Data Identification
Abstract: The Iowa stratigraphic column consists of rock materials of varying geologic age that have been categorized into a shapefile for summarizing the 3 dimensional aspect of Iowa's geologic framework for water & mineral resouce investigations within the state. This shapefile represents a subset of GEOSAM (Iowa's Geologic Sampling Points) that has geologic data associated with site specific data that may consist of well samples, cores, quarry faces, roadcuts, or river exposures.
Purpose: To be utilized as a point source for geologic interpretations of Iowa geology (both structure and thickness).
