Index of Arizona geologic maps published for 1925-2015
The Arizona Geological Survey just released a geologic map index by staff geologists Jon Spencer and Steve Richard comprising maps that are available from the AZGS’ online Document Repository.
The index includes the citation, location and map scale data for
approximately 720 maps of areas within Arizona derived from
approximately 500 publications published by AZGS. The Geologic Map of Arizona (2000) is used as background to the map indexes, identifying regional maps with scale ranging from 1:100,000 to 1:1,000,000.
Additional figures identify detailed geologic maps with scale ranging
from 1:200 to 1:99,000. Each map is labeled with a publication serial
number, for example “OFR 95-1” or DGM-76. [Right, index map of 1:24,000 quadrangle maps]
map indexes are followed by a list of map citations organized
alphabetically by publication serial number (pubNum). Generally, a user
of this index would locate an area of interest on a map index, identify
the publication numbers for maps in the area of interest, and then find
the relevant citation or citations. With the citations one can then
retrieve the desired maps from the document repository at the Arizona Geological Survey web site.
