DescriptionTo most geologists, geologic maps are the single most useful type of information for understanding the geology of the land surface. As a result, geologic mapping has a long history, with over two thousand geologic maps produced in Arizona since about 1900. This index identifies only those maps that are available from the Arizona Geological Survey through the online Document Repository (http://repository.http://http://http://azgs.arizona.edu////). Approximately 720 maps of various areas within Arizona are available from approximately 500 publications. The Geologic Map of Arizona (2000) (Fig. 1) is used as background to the map indexes. Figures 2 and 3 identify regional maps with scale ranging from 1:100,000 to 1:1,000,000. Figures 4-10 identify detailed geologic maps with scale ranging from 1:200 to 1:99,000. Each of these maps is labeled with a publication number, for example “OFR 95-1”. The map indexes are followed by a list of citations to the maps that is organized alphabetically by publication number (pubNum). Generally, a user of this index would locate an area of interest on a map index, identify the publication numbers for maps in the area of interest, and then find the relevant citation or citations. With the citations one can then retrieve the desired maps from the document repository at the Arizona Geological Survey web site (repository.http://http://http://azgs.arizona.edu///).
