Abstract:
The digital map database, compiled from previously published and unpublished data, and new mapping by the authors, represents the general distribution of bedrock and surficial deposits in the House Rock Spring area. Together with the accompanying text, it provides current information on the geologic structure and stratigraphy of the area covered. The database delineates map units that are identified by general age, lithology, and geomorphology following the spatial resolution (scale) of the database to 1:24,000. The content and character of the database, as well as three methods of obtaining the database, are described below. This digital map database is compiled from unpublished data and new mapping by the authors, represents the general distribution of surficial and bedrock geology in the mapped area.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 delineate 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 1:24,000 or smaller. This report consists of a set of geologic map database files (ARC/ INFO coverages) and supporting text and plot files. In addition, the report includes two sets of plot files(Post Script and PDF format) that will generate map sheets and pamphlets similar to a traditional USGS Miscellaneous Field Studies Report. These files are described in the explanatory pamphlets (hrsgeo.doc, hrsgeo. pdf, or hrsgeo.txt). The base layer used in the preparation of the geologic map plot files was derived from a Digital Raster Graphic version of a standard USGS 7.5' quadrangle. This raster image was converted to Grid format in ARC/INFO, trimmed and converted to a GeoTIFF image. The resultant TIFF image was combined with geologic data to produce the final map image in Illustrator 8.0.

Access_Constraints: None.
Use_Constraints:
Uses of this digital geologic map should not violate the spatial resolution of the map area (1:24,000) even though the digital data form removes the constraint of scale on a paper map. The accuracy inherent in map scale are also present in digital format. At a scale larger than 1:24,000, higher resolution data is not available and will not yield greater real detail.
