Original source of contact, thrust, culture, legend, drainage and type layers is unknown. However I believe that these were created by Rothtek Co. under the direction of Jim Queen of the USGS, Reston. These are the scribe sheets (or copies) used to print the 1993 paper verion of the Geology of Arkansas. These digital scanned scribe were placed on the greenwood ftp server. Greg Green of the USGS Denver, attributed the sheets in Arc/Info. The normal faults and igneous rocks scribe sheets were not found and these were digitized by hand by Green from a liibrary copy. (expect some errors)
