Detailed geologic maps are the foundation for any geologic, hydrogeologic, and engineering studies. However, consistent, seamless, detailed geologic maps are lacking for central Texas. In order to manage its groundwater resources with the best available data the District has embarked on a long-term project to produce a digital seamless Geographic Information System (GIS) geologic map. This report summarizes the data sources, procedures, and results of Phase 1. Principle activities include scanning, data conversion to (raster) digital map formats and georeferencing. The final product of Phase I is hosted by the University of Texas at Austin’s Texas ScholarWorks, University of Texas Libraries.
