Surficial Geology Polygons for Mount Desert Island, Maine
Entry ID: coa_surficialgeology

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Surficial geology polygons for Mount Desert Island. Coded for
surficial materials with a text description.

The data was developed for planning and ecological research and to
interact with other spatial data.

Digitized maps and cleaned-up linework using PC Arc/Info. Encoded
polygons using PC Arc/Info. Produced scaled proof plots of the data
and overlayed them on top of the original maps to validate polygons
and attribute values.

This information was obtained from Federal Geographic Committee
metadata produced by Gordon Longsworth of the College of the Atlantic
and put into Nasa Directory Interchange Format by Cheryl Solomon.

Quality
Scaled proof plots were produced with linework and field symbols. Plot
was overlayed on original map and checked on light table. Data
visually inspected in ArcView using DESCR field to build view legend.


Access Constraints
None


Use Constraints
Due to the nature of geolgical data and its interpretation, polygons
are general delineations only. This data is in no way specific enough
to infer geology of specific land parcels near rock type boundaries.
Distributed for educational and planning purposes, use at your own
risk.
