Bedrock geology & GIS map for Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument
The National Park Service's Geologic Resources Inventory (GRI) Team announced the completion and availability of digital geologic map coverage for Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument (ORPI). Providing parks with digital geologic maps meets the geologic inventory goal defined by the NPS Inventory and Monitoring Program. This map is provided in full GIS coverage.
