Abstract:
Spatial Geologic Data Model for the Gunnison, Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre National Forests Mineral Resource Assessment Area, Southwestern Colorado and Arc/Info versions of the Leadville, Durangeo and Montrose 2 degree quadrangles as well as the Colorado half of the Grand Junction, Moab and Cortez 2 degree quadrangles.
Purpose:
This dataset was developed to provide a geologic map GIS database of Leadville, Durangeo, and Montrose quadrangles as well as the eastern half of the Grand Junction, Moab and Cortez 2 degree quadrangles Colorado for use in spatial analysis for the Gunnison, Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre National Forests Mineral Resource Assessment Area, Southwestern Colorado.
