NMBGMR Draft Geologic Data Model - v. 1.0.4
In the interests of standardization and interoperability, we are migrating our geologic maps into the USGS NCGMP09
data model. However, our well data model
is still actively being used. Documentation for the NMBGMR geology data model is being provided for users with legacy data in this model. We also hope that it will provoke discussion in the ongoing effort to improve NCGMP09
and other models.
Linear elements on a geologic map include lithologic and other types of contacts,
structural elements like faults and folds,
and geologic features best
mapped as lines like dikes. Other linear elements on a map are cross
section locations, transects,
and cartographic elements like map
boundaries. Basemap data like topography, hydrography, roads, and political
boundaries are beyond the scope of this geologic data model.
