Karen S. Bolm and Tasha Lewis digitized these data from scans of the Dickinson (1993, 1998, 2000) maps made by G. Stephen Pitts. Douglas M. Hirschberg provided programs to aid in attribution of the data, and William R. Dickinson provided attribute information, assisted in the editing, and resolved problems resulting from the combination of three maps.
This dataset was developed to provide geologic map GIS of the Quiburis Formation for use in future spatial analysis by a variety of users. These data can be printed in a variety of ways to display various geologic features or used for digital analysis and modeling. It was digitized from 1:24,000-scale maps. The digital database is not meant to be used or displayed at any scale larger than 1:24,000 (for example, 1:12,000).
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
