Digital Geologic Map of the Butler Peak 7.5' Quadrangle, San Bernardino County, California

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

This data set maps and describes the geology of the Butler Peak 7.5' quadrangle, San Bernardino County, California. Created using Environmental Systems Research Institute's ARC/INFO software, the data base consists of the following items: (1) a map coverage showing geologic contacts and units,(2) a scanned topographic base at a scale of 1:24,000, and (3) attribute tables for geologic units (polygons), contacts (arcs), and site-specific data (points). In addition, the data set includes the following graphic and text products: (1) A PostScript graphic plot-file containing the geologic map on a 1:24,000 topographic base accompanied by a Description of Map Units (DMU), a Correlation of Map Units (CMU), and a key to point and line symbols; (2) PDF files of the DMU and CMU, and of this Readme, and (3) this metadata file. The geologic map data base contains original U.S. Geological Survey data generated by detailed field observation and by interpretation of aerial photographs. The map was created by transferring lines from the aerial photographs to a 1:24,000 mylar orthophoto-quadrangle and then to a base-stable topographic map. This map was then scribed, and a .007 mil, right-reading, black line clear film made by contact photographic processes.The black line was scanned and auto-vectorized by Optronics Specialty Company, Northridge, CA. The non-attributed scan was imported into ARC/INFO, where the database was built. Within the database, geologic contacts are represented as lines (arcs), geologic units as polygons, and site-specific data as points. Polygon, arc, and point attribute tables (.pat, .aat, and .pat, respectively) uniquely identify each geologic datum and link it to other tables (.rel) that provide more detailed geologic information.

Access Constraints Use Constraints: The Butler Peak 7.5' geologic-map database should be used to evaluate and understand the geologic character of the Butler Peak quadrangle as a whole. The data should not be used for purposes of site-specific land-use planning or site-specific geologic evaluations. The database is sufficiently detailed to identify and characterize many actual and potential geologic hazards represented by faults and landslides. However, it is not sufficiently detailed for site-specific determinations or evaluations of those features. Faults shown do not take the place of fault-rupture hazard zones designated by the California State Geologist (see Hart, 1988). Use of the Butler Peak geologic-map database should not violate the spatial resolution of the data. Although the digital form of the data removes the constraint imposed by the scale of any derivative maps, the detail and accuracy issues inherent in map scale limitations are also present in the digital data. The fact that this database was edited at a scale of 1:24,000 means that higher-resolution data generally are not present in the dataset. Plotting at scales larger than 1:24,000 will not yield greater, real detail, although it may reveal fine-scale irregularities beyond the intended resolution of the database. Similarly, although higher-resolution data is incorporated at a few places, the resolution of the combined output will be limited by the lower-resolution data. This report is preliminary and has not been reviewed for conformity with U.S. Geological Survey editorial standards or with the North American Stratigraphic Code.
