Summary

Compilation of basic data used in developing surficial geologic maps and significant gravel aquifer maps.

Description

SURFICIAL_MATERIALS_POINTS contains point data describing the textures of surficial sediments, independent of interpretations regarding their origin mapped at a scale of 1;24,000, from the Maine Geological Survey. Thickness of gravel, sand, silt, clay, and diamicton is shown. Data comes from auger holes, test pits, well logs, test borings, and gravel pits. Mapped at a scale 1:24,000. Printed maps published by the Maine Geological Survey on USGS 7.5' quadrangle bases. Point data compiled and digitized by the Maine Geological Survey from data compiled on USGS 7.5' quadrangle bases. Point attribute table contains information on the type of data point and, where appropriate, depth to bedrock, depth to water table, well yield, and/or material type and thickness.

Data Quality 

Scope of quality information
Resource level  dataset




Data quality report - Quantitative attribute accuracy
Measure description Attribution of the data set was checked for data entry errors through a series of reviews that checked for inconsistencies with interpretation results. The coverage has been checked for errors and attribution is complete.




Data quality report - Absolute external positional accuracy
Dimension horizontal


Measure description The data were compiled on a 1:24,000 scale base with a horizontal accuracy +/- 40 feet or 12 meters. Point locations determined either by plotting position on a USGS topographic map based on odometer measurements and landmarks, or, for more recent data, with GPS.




Lineage 

Process step
When the process occurred 2009-07-01 00:00:00
Description Added materials points for the following MGS publications: 09-3, Surficial materials in the Wiscasset quadrangle, Maine (supersedes 99-53). 09-5, Surficial materials in the Damariscotta quadrangle, Maine (supersedes 99-44). 09-10, Surficial materials in the East Pittston quadrangle, Maine (supersedes 99-75). 09-12, Surficial materials in the North Whitefield quadrangle, Maine (supersedes 00-46). 09-19, Surficial materials in the Pushaw Lake quadrangle, Maine (supersedes 01-209).




Process step
When the process occurred 2000-01-04 00:00:00
Description When mapping the surficial geology or the extent of sand and gravel aquifers in a quadrangle, a geologist first makes observations about the surficial materials at a network of points throughout the area. These points of observation may be auger holes, road cuts, gravel pits, stream cuts, or other places where sediments are visible. The geologist describes the materials at each location. Sedimentary materials range in particle size from clay (<0.002 mm) to boulders (>256 mm or 10"). The observation points are plotted on the quadrangle and the resulting surficial materials map shows what is known about the distribution, thickness, and texture of sediments in the area. By combining materials data with well and test hole data, seismic studies, other published information, and analysis of aerial photographs, the geologist then interprets the pattern of these materials to create a geologic map. Surficial materials maps are often best used in conjunction with related maps such as surficial geology maps or significant sand and gravel aquifer maps.
