integer index of the fill color for this polygon. The index indicates an element of the shade set color524.shd.
LABEL Map unit label. This is a character field of width 17. The typeface used is fnt027, included with this package. Some geologic map units are labeled using symbols that are not represented in standard type faces, such as the symbols for the Cambrian, Pennsylvanian, and Triassic periods. The font fnt027, included with the ArcInfo export files in this database package, is used to draw these symbols.
TEXT Map-unit label expressed in the nearest ASCII equivalent of the unit label that is actually shown on the printed map sheet. Some geologic unit labels contain symbols that cannot be represented using ASCII, such as the symbols for the Cambrian, Pennsylvanian, and Triassic periods. The proper symbols are contained within the font file fnt027.
DESCRIPTION Short textual description of the map unit. Complete descriptions of the map units are normally provided in an accompanying report. This description is typically shown on the legend printed on the map sheet.

LINEAR FEATURES OF THE GEOLOGIC DATA

Linear geologic features bounding geologic unit polygons, chiefly contacts and faults.

Label Definition
DESCRIPTION Text indicating the type of linear geologic feature.
SYMBOL Integer index of the line type used for plotting the feature on the map. The line type is given by the symbol set (whose name is specified in an accompanying attribute) and this index value.
SYMSET Name of the symbol set containing the appropriate line style to be used for plotting this feature.

FEATURES OF THE GEOLOGIC LINE DATA

Linear geologic features, chiefly fold axes, moraine crest lines, and lines of cross section, that do not bound the geologic unit polygons.

Label Definition
DESCRIPTION Text indicating the type of linear geologic feature.
SYMBOL Integer index of the line type used for plotting the feature on the map. The line type is given by the symbol set (whose name is specified in an accompanying attribute) and this index value.
SYMSET Name of the symbol set containing the appropriate line style to be used for plotting this feature.

FEATURES OF THE GEOLOGIC POINT DATA

Point geologic features of all types, including observations and measurements of geologic structure, geodetic control points, mineral and fossil occurrences, small geologic structures, and relevant manmade features.

Label Definition
DESCRIPTION Text indicating the type of geologic point feature.
SYMBOL Integer index of the point type used for plotting the feature on the map. The point type is given by the symbol set (whose name is specified in an accompanying attribute) and this index value.
SYMSET Name of the symbol set containing the appropriate symbol to be used for plotting this feature.
