Surficial Geology (1:24,000) - Till and Bedrock

The till_bedrock data layer is part of a comprehensive study to produce a statewide digital map of the surficial geology at a 1:24,000-scale. This compilation of surficial geologic materials defines the areas of exposed bedrock, and the boundaries between glacial till, glacial stratified deposits, and overlying postglacial deposits. The till and bedrock layer shows areas of thin till, thick till, bedrock outcrops, and areas of abundant outcrop and shallow bedrock. Thin till and bedrock outcrops polygons are mutually exclusive; thick till polygons overlie areas of thin till, and abundant outcrop/shallow bedrock polygons overlie areas of thin till and bedrock outcrops. This data layer should be used in conjunction with the overlying stratified deposits, early postglacial, and postglacial data layers. MassGIS stores this layer as SURFGEO24K_TB_POLY.
