Description:
Abstract:
Fault types:Fault—Displacement unknown; dashed where inferred, dotted where concealedNormal fault—Dashed where inferred, dotted where concealed; ball and bar on downthrown block
Purpose:
The fault data was digitized from original scribe sheets used to prepare the published 1:500,000-scale Geologic Map of Wyoming (Love and Christiansen, 1985).

Process_Step:
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.
