This data set features bedrock geology polygons for Mount Desert
Island. Coded with rock units and text description.
It 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.

Due to the nature of geological 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.
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.
