New Interactive Geology Map
A new interactive map of Oregon offers a peek at the state’s geology.
Announced today by the Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, the map provides easy exploration of the state’s geology, as well as access to GIS data, reports, and map sources with a click. The map was made with the Oregon Geologic Data Compilation, which integrates the best available geologic mapping—a total of 342 maps. It was released in honor of Geologic Map Day, being celebrated tomorrow as part of Earth Science Week.
