Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
This shapefile was extracted from the work done by USGS, mapping the surficial geology for the Columbia River Basin.  The approximate boundary of the pullman_moscow aquifer was extracted from this gis layer. This report is one in a series of digital maps, data files, and
reports generated by the US Geological Survey to provide geologic
process and mineral resource information for the Interior Columbia
Basin Ecosystem Management Project (ICBEMP), a US Forest Service and
Bureau of Land Management interagency project.  The various digital
maps and data files which were provided by the USGS, and which are
available in this and other reports, are being used in a GIS-based
ecosystem assessment which includes a comprehensive analysis of
past, present, and future ecosystem conditions within the general
area of the Columbia River Basin east of the Cascade Mountains.
Purpose:
The goal of the ICBEMP management strategy is to provide management
tools to sustain or restore ecosystem integrity and produce desired
conditions, uses, products, values, and services over the long
term.  The intent of the project is to understand the ramifications
of management practices or disturbances both in the area subject to
the practice or disturbance as well as effects which may be removed,
in time and space, from the area.
Dataset credit:
Bruce Johnson of the USGS is the primary author for 
the original dataset from which this gis layer was extracted. 
This product would not exist without the input of the many
geoscientists whose work was essential to making both state geologic
maps and mineral resources databases.  This effort would not be
possible without those past products and others from the following
agencies: the US Geological Survey, the California Division of Mines
and Geology, the Idaho Bureau of Mines and Geology, the Montana Bureau
of Mines and Geology, the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, the
Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, the Utah
Geological and Mineral Survey, the Geological Survey of Wyoming, and
the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.

USGS geologists, Thor Kiilsgaard and Fred Miller, provided useful
advice about regional geology and the identification of unlabeled
features on the published state geologic maps.  Art Bookstrom, Steve
Box, Jim Evans, Tom Frost, and Michael Zientek, USGS geologists,
contributed to the development of the major lithology classification
scheme and to the classification of individual bedrock units for the
map.

We particularly acknowledge Patrick Geehan, the Bureau of Land
Management project coordinator for the Interior Columbia River Basin
Ecosystem Management Project, for recognizing the importance of
geology to ecosystem management and for supplying funds to digitize
the Washington, Idaho, and Montana state geologic maps.

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.3
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
