NMBGMR Draft Geologic Data Model - v. 1.0.4
JOINED & RELATED TABLES
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.
Several feature classes can be joined to tables that contain details about a particular attribute. This is especially useful where a parameter such as a lithologic unit has properties that don't vary (at least within the map area) and the details can be summarized in one place.
