|Summary:||In support of the proposed Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project, the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) developed a Geographic Information System (GIS)-based geologic compilation of published and unpublished maps for twelve "inch-to-mile" (1:63,360-scale) quadrangles encompassing the proposed hydroelectric project area. DGGS geologists reviewed and analyzed existing geologic mapping for quality and completeness, and the maps were converted for use in GIS. The conversion process included scanning and georeferencing the original hard-copy map documents, creating a geodatabase, digitizing the geologic data, assigning attributes, and producing a digital data product for public release. The best available geologic mapping was synthesized into a single compilation data layer, and is packaged along with georeferenced scans and digitized vector files of the original geologic source maps. Bedrock geology was reviewed and revised by an independent contractor to ensure consistency with current geologic interpretations of the area. This geodatabase product will be a valuable reference resource for developers, planners, and scientists working on the hydroelectric project, as well as for any other projects in the area.|
