Fred Fisher, Dave McIntyre and Kate Johnson (all USGS) compiled the geology onto stable-base material at a 1:250,000. That version was published as USGS publication MAP I-1819. TechniGraphic System, Inc. of Fort Collins Colorado digitized that map for the USGS in 1999 under contract for N.Shock (USGS). G.Green (USGS) edited and prepared for digital release the Challis digital version as a geographic information system database. The digital geologic map database can be queried in many ways to produce a variety of geologic maps. The files are stored in the following projection - UTM, meters, zone 11, NAD27, Clarke 1866.
This dataset was developed to provide a geologic map GIS database of Challis 1°x2° Quadrangle, Idaho for use in spatial analysis.
