Supplemental Information

The layers listed below are present as ArcGIS shape files. Attribute information for the following layers (entities) is included in this metadata file under the "Entity_and_Attribution_Information" section. Each layer is listed and described in detail under its own heading starting "Entity_Type_Label." Basic unit information is also included in the geologic unit code set file "PIR2007-1_codeset.pdf".
