Summary
Abstract: The digitally compiled map includes geology, oil and gas field centerpoints,
and geologic provinces of the Arctic (North Pole area encircled by 640 N
Latitude). The GIS data sets were designed originally in ESRI's ARC/INFO ver.
8.0.1 and were published as part of a series of interim CD-ROM products of the
U.S. Geological Survey's World Energy Project (WEP). The goal of the WEP is to
assess the undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources of the
world. Results of this assessment were reported in the year 2000 (see USGS
DDS-60; http://pubs.usgs.gov/dds/dds-060/).

Quality Overall accuracy is based on accuracy of general geology coverage. Because all
the attributes are of character type, only correctness of polygon labeling can
be provided (see below). 1. Attribute items "AGE_OR", "LI_TYPE" are abstracted
from fill colors and patterns of source map denoting geologic age. Offshore and
onshore units are attributed ... View entire text
