This map on compact disc is a digital version of the 1:500,000-scale Geologic Map of Utah compiled by Lehi F. Hintze and published by the Utah Geological (and Mineral) Survey in 1980. In general, the digital map is identical to the 1980 published map; however, it contains some minor revisions.
The digital spatial data files that comprise the Digital Geologic Map of Utah are provided in both PC ARC/INFO coverage and ArcView GIS shapefiles as well as ArcInfo Import files. The files are organized in several folders and subfolders. In addition to the spatial data files, several program, PDF, text, database, and image files are included to help the user view, evaluate, and utilize the spatial data. The metadata for each coverage or theme are in the respective subfolder that contains the spatial data. The projection of the geospatial data included on this compact disc is UTM zone 12, North American Datum 1927, and spheroid Clarke 1866. The units are in meters. The spatial data files can only be displayed using Geographic Information System software. Similarly, the Acrobat portable document files can only be viewed using Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader. ArcExplorer 1.1 and Acrobat Reader 4.05 are included on the compact disc for your convenience and must be installed to view the spatial data and portable document files.
