AASG Geothermal Data: Quaternary (Active) Fault Content Model

Basic Information
Author: Richard, Stephen M.; Matti, Jordan
Description:Please see the current location for information exchange formats (Excel workbooks and schemas) at http://schemas.usgin.org/models. This repository is not the most updated location for schemas. This document-like information object is the content schema for describing active fault features. Note that fault features require a geometry field that contains the geographic location of the fault trace (typically named'shape'in ESRI feature classes). The actual template for deploying services must be a GIS feature class, thus cannot be implemented as an Excel spreadsheet. Design is focused on faults portrayed as line segments. The content model is based on the GeoSciML thematic view for ShearDisplacementStructure (see https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/wiki/bin/view/CGIModel/GeoSciMLThematicViewModel), extended with some convenience properties specific to young fault structures. Active in this context denotes that there is compelling evidence of fault displacement during the Quaternary. The version 1.2 content model has been reviewed by NGDS project technical teams and the normative version is now at :http://www.geothermaldata.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=s81mQBojfLo%3d&tabid=444&mid=1271
