GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Geology - Faults" (1998)
Description: The North Carolina Department of Environment, Health, and Natural Resources, Division of Land Resources, NC Geological Survey, in cooperation with the North Carolina Center for Geographic Information and Analysis, developed the GIS data set version of the Geology of North Carolina. The data represents the digital equivalent of the official State Geology map (1:500,000-scale), but was digitized from (1:250,000-scale) base maps. This file contains the line attributes which identify faults in North Carolina. The geologic formation id is the only attribute present. There are two additional files which accompany this layer, formations and dikes. These should be used together with the faults layer. All three files come together. (Refer to the cross references section for more detail on the formations and dikes). This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
