MAPS Ancillary Description
Access Constraints None.
Use Constraints Uses of this digital geologic map should not violate the spatial
resolution of the map area (1:31,680) 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 1:31,680, higher resolution data is not available and
will not yield greater real detail.
