Geologic Map of West Virginia

1968 geological map of West Virginia. Also includes separate fold and fault coverages from the same map. In 1968 the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey (WVGES) published a State Geologic Map. The topographic base was compiled from Army Map Service 1:250,000 scale map sheets. In 1998 the WV Division of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) scanned the hardcopy geologic maps at 300 dpi, 8-bit color, and then georeferenced them. Rock unit boundaries were digitized off the images and attributed by WVDEP. The USGS-Water Resources Division later revised the attributes of large water bodies and referenced the datum to NAD83.TEST
