This product would not exist without the input of the many geoscientists whose work has previously been compiled to create datasets of geothermal water information. Those agencies include the US Geological Survey, the US Department of Energy, the California Division of Mines and Geology, the Idaho Geological Survey, the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology, the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, the Utah Geological and Mineral Survey, the Geological Survey of Wyoming, and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. We particularly acknowledge Patrick Geehan, the Bureau of Land Management project coordinator for the Interior Columbia River Basin Ecosystem Management Project, for recognizing the importance of geology to ecosystem management and for supplying funds to digitize the Washington, Idaho, and Montana state geologic maps.
To provide to the public a digital geologic map database of the possible bat habitats for the Pacific Northwest.
