Global GIS : Geology of the conterminous United States at 1:2,500,000 scale : Geology
This datalayer is a polygon coverage representing geologic regions of the conterminous United States. It is a digital version of the geology features of H.M. Beikman and P.B. King's Geologic Map of the United States, originally published at a scale of 1:2,500,000 (1974). This version of the datalayer was published as part of the USGS Global GIS : global coverage database (2003).
The USGS Global GIS database contains a wealth of USGS and other public domain data, including global coverages of elevation, landcover, seismicity, and resources of minerals and energy at a nominal scale of 1:1 million. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and The American Geological Institute (AGI) announced a cooperative agreement that will focus on making the USGS Global Geographic Information System (GIS) database readily available to educators and the general public in the form of a DVD based world atlas.
