Description:
Abstract:
Solid rock or Coastal Plain Formations present beneath any soil, surficial deposit or other surface cover. In some locations it may be exposed at the surface. These deposits are mapped at 1:24,000 scale using U. S. Geological Survey 7.5-minute topographic quadrangles as base maps.
The GIS data sets depict the areal extent of the bedrock materials in the quadangle. The data are from various Geologic Map Series and Open-File Maps at 1:24,000 scale. This publication also includes additional information that is not provided here, including one or more of the following: well and boring logs, bedrock-surface contours, geophysical data, cross sections, discussion of geologic history and hydrologic and engineering properties of the bedrock materials, age and correlation of the bedrock materials, lithologic data, and detailed unit descriptions.
Purpose:
To provide detailed bedrock geologic data for land and water-resource management.
Supplemental_Information:
Enlargement of data to more detailed scales than 1:24,000 could result in errors related to registration and depiction of bedrock map units. Data not edge matched with neighboring quadrangles.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Attribute accuracy is tested by manually comparing hard copy plots of the digital data with the source materials. When attributes can not be visually verified on plots they are interactively queried and verified on the screen.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Polygons intersecting the quadrangle boundary are closed along the border. Segments making up the outer and inner boundaries of a polygon tie end-to-end to completely enclose the area. All data crossing the quadrangle boundary are clipped to the boundary and data within a specified tolerance of the boundary are snapped to the boundary. The software ArcGIS 9.x checks for topology consistency and ensures that there are no duplicate lines, overshoots or undershoots. Data not edge matched with neighboring quadrangles.
Completeness_Report:
Exhaustive checks completed on all data layers. Internal review by author and compiler, Survey management, and Survey Editorial staff. The files are complete. Thare are no known omissions. Data not edge matched with neighboring quadrangles.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Contacts range in accuracy from about 50 feet where well-defined by landform features and field data to as much as 500 feet where not well-defined. Refer to published source map for details.

Process_Step:
Process_Date: 2014
Process_Description:
Field measurements and observations from natural and artificial bedrock exposures are combined with data from wells, test borings and geophysical surveys to map the bedrock units.The map was drafted on a stable overlay film registered to the 7.5 minute stable-base quadrangle. A copy of the map was scanned using a Colortrac SmartLF Gx+ T42 color roll-feed scanner. The map was scanned at a 300 dots per inch resolution and saved in a TIFF 5.0 image format. Image was georeferenced to the NAD83 New Jersey state plane coordinate system. The four corners of the image were linked to the corners of the NAD83, quadrangle box. An empty polygon shapefile was created and the bedrock geology polygons were heads-up digitized into this file. A root-mean-square (RMS) error of 0.002 was required (approximately 41.67 feet at 1:24,000 scale). Proof plots were made for each data set on mylar and compared to the original data. Linework that deviated from the original position by more than 0.02 inch were re-digitized, re-plotted, and corrected until acceptable results were obtained. The polygons were then attributed. The data set was printed out and QA/QC by the author. Data not edge matched with neighboring quadrangles.
