Frequently asked questions:
What does the data describe?
Title: Geologic map of the Boise City 30 X 60quadrangle, Cimarron and Texas Counties, Oklahoma.
Abstract: The geologic map of the Boise City quadrangle was compiled from existing, previously published geologic maps (listed on map and below) and from field reconnaissance by the authors. The reconnaissance geology was compiled onto modern 7.5topographic quadrangles; the geology was subsequently digitized for ultimate publication at a scale of 1:100,000. This map was published originally as Open-File Report OF17-2003. The map has been transferred from Open-File Reports to Oklahoma Geologic Quadrangle Maps and now revised and published as Oklahoma Geologic Quadrangle OGQ-43.

How does the data describe geographic features?
The published geologic map of the Boise City 30 X 60 quadrangle uses a digital U.S. Geological Survey 1:100,000 topographic base map, where symbols and line work are the same as those found on the published U.S. Geological Survey 1:100,000 paper topographic map for the quadrangle. Geologic symbols and line work are shown in the explanation on the map. Structural information and how the areal extent of geologic units is shown, also are typical of geologic maps published by the USGS and other state geological surveys. The PDF file is a digital representation of a paper geologic map and all the topographic and geologic symbols are the same as those used on commonly used and widely accessible federal- and state-survey-produced geologic maps. The geologic symbols conform closely, but not exact in every case, to the FGDC Digital Cartographic Standard for Geologic Map Symbolization. The ESRI shapefiles of the geologic map can be symbolized by the user to represent the published map or other geologic standards.

Why was the data created?
The data was created to provide a geologic map of the Boise City 30 X 60 quadrangle. The map or any parts of it can be printed or viewed at a variety of scales and be used in many ways by homeowners, landowners, civil engineers, land-use planners, government agencies, businesses, etc. This map data 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).

How were the data generated, processed, and modified?
The geology from previously published maps was redrawn by hand onto 32 modern 7.5 topographic maps. Differences in geologic contacts and distribution of geologic units were noted. The 7.5 topographic maps were taken into the field and used as the base maps for revising the geology of the area. The geologists field checked all the geologic contacts and distribution of units and, where necessary, modified or reinterpreted previously published data. In general, most of the field checking was done in areas that were readily accessible by vehicles; contacts and units were then projected to those areas that were not checked directly.
The geology was digitized at a scale of 1:24,000 from revisions drawn on 32 modern 7.5 topographic maps with each map unit as a separate layer in an ESRI shapefile format. All shapefiles are then assembled together and overlain by a USGS 1:100,000-scale topographic base map and checked for errors. Symbology and labels were designated for a final map layout at 1:100,000 scale. The final map was then converted to a PDF and published on a CD as Open-File Report OF17-2003.
OF17-2003 has been transferred to new map series called Oklahoma Geologic Quadrangle Maps. This new series offers digital data download via the OGS website. All quadrangle maps in this new series were reviewed and edited for continuity and consistency. OF17-2003 became published as Oklahoma Geologic Quadrangle OGQ-43 as a PDF along with the data files in ESRI shapefile format.
How reliable are the data; what problems remain in the data?
The geologic map is based on reconnaissance field checking of previously existing geologic maps and interpretation by the authors. Most of the contacts bordering Quaternary units are gradational. The contact between the Ogallala Formation and adjacent units is typically gradational or uncertain, particularly where the Ogallala consists of sand, silt, and gravel and the adjacent unit is predominantly sand, silt, and/or gravel. The distinction between “Cover Sand” and “Cover Loess” is based solely on the report by the Soil Conservation Service. The distinction between these units was not noted in the field by the authors of this map. Much work remains to be done concerning the distribution and origin of the different rock types that make up the Ogallala Formation. The distribution and age of several volcanic ash deposits in the Ogallala Formation could be used to help organize rock strata into units on the basis of their age or time of origin. The origin, distribution, and age of the basalt that caps Black Mesa need additional study. The Kiowa Shale and Cheyenne Sandstone need to be divided into separate map units. Correlation and documentation of Triassic strata in the Oklahoma Panhandle also requires additional study.
The format of the data as an ESRI shapefile was originally used as a cartographic tool for constructing a printable map. The map was digitized at a scale of 1:24,000 from 7.5topographic maps. Errors may exist from the digitizing process done at that scale and transferring the geology onto a 1:100,000-scale 30 X 60 topographic quadrangle. This may include errors in relation to the locational accuracy and precision of: the contact or map unit boundary to the topographic contour; a map unit layer to another map unit layer (e.g., gaps, overlaps, slivers, overshoots). These data and adjoining data for other quadrangles were produced on a quadrangle-by-quadrangle basis. Therefore, misalignment issues may exist between these data and other data downloaded for adjoining quadrangles. Also, the attribute table for each geologic feature layer may not contain detailed information except when used for categorizing some feature objects. Specific information about each geologic unit can be found in the Description of Units on the published PDF map. Currently underway, these issues are being resolved for each quadrangle map through revision and implementation of a geologic data model based on an ESRI geodatabase environment. These revised data files will be available for download on the OGS website in the future. Finally, some geologic contacts abruptly end at a water body as mapped by the authors; therefore, a Water layer is included that represents an open water contact.
