Generalized map of surficial and bedrock units as of February 2010

The Clark County dirt mapping team will soon expand from 4 to 7 or 8 as we approach a key deadline. The morass of linework remains a major issue, but we are slowly refining it into a clean data set. Here, I thought I would take a step back and evaluate the map on a more fundamental level...that of key mappable unit types. Much of this map reflects the original data sources that we are refining, but it provides a very nice overview of the distribution of the key map unit types in the county. The deposits are not divided by age in this rendition...just process / deposit type.

As the full team begins to take on the county en masse, I will post updates of this particular representation as it evolves.
