Summary
Abstract: The geologic map of Hidden Hills and vicinity covers part of the Arizona Strip
north of Grand Canyon and several large tributary canyons that make up the
western part of Arizona's Grand Canyon. The map is part of a cooperative U.S.
Geological Survey, National Park Service, and Bureau of Land Management project
to provide geologic information for areas within the newly established Grand
Canyon-Parashant National Monument. This map fills in one of the remaining
areas where uniform quality geologic mapping was needed. The geologic
information will be useful for future resource management studies for federal,
state, and private agencies.

This digital map database is compiled from unpublished data and new mapping by
the authors and represents the general distribution of surficial and bedrock
geology in the mapped area. Together with the accompanying pamphlet, it
provides current information on the geologic structure and stratigraphy of the
area. The database delineates map units that are identified by age and
lithology following the stratigraphic nomenclature of the U.S. Geological
Survey. The scale of the source maps limits the spatial resolution of the
database to 1:31,680 or smaller.

Use Constraints
Uses of this digital geologic map should not violate the spatial resolution of
the map area (1:31,680) even though the digital data form removes the
constraint of scale on a paper map. The accuracy inherent in map scale is also
present in digital format. At a scale larger than 1:31,680, higher resolution
data is not available and will not yield greater real detail. Any hard copies
utilizing these datasets shall clearly indicate their source. If users modify
the data in any way they are obligated to describe the types of modifications
they have performed. User specifically agrees not to misrepresent these
datasets, nor to imply that changes they made were approved by the U.S.
Geological Survey.
