Digital geologic map of Spokane County and vicinity, Washington
Edition: version 1.0
Series_Name: U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report
Publication_Place: Spokane WA
Publisher: U.S. Geological Survey
The geology of Spokane County and vicinity, Washington and Idaho was
compiled from Carrara and others (1995), Joseph (1990), Kiver and
others (1979), Miller (written communication, 1995), and Waggoner
(1990a, b) for input into an Arc/Info geographic information system
(GIS). The digital geologic map database can be queried in many ways
to produce a variety of derivative geologic maps.
This dataset was developed to provide a geologic map GIS of Spokane
County for use in future spatial analysis by a variety of users.
These data will better enable Spokane County agencies to predict the
likely occurrence of additional mineral lands, primarily containing
sand, gravel, rock and clay deposits.
This database is not meant to be used or displayed at any scale
larger than 1:100,000 (e.g., 1:62,500 or 1:24,000).
This GIS consists of four major Arc/Info datasets: one line and
polygon file (spokco) containing geologic contacts and structures
(lines) and geologic map rock units (polygons), and three point files
(spcopnt1, spcopnt2, and spcopnt3) containing structural point data.
