Title: Geothermal Investigations in Idaho , Part 9, Potential for Direct Heat Application of Geothermal Resources
Publication date: 1980
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
This coverage shows the wells and springs in Idaho that have water temperatures that are either warm (68-85 degrees Fahrenheit), or are geothermal (> 85 degrees Fahrenheit).
Purpose:
This layer was created in order to provide an up-to-date and accurate listing of wells and springs in Idaho that have water temperatures that reflect geothermal sources.  The coverage is the result of compiling several databases that contained geothermal resources in Idaho.  The initial database was produced by John Mitchell, Linda Johnson, and John Anderson, and published in the Idaho Department of Water Resources Water Information Bulletin No. 30, Part 9, "Geothermal Investigation in Idaho - Potential for Direct Heat Application of Geothermal Resources" in June, 1980.  A 1:500,000 map was included with that publication.  The creation of this current coverage was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy through their GeoPowering the West Program.
Supplemental information:
Although this coverage is superior to previous databases and maps, it is not complete.  As such, it will continue to undergo review and revision, and new versions will be published periodically

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
Metadata profiles defining additional information:
Profile: ESRI Metadata Profile
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.
Instructions: On the top of the page, click on the title of the dataset to toggle opening and closing of all metadata content sections or click section links listed horizontally below the title to open individual sections. Click on a section name (e.g. Description) to open and close section content. Within a section, click on a item name (Status, Key Words, etc.) to open and close individual content items. By default, the Citation information within the Description section is always open for display.
