Abstract

The Forbes Geology GIS comprises a digital compilation of regional geological mapping of the Forbes 1:250,000 sheet by AGSO and the NSW DMR under the National Geoscience Mapping Accord from 1995 to 1999. The data package includes all mapping data from the 6 component 1:100,000 geological sheets; Parkes, Grenfell, Bogan Gate, Marsden, Condobolin and Wyalong. The GIS includes polygon and line layers depicting outcropping and buried rock types, structures, and regolith landforms. It also includes point layers depicting outcrop descriptions; mineral occurrences; geochemical, thin section and geochronological samples; georeferenced photographs; structural readings; and drill hole locations. Images of AGSO's airborne magnetic and radiometric data, and a depth to slightly weathered bedrock model are included.

Lineage

Geological mapping was compiled through integration of field mapping, aerial photograph interpretation, 400m line spaced airborne geophysics (magnetics and radiometrics), university studies and open file company reports. Mapping was scanned and digitised in Intergraph Microstation and Arc/Info from compilation sheets compiled on to 1:50,000 scale topographic film bases. Preliminary data was released in hardcopy in April 1999. Since then, considerable further editing has been performed in Arc/Info to create the current version. Data was converted to MapInfo and ArcView formats from Arc/Info.
