Description
 
Title: County digital geological maps of Nevada

Author: Ronald H. Hess and Gary L. Johnson
Year: 1997
Series: Open-File Report 1997-01z
Version: Year 2000 release
Format: 137 MB, DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
Scale: 1:250,000

This file contains digital geological maps of every county in Nevada in ARC/INFO export format and DXF file format. These maps were digitized from the 1:250,000-scale plates in the NBMG county geological bulletins. Each dataset contains a polygon coverage of geology and an arc coverage of faults.

The purpose of this project was to create quality state-wide county digital geologic maps from existing 1:250,000-scale maps in county geologic and mineral resource bulletins published by the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG).

YEAR 2000 RELEASE (December 5, 2000)

IMPORTANT UPDATE INFORMATION ON NEW DATA FILES ON THIS CD.

The directory, New_Shapes, contains the same files as in the Arc_maps directory but in shape file format. The shape file format is a nonproprietary format that can be directly used or imported buy various GIS type software packages. A "g" at the end of the primary file name denotes polygon geology, a "ga" denotes geology arcs, and a "f" denotes faults.

The directory, New_Basedata, contains updated versions of the following Nevada base data layers. The directory for arc export files is called E00_file. The directory for shape files is called Shapefiles. These 1:1,000,000 scale data layers were added after the first release of this CDROM and are not listed in the original documentation.

Nevada 7.5 minute, 1:24,000 scale, quad coverage from USGS:
Quad8_new.e00 in arc export format and quad8_new in shape file format.

Nevada Township and Range coverage:
tr100_98.e00 in arc export format and tr_a and tr_p in shape file format.

Nevada small scale roads coverage:
roads.e00 in arc export format and Roads in shape file format.

Nevada cities:
cities.e00 in arc export format and Cities in shape file format.

Nevada state and county boundaries:
county.e00 in arc export file format and County in shape file format.
