Supplemental Information

The layers listed below are present as ArcGIS shape files. To enhance print quality, this publication utilized a vector topography dataset. The topography dataset is included with this release but is documented in a separate metadata file named, "PIR2002-2_topo.faq.html." 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 "PIR2002-2_codeset.pdf". Layers include:
 >bedrock_arc: geologic unit contacts
 >bedrock_poly: geologic unit polygons
 >kc_chrt_point: point locations of Buchia limestone coquina and Imnaitchiak Chert boulders
 >motion_point: symbols showing relative motion and/or orientation of structural elements
 >qal_af_poly: polygons indicating location of aufeis
 >strike_dip_point: point locations of bedding and foliation orientation data
 >structure_arc: line symbols depicting the location of traceable beds, faults, and axial traces of folds
