A County Geologic Atlas project is a study of a county's geology, and its mineral and ground-water resources. The information collected during the project is used to develop maps, data-base files, and reports. This same information is also produced as digital files for use with computers. The map information is formatted as geographic information system (GIS) files with associated data bases. The maps and reports are also reproduced as portable document files (PDFs) that can be opened on virtually any computer using the free Acrobat Reader from Adobe.com.
The printed Rock County Geologic Atlas is comprised of 6 Plates. Plate1, Database Map; Plate2, Bedrock Geology; Plate3, Surficial Geology; Plate4, Quaternary Stratigraphy; Plate5, Sand-Distribution Model; and Plate6, Bedrock Topography and Depth to Bedrock. Digital files are included in the Supplemental digital and GIS data available for download or via DVD from the Minnesota Geological Survey.
