Description:
Abstract:
The geology of western and northern Gallatin National Forest was mapped in two parts as part of an evaluation of its mineral resource potential by the USGS. Previously, the western part was released as Map A and the northern part as Map B of USGS Geologic Investigations Series Map I-2584. These maps were compiled, digitized, and produced using the USGS software program GSMAP. All the original source maps were simplified on mylar overlays, digitized at their original map scales and projections, and then merged into the final maps. After editing, the digital maps were filtered to remove all points not necessary for improving resolution at a scale of 1:126,720 (2 mi per in., the scale used by the USDA Forest Service). For purposes of resource assessment, many rock units have been combined on these maps. For details, the user should consult the original source maps.
Purpose:
This ARC/INFO dataset was developed to provide a geologic map GIS database of the northern parts (Map B) of the Gallatin National Forest for use in spatial analysis by a variety of users.

Process_Description:
The original GSMAP/GSMCAD files used to create Map B of USGS Geologic Investigations Series Map I-2584 were exported through GSMCAD to DXF format. G.N. Green converted the files to ARC/INFO format, reattributed the digital linework and polygons in ARC/INFO, checked the line and polygon attributes against the original and corrected them to match the published paper map. Shadeset and lineset attributes were added in ARC. This ARC database was further edited by G.N. Green to correct minor deviations from the published map. The digital database was quality checked against original materials by Anna Wilson, Bradley Van Gosen, and Melissa Crane.
