This data set was extracted from an original set that shows the coal fields of Alaska and the conterminous United States. Most of the material for the conterminous United States was collected from James Trumbull's "Coal Fields of the United States, Conterminous United States" map (sheet 1, 1960). The Gulf Coast region was updated using generalized, coal-bearing geology obtained from State geologic maps. The Alaska coal fields were collected from Farrell Barnes's "Coal Fields of the United States, Alaska" map (sheet 2, 1961). (National Atlas of the United States, 2002) Purpose: These data are intended for geographic display and analysis at the National level, and for large regional areas. The data should be displayed and analyzed at scales appropriate for 1:5,000,000-scale data. No responsibility is assumed by the U.S. Geological Survey in the use of these data. Shapefiles were obtained from the National Atlas of the United States web site. See the Full Metadata page for process step information pertaining to the creation of the original data.
