This dataset is a collection of unpublished geologic field maps and transfer maps that represent over 100 years of field data collected by Virginia geological survey staff. These field records include hand-drawn notes, strike and dip, contacts, economic, structure and paleo information. Some maps have been scanned and are available digitally. Most maps are located in our Charlottesville, Va offices in paper format. All are unique, one-of-a-kind documents.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Geologic Sections dataset consists of site-specific, large-scale geologic cross-sections (composite sheets). These sections were acquired from VDOT in order to save them from disposal. There are 5,500 geological profiles created for highway construction projects containing extensive core, auger and split-spoon logs at scales of 1:50 and 1:100 providing a unique record of subsurface geological and geotechnical data along roadways throughout Virginia. The thousands of feet of vertical subsurface data represents millions of dollars of investment in data acquisition by VDOT. The sections are useful as indicators of subsurface geology in large parts of Virginia. ...
