Abstract

The geology of the Payette National Forest and vicinity, Idaho (Fig. 1), was mapped and compiled by Karen Lund between 1992 and 1996. The geologic data for the digital map are from original mapping as well as compilation by Lund of numerous sources of published and unpublished geologic maps that are cited in the section 'Bibliography of Geologic Map Sources.' The geology was compiled onto 1:100,000-scale topographic base maps for input into a geographic information system (GIS). The digital geologic map database can be queried in many ways to produce a variety of geologic maps. Digital base map data files are not included: they may be obtained from a variety of commercial and government sources. This database is not meant to be used or displayed at any scale larger than 1:100,000 (e.g., 1:62,500 or 1:24,000). This open-file report describes the geologic units and the methods used to convert the geologic map data into a digital format and documents the file structures. We wish to thank Gregory N. Green of the U.S. Geological Survey for reviewing the digital GIS files.
