D.M. Hirschberg (contractor), G.S. Pitts (contractor), and K.S. Bolm (USGS), scanned Dickinson's (1992) geologic map; registered the resulting image; digitized the arcs and points; captured and positioned the annotation, attributed the arcs, polygons, and points; defined and populated the look-up tables; prepared the data model; wrote the metadata; and produced the Open-File Report text. See the Process_Step sections for more details on these steps.
This database was constructed to provide a geologic map GIS for use in spatial analysis by a variety of users. The digital geologic database can be queried in many ways to produce a variety of derivative geologic maps. The data are not meant to be used at any scale larger than 1:125,000 (for example, 1:100,000 or 1:24,000)
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
