Purpose

To delineate geologic contacts and thematically depict generalized geologic age of outcrops in Open File Report 97-470-K Map Showing Geology, Oil and Gas Fields, and Geologic Provinces of the Caribbean Region, which was compiled as a reference for the U.S. Geological Survey World Energy Project assessment of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources of the world. This dataset was used to produce maps in ESRI ArcMap 8.3 and Adobe Acrobat PDF formats. Files were exported from geodatabase feature class to ESRI shapefile and ArcInfo export formats for use in other applications.
