Description:
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/). [Summary provided by the USGS.]

Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
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 separately and can be displayed selectively by "POS" item. 2. Rigorous verification and comparison of geologic attributes with other paper and digital maps were carried out on Canadian and Alaskan parts of the map. 3. Standard verification of attribute reliability was performed with the Arc/Info command LABELERRORS to find polygons without assigned character value or with more than one value. A comparison between color plot and original paper map was carried out by on-screen visual examination. The coverages were superimposed on a registered and rectified gray-scale scanned image of the original map and inspected. All evident errors detected in attributes were corrected. 4. Two attribute items have been added: ERROR and CHECK. The first stands for evident error on original paper map, the second one - geologic attribute was assigned with level of uncertainty (color and pattern do not coincide).
