The Kentucky Geological Survey (KGS), as part of the United States Geoscience Information Network (USGIN), provides a compilation of geologic maps from the NGCMP-09 database (http://ngcmp.usgs.gov/) covering the United States of America including Hawaii and Alaska. This Service was published by the KGS as part of the USGIN initiative to “create and facilitate discovery and access to geoscience information provided by state and federal geological surveys of the United States”. These data were compiled by the Kentucky Geological Survey. Four (4) layers included in this service are as follows: 1. US-KY_KGS_24K_Geologic_Age is a compilation dataset containing geologic units covering the Commonwealth of Kentucky at 1:24,000 scale. The data table includes geologic name, description, lithology, and geologic history. The data in this layer is portrayed based on geologic age; 2. US-KY_KGS_24K_Lithology is a compilation dataset containing geologic units covering the Commonwealth of Kentucky at 1:24,000 scale. The table includes geologic name, description, lithology, and geologic history. The data in this layer is portrayed based on lithology; 3. US-KY_KGS_24K_Contacts is a compilation dataset containing geologic contacts covering the Commonwealth of Kentucky at a scale of 1:24,000. The table includes contact type, positional accuracy and generic symbolizer (FGDC). Citations are included in the data set. 4. US-KY_KGS_24K_Faults is a compilation dataset containing shear displacement structures covering the Commonwealth of Kentucky at a scale of 1:24,000. The table includes fault type, positional accuracy, and generic symbolizer (FGDC). Citations are included in the dataset.
Layer Group for SLD portrayal (SLD_layers)
Three layers for use with SLD portrayal. These have a single solid color for polygons and a single solid line styling for lines. 5. gsmlp2.0:contactview 6. gsmlp2.0:sheardisplacementstructureview 7. gsmlp2.0:geologicunitview
Geologic Unit Polygons (gsmlp2.0:geologicunitview)
Geologic faults and shear zones (gsmlp2.0:sheardisplacementstructureview)
Geologic contacts (gsmlp2.0:contactview)
This layer provides a portrayal in which units are categorized according to the representative geologic age of the unit using the ICS 2009 geologic time scale. For units with extended histories, the representative age choice is interpretive, and typically the older bounding age is used in this portrayal. An SLD specifying the symbolization for this layer is at http://repository.azgs.az.gov/resources/slds/xml/GeologicAgeIUGS2009URI.sld
Portrayal in which units are categorized according to the representative lithology from the CGI SimpleLithology vocabulary as specified by the representativeLithology_URI property in the underlying dataset. The data in this layer are portrayed based on lithology using the color scheme encoded in http://repository.azgs.az.gov/resources/slds/xml/LithologyCGI201001URI.sld. See https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/wiki/CGIModel/ConceptDefinitionsTG for OneGeology data integration by SM Richard.
This layer includes all mapped contacts between units, but not faults. The portrayal scheme is simple, with solid lines representing contacts that have been mapped, dashed lines representing inferred contacts, and dotted lines for concealed contacts. getFeatureInfo reports GeoSciML Portrayal ContactView feature properties contact type, positional accuracy and generic symbolizer (populated with geologic symbol code from FGDC-STD-013-2006)
This layer includes all faults (GeoSciML shear displacement structures). Symbolization provides decorations along major thrust faults. getFeatureInfo reports GeoSciML Portrayal FaultView feature properties contact type, positional accuracy and generic symbolizer (populated with geologic symbol code from FGDC-STD-013-2006 ).
