FY 2016 Appropriation

The Geologic Mapping program produces printed and digital geologic maps, most at 1:100,000 and 1:24,000 scales. Mapping priorities are set each year by a State Mapping Advisory Committee representing the main land management agencies in the state. Program goals are to complete 1:100,000 scale maps by 2018 and map selected areas at 1:24,000 in the rapid urban growth areas as priorities dictate. Maps provide detailed geologic information needed for proper land use decisions.
