Author: Brain Slater
Description:The New York Geological Survey, as part of the United States Geoscience Information Network (USGIN), has provided the Bedrock Geologic Map of New York. The map service was published by the Illinois Geological Survey (ILGS) as part of the USGIN initiative to create and facilitate discovery and access to geoscience information provided by state and federal geological surveys of the United States. This resource was compiled by New York Geological Survey and is being served by the ILGS on an interim basis. Two layers are included in the WMS service are as follows: 1. US-NY_ NYGS _250k_Geologic_Age is a compilation dataset containing geologic units covering the state of New York at a scale of 1:250,000, portrayal based on geologic age. 2. US-NY_NYGS_250k_Lithology is a compilation dataset containing geologic units covering the state of New York at a scale of 250,000; the data in this layer is portrayed based on lithology. The complete data are available in the following formats: web feature service, web map service, ESRI service endpoint, and an Excel workbook for download. The workbook contains 12 worksheets comprising information about the template, notes related to revisions of the template, resource provider information, the data, and data schema mapping details. The data worksheet is named to reflect the layer in the WFS service (GeologicUnitView Feature), with an accompanying field list (data mapping view) for that layer. This resource was compiled by the New York Geological Survey and made available for distribution through the National Geothermal Data System.
