Spatial Digital Database of Selected Data from the Geologic
Map of the Western Part of the Cut Bank 1° x 2° Quadrangle,
Series_Name: U.S. Geological Survey Miscellaneous Investigations Map
Publication_Place: Menlo Park, CA
Publisher: U.S. Geological Survey
The paper geologic map of the western part of the Cut Bank 1° x
2° quadrangle, northwestern Montana (Harrison and others, 1998)
was digitized and initially attributed by the Montana Bureau of
Mines and Geology (MBMG) and remitted to the U.S. Geological
Survey for further attribution and publication of the geospatial
digital files. The resulting digital geologic map GIS can be
queried in many ways to produce a variety of geological maps.
This digital geospatial database is one of many being created by
the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) as an ongoing effort to
provide geologic information in a geographic information system
(GIS) for use in spatial analysis.
This GIS dataset consists of one major ArcInfo dataset: a line
and polygon file (cb250k) that contains geologic contacts and
structures (lines) and geologic map rock units (polygons).

The Harrison and others (1998) geological map was digitized and
minimally attributed by Ken Sandau (Montana Bureau of Mines and
Geology (MBMG)) who then provided four minimally attributed
ArcInfo interchange-format files to the U.S.G.S.; Robert J.
Miller (USGS) combined the faults coverage into the contact and
rock unit coverage; and Helen Z. Kayser (contractor) attached
and attributed an interim geologic map data model.
