Supplemental Information

This digital data distribution package provides shapefiles and geodatabase that portray features presented in RI 2017-5. Field names and values are organized according to the NCGMP09 - Draft Standard Format for Digital Publication of Geologic Maps, Version 1.1 by the USGS National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program (NCGMP). This metadata file lists the table names and field names used in the geodatabase. Table and field names in the shapefiles are truncated at 10 characters. The geodatabase and selected shapefiles provide the following features:
 >ContactsAndFaults: Line features that depict faults and geologic contacts.
 >GeochronPoints: Geochronology sample location points.
 >MapUnitPolys: Polygons that record the distribution of mapped or interpreted geologic units.
 >Stations: A point file that provides location information, observations, and other data specific to each field observation station.


Metadata is the data about the data and answers "Who, what, when, where, how and why?" about the dataset. Please see the DGGS Metadata README page for information about our metadata.
