This web map service presents a geologic map of Arizona. It is a digital version of Richard, S.M., Reynolds, S.J., Spencer, J.E., and Pearthree, P.A., comps., 2000, Geologic Map of Arizona: Arizona Geological Survey Map M-35, 1 sheet, scale 1:1,000,000. This dataset is available through a number of different distributions. An ESRI service and Web map service was created as a contribution to OneGeology. The same data is available in a format closer to the NCGMP09 database format as an ESRI Service, a Web map and Web feature service. See metadata record http://repository.stategeothermaldata.org/repository/resource/4e6b8f72f7d6c3856f092c6b850180eb/html for more information on the dataset.

Available map layers (3)

ShearDisplacementStructureView (gsmlp:ShearDisplacementStructureView)

This layer includes all faults (GeoSciML shear displacement structures). Symbolization provides decorations along major faults. There are 4,914 features in this dataset; getFeatureInfo reports GeoSciML Portrayal ShearDisplacementStructureView feature properties contact type, positional accuracy and generic symbolizer (may be populated with geologic symbol code from FGDC-STD-013-2006).

GeologicUnitView (gsmlp:GeologicUnitView)

Units are categorized according to the representative lithology from the CGI SimpleLithology vocabulary as specified by the representativeLithology_URI property in the underlying dataset. Lithologies were mapped into the CGI Simple Lithology vocabulary (see https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/wiki/CGIModel/ConceptDefinitionsTG) for OneGeology data integration by C. Caudill. Lithology for polygons is based on generalization of map units from Arizona Geological Survey Map M-35 and assignment of those units to lithology categories in the CGI simple Lithology vocabulary (see https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/wiki/CGIModel/ConceptDefinitionsTG) for OneGeology data integration by SM Richard.

ContactView (gsmlp:ContactView)

This layer includes all depositional, intrusive, or metamorphic contact between units, but not faults. There are 10,648 features in the dataset for the layer; getFeatureInfo reports GeoSciML Portrayal ContactView feature properties contact type, positional accuracy and generic symbolizer (populated with geologic symbol code from FGDC-STD-013-2006 )
