Summary

This data release consists of point data digitized from structural geologic orientation symbols consisting of mostly foliations and lineations. The data comes from primarily Proterozoic aged rocks in the eastern-central Rocky Mountain Front Range of Colorado. Compilation of the data is from twenty-three geologic maps published by the U.S. Geological Survey and the Colorado Geological Survey between 1964 and 2009, primarily using 7.5-minute, 1:24,000 scale quadrangles. Structural geologic orientation data of planar features (e.g., foliations) and linear features (e.g., fold axes), both with associated attribute values of strike and trend, dip and plunge, location, elevation, and geologic unit were captured for more than 25,000 features [...]

Purpose

These data are a compilation of digital structural geologic point symbols found on USGS 7.5-minute series (1:24,000-scale) geologic maps in primarily Proterozoic aged rocks of central Colorado. The data are suitable for use in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or other database and geospatial software. Collection, digitizing, and compilation of data of this type is a part of the mission of the Mineral Resources Program of the USGS. The information is intended to meet the needs of a wide community of users that extends from geoscience and mineral exploration communities to State and Federal agencies, the general public, and other industry interests.
