[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: A digital geologic map of Arizona is now available from the Arizona
Geological Survey. This data represents a digitized version of the
1:1,000,000 geologic map of Arizona [Reynolds, 1988]. The map in an Adobe
Illustrator 1.1 compatible TEXT or ASCII file (for MacIntosh and other
systems respectively). Each file is a Postcript* level 2 program
describing a graphic image. The geologic map has been broken into 47
files, one for each rock unit, one that includes all the linework (except
faults), one that includes the faults and one that represents the outline
of the state. Each rock unit is assigned a separate cyan-magenta-yellow
color specification, but the colors do not necessarily correspond to those
on the published 1:1,000,000 map [Reynolds, 1988]. Some reassignemnt of
rock units has been made based on new data obtained since the Reynolds
[1988] map was compiled.
