Description:
Abstract:
These digital maps are a reformulation of previously published maps, primarily maps of states. The reformulation gives all the maps the same structure and format, allowing them to be combined into regional maps. The associated data tables have information about age and lithology of the map units, also in a standard format.
Purpose:
Provide digital maps and databases that, because of their common structure and format, allow creation of regional maps that depict age and lithology of map units.
Supplemental_Information:
The data is provided in decimal degrees and in Lambert Conformal Conic projection. The data is provided in both coverage and shapefile format, and includes supplemental attribute tables. No attempt was made to reconcile differences in mapping across state boundaries.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Map unit designations follow original compilation faithfully. Additional information about age and lithology was obtained from the paper map legend and geologic literature.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
All internal polygons were checked for closure. Overshoots and undershoots have been deleted or corrected as appropriate.
Completeness_Report:
The dataset contains all the map units and faults that were portrayed on the original printed map. Bodies of water are classified as water, and geologic units underlying them are not portrayed.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The geologic map was digitized from compilations ranging in scale from 1:100,000 to 1:1,000,000, and is an accurate representation of the source maps. It is intended to be used at scales equal to or smaller than 1:500,000. Display at significantly larger scales may produce error in location of contacts or faults relative to features contained in other data sets. The state boundary arcs are based on the 1:100,000 scale USGS topographic map series digital line graphs. Many water boundaries do not correspond closely to other datasets.

Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data

Source_Citation_Abbreviation: US001
Source_Contribution: Provided linework for state boundaries
Process_Step:
Process_Description: Dataset copied.
Process_Date: 2002
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Adjusted the perimeter of the coverage to match a reference dataset of state boundaries derived from 1:100,000 scale digital line graphs. This allows the map to be used together with adjoining state maps referenced to the same boundary data. Replaced a section of the state boundary that follows the Colorado River with a line from 1:100,000 scale digital line graph hydrographic files. The state and international boundaries have a source of US001 in the AAT.
Process_Date: 2004
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Relabeled 8 polygons to conform to the printed map. These adjustments have a source of CA202 in the PAT.
Process_Date: 2003
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
During rectification of arc errors, created 9 new polygons to conform to the printed map. These adjustments have a source of CA901 in the PAT.
Process_Date: 2003
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Nine arcs were either added or extended to conform to the printed map's polygon representation. These adjustments have a source of CA801 in the AAT.
Process_Date: 2003
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
A number of faults on the printed map have small breaks that were originally coded as scratch boundaries. We concluded that these breaks were meant to imply approximate location, and so have changed the label on 281 arcs to reflect that interpretation. These adjustments have a source of CA802 in the AAT.
Process_Date: 2003
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
A number of arcs were present, coded as contacts or scratch boundaries that unnecessarily divided two polygons with the same label. These arcs were eliminated and the corresponding polygons consolidated.
Process_Date: 2003
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The appropriate arcs were recoded as state and international boundaries.
Process_Date: 2005
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
To prepare a uniform AAT file, the following items were added: arc-code, arc-para1, and arc-para2. The last two are not used. Arc-code was populated, using the information in the original item, and inspection of the printed map. Then the original items in the AAT were deleted (LTYPE, SEL, SYMB).
Process_Date: 2005
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
To prepare a uniform PAT file, the following items were added: ORIG_LABEL, SGMC_LABEL, UNIT_LINK, SOURCE, UNIT_AGE, ROCKTYPE1, and ROCKTYPE2. ORIG_LABEL was populated from the original item (PTYPE). New unit designations for SGMC_LABEL were developed by Paul Stone, David Miller, and Steve Ludington, based on the geologic literature, personal communications, and personal knowledge. UNIT_LINK was populated with information in the accompanying attribute table CAunits, UNIT_AGE was populated with information in the accompanying attribute table CAage, and ROCKTYPE1 and ROCKTYPE2 were populated with information in the accompanying attribute table CAlith. Then the original items in the PAT were deleted (PTYPE, SEL, SYMB).
Process_Date: 2005
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Because California has such complex geology, many of the original map units contained a wide variety of lithologies and are difficult to characterize. We subdivided many of the units, grouping outcrops with common characterisitcs that allowed a coherent description. For example, the map unit SO (Silurian and Ordovician sedimentary rocks) was divided into SO1 (southeastern California - primarily dolomite and limestone), SO2 (eastern Sierra Nevada - primarily argillite and sandstone), and SO3 (eastern Klamath Mountains - primarily graywacke and phyllite). These subunits were named by simply appending an integer and placing the resulting label into SGMC_LABEL. Their geographic, lithologic, and age characteristics are recorded in the accompanying attribute tables (CAunits, CAlith, CAage).
