Mapview:geologic Maps Of The Nation


Recommended Posts

I still carry my trusty Geologic Map of New Mexico, tucked inside my gazatteer, right next to the BLM use maps. But this...

...mapView:Geologic Maps of the Nation...

...has been a wonderful prospecting tool. You can overlay geology onto road, topo and satellite imagery!

Fossils, look out!...explorers are on the way. :D

Happy Hunting!

There are three icons in the upper left of the map...a road sign (roads), a satellite (imagery) and mountains (topo). These are your choice of base map. Opacity of the geologic map can be adjusted with the half black, half white circle icon on the right of the map.

Zoom around and go find those new outcrops to explore! :)

That is a great tool! Unfortunately I'm out of it's range of usefulness for now.

looking forward to the completion of the program.

Thanks for posting.

I like that a lot, it's nice to have all of the single geo maps stitched together. Thanks for posting the link

I can't find a key for the colors shown on the map. Where is it?

Left click on the map section you are on and it will give you options. You click download and it takes you to another window so that you can view them. Also in this window you can download the kmz file for google earth.

I remember this being posted on here before. I have been using it for awhile now. Sadly though for Missouri not all of the maps are up to date and some of them are rather hard to read. Others are really good though while some are not as detailed as what I can get in paper form from the DNR. Also Missouri is behind the times and only does their maps in paper form. I am hoping someday they have them for download. The paper maps are expensive and of course only cover a small section just like you see in this. Now imagine having to pay for each paper section...

Still though over all this is a pretty useful site. It can at least get you some idea of what you are dealing with.

Sorry for all those iPhone users though. It requires Adobe Flash Player. Is there a version that doesn't require Flash?
