Karl V. Evans (USGS) compiled the geology onto scale-stable base materials At a scale of 1:100,000. Geologic Data Systems,Inc. (GDS), scanned the geologic map and provided attributed Arc/Info .e00 files to the USGS in decimal degree format. Gregory N. Green imported the files, transformed them to UTM zone 11 or zone 12 and Albers Conic Equal Area projections, and checked for errors. The files are stored in Albers Conic Equal Area projection for ease of use across the UTM zone.
This dataset was developed to provide a geologic map GIS database of Salmon National Forest, Idaho, for use in spatial analysis by a variety of users.
