Geologic Map Database of the Washington DC Area Featuring Data From Three 30 X 60 Minute Quadrangles: Frederick, Washington West, and Fredericksburg
The Washington DC Area geologic map database (DCDB) provides geologic map information of areas to the NW, W, and SW of Washington, DC to various professionals and private citizens who have uses for geologic data. Digital, geographically referenced, geologic data is more versatile than traditional hard copy maps, and facilitates the examination of relationships between numerous aspects of the geology and other types of data such as: land-use data, vegetation characteristics, surface water flow and chemistry, and various types of remotely sensed images. The DCDB was created by combining Arc/Info coverages, designing a Microsoft (MS) Access database, and populating this database. Proposed improvements to the DCDB include...
Digital geologic map and database of the Frederick 30 X 60 minute quadrangle, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia
The geology of the Frederick 30 by 60 minute quadrangle, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia, was mapped on 1:24,000-scale base maps from 1989 to 1994. The geologic data were manually compiled at 1:100,000-scale in 1997 and were digitized and converted to Arc/Info GIS coverages from 1998 to 1999.
Cell maps for each oil and gas play were created by the USGS as a method for illustrating the degree of exploration, type of production, and distribution of production in a play or province. Each cell represents a quarter-mile square of the land surface, and the cells are coded to represent whether the wells included within the cell are predominantly oil-producing, gas-producing, both oil and gas-producing, or dry. The well information was initially retrieved from the Petroleum Information (PI) Well History Control System (WHCS), which is a proprietary, commercial database containing information for most oil and gas wells in the U.S. Cells were developed as a graphic solution to overcome the problem of displaying...
