An inventory of subsurface geologic data: structure contour and isopach datasets, U.S. Geological Survey

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

Under the direction and funding of the National Cooperative Mapping Program with guidance and encouragement from the United States Geological Survey (USGS), a digital database of three-dimensional (3D) vector data, displayed as two-dimensional (2D) data-extent bounding polygons. This geodatabase is to act as a virtual and digital inventory of 3D structure contour and isopach vector data for the USGS National Geologic Synthesis (NGS) team. This data will be available visually through a USGS web application and can be queried using complimentary nonspatial tables associated with each data harboring polygon. This initial publication contains 60 datasets collected directly from USGS specific publications and federal repositories. Further publications of dataset collections in versioned releases will be annotated in additional appendices, respectfully. These datasets can be identified from their specific version through their nonspatial tables. This digital dataset contains spatial extents of the 2D geologic vector data as polygon features that are attributed with unique identifiers that link the spatial data to nonspatial tables that define the data sources used and describe various aspects of each published model. The nonspatial DataSources table includes full citation and URL address for both published model reports, any digital model data released as a separate publication, and input type of vector data, using several classification schemes. A tabular glossary defines terms used in the dataset. A tabular data dictionary describes the entity and attribute information for all attributes of the geospatial data and the accompanying nonspatial tables.
