Supplemental Information

The coverages included in this project are digitized from a mylar compilation of geologic field observations recorded on U.S. Geological Survey topographic base maps of the area and on aerial photos. Coverages were created using ArcMap distributed by ESRI, Inc. Metadata was compiled to meet Federal Geographic Data Committee standards. Digital hydrology and topography of the map area is included with this publication release but documented in a separate matadata file. This dataset includes 3 layers. Each layer is listed and described in the metadata under the headings "Entity_Type_Label." Layers include:
 >kavik_Q_units: polygons representing geologic units
 >kavik_Q_structure: line symbols representing structures
 >kavik_Q_contacts: line symbols representing contacts between geologic units


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.
