Description:
Abstract:
Data was digitized from original scribe sheets used to prepare the published Geologic Map of Wyoming (Love and Christiansen, 1985), consequently at a 1:500,000 scale.
Purpose:
This geologic map was prepared as part of a study of digital methods and techniques as applied to complex geologic maps.

Process_Description:
The geologic map was digitized from scribe sheets used to prepare the published Geologic Map of Wyoming (Love and Christiansen, 1985), consequently at a 1:500,000 scale. Stable base contact prints of the scribe sheets were scannned on a Tektronix 4991 digital scanner. The scanner automatically converts the scanned image to an ASCII vector format. These vectors were transferred to a VAX minicomputer, where they were loaded into Arc/Info. The dataset includes both linear and polygon features, with attributes derived from the original 1985 map.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
Faults and dikes are accompanied with decorations for cartographic purposes. The DECO database is an attributed vector graphic overlay of the decoration coverage. This dataset contains the teeth of thrust faults, shear zones, bars and balls, impact structure, diatremes, and ARC/INFO annotation. DIKES is the attributed vector file of the single line outcrops. Dikes at a scale of 1:500,000 are best represented by a thin single line and consequently have no area. Line Types and Attributes
