Fossil prospecting combining geological maps and google earth
Dimitris posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHello all! I am trying to find some new areas around my place. So far there is not a single reference for fossils in this place, so I need somehow to choose some spots to prospect. There are some common rules like road cuttings, rivers & creeks that cut into the formations, abandoned quarries etc, all of which are beautifully presented in this post. However, I need to know how to take advantage of all information provided in a geological map. Which place would you check first for fossils? There are faults, borders between two geological ages etc.
GPS / Geologic Map for Garmin
DaveCO posted a topic in Collecting GearFor Christmas I was given a Garmin GPSMAP 64 device. I would like to load geologic maps on the device to help with my field work, but I can’t figure out how to convert files so they can be loaded. Does anybody know how to convert standard Geologic information files like mpk files to the format needed for Garmin devices? I can’t spend a lot of money on GIS software. Thanks!!
