Acceleration of the County Geologic Atlas Program
This project will accelerate production of County Geologic Atlases (part A). This is a set of geologic maps and associated databases for a county that facilitate informed management of natural resources, especially water and minerals.
This grant is funding an update of the Geologic Atlas of Winona County produced in 1984 and a Geologic Atlas of Houston County.
By the end of calendar year 2014 MGS will publish part A of the Geologic Atlases of Winona and Houston counties. The products will include printed maps, geographic information system files and associated databases. Map themes include bedrock geology, bedrock topography, surficial geology, and data distribution. The County Well Index database has been updated for both counties.
Maps of both counties are either finished or in the technical review stage.
