Description:

Abstract: Digital version of Quaternary Geology maps of northern and southern Michigan.
Purpose: State-wide planning, evaluation, or management.
Supplemental Information:

Hard copy maps digitized by the Michigan Natural Features Inventory using Intergraph Microstation. Michigan Resource Information System (MIRIS) data used as base reference. Digitized into three files in the Michigan State Plane coordinate system. Converted to ARC/INFO coverages using IGDSARC command. Cleaned in ARC/INFO. Projected to Michigan GEOREF coordinate system by MDNR Real Estate Division, Resource Mapping and Aerial Photography Section. All three coverages joined together using mapjoin command. Corrections made along state plane line for zones 2 and 3 in the lower peninsula. Used hard copy map as reference when fixing errors (predominantly slivers).
