We acknowledge the work of these geologists and the agencies that supported the previously compiled state geologic maps. Those agencies include the US Geological Survey and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. USGS geologists, Thor Kiilsgaard and Fred Miller, provided useful advice about regoinal geology and the identification of unlabeled features on the published state geologic maps. 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 map.
To provide to the public a digital geologic map database of Washington State.
