ARCH Arches National Park Northern Colorado Plateau Network Intermountain Region Complete, Needs Updating yes 2000 2016 2015-0529: update from steph from DMT: The UGS now has 24k (7.5' quadrangle) maps for all of ARCH save the small portions of the park in the Cisco SW quadrangle. The present GRI map is from the Doelling 1985 50k scale map. Grant mentioned they've addressed more than a few issues with the Doelling map. The digital data we used is also problematic in that it was poorly digitized (from a digitizing tablet by the NPS Southeast Utah Group), and only contacts were initially captured, thus leading to issues of contacts and faults not connecting as they should. I've asked Grant and Kent if they have data for the Cisco SW quad, as well as for the Rill Creek quad as this would give us complete coverage of the park and surrounding area. A possible project for next FY when we don't have GPRA work and we have available resources!2011-1206: updated map snapshot……2010-0115: should revisit potential to use latest 24k mapping……completed and posted Image

CALO Cape Lookout National Seashore Southeast Coast Network Southeast Region Complete, Needs Updating yes 2008 2015 2015-0311: update from Stephanie O'Meara: __Hi All, Upon or near the completion release of the detailed geomorphic data for CALO that was done by Stan and Dorethea (ECU) I noticed the GIS data for the Portsmouth ro Cricket Island map (GRI MapCode PMCI) was "way off" positionally/geospatially. I contacted Dorethea whom I'd been working with for these maps and she was unaware of the issue. She was also "unable" to resolve or fix this as she didn't know how to check, resolve and/or "rubber-sheet" the data to correctly positioned imagery. I concluded the imagery they mapped from wasn't correct, and they just went with only that. From my database notes, "will not be released as the positional accuracy of the GIS data is way off (> 220m) and can't be improved (pers. comm. with Dorethea Ames 20090115) As the PMCI map is a part of the compiled park detailed geomorphic map (GRI MapCode CALG) this map was also affected. In working with Dorethea there was a lot the we/I fixed in their mapping. However, this was mainly differences in units and unit symbols in their report versus what was in the GIS data. Basically, there were units in their GIS data that had no mention in the report and vice versa. Dorethea explained that this was due to repeated changes to interpretation of units (mainly by Stan) and often these changes were not made to the GIS data. To fix the spatial issue here would require attempting to match their dated imagery to accurate imagery of the same year. Looking at ESRI imagery today, that I'm assuming is more recent than 2008, one can certainly see how "off" features are. However, as this is such a dynamic environment you'd expect to see some "change". However, as I noted 220m+ of offset back in 2008 with imagery close to the dated imagery they used I'm sure features are "off". So, how to proceed? Well, I never heard back from Dorethea, but then I also didn't follow up. Any fix really needs to come from ECU and Dorethea. Its an issue with their GIS data, and what imagery they produced their GIS data from. I think we could possibly help, but then I'd think I would have offered help back in 2008. /ugh This does need to be resolved! I'll contact Dorethea and ask her if anything has been done to correct the data for this one map. Cheers, Stephanie____ 2008-0924: completed and posted; some issues with ECU data lining up properly; needs resolved 2008-0115: received new cd-rom from Stan Riggs dated 2007-1227; contains 3 detailed inset maps for CALO (Portsmouth to Cricket Island; Drum Inlets; Hogpen Bay to Cape Lookout; GMAP 74876). Also have more generalized NCGS on entire CALO too to supplement Riggs finer detail as GMAPs 74878-74883; all are GIS files needing converted. Image

Initially we were told we'd have data and maps in late June to July. Now we're told we'll receive the first two island maps in mid-August, another two mid-September and the final map sometime in the winter! As we have an older map completed that covers the last island map (San Miguel) we'll make a push to get all maps we have done before September 30th for a GPRA, and then complete the last map when it comes in. Jim, along with Chase and Dalton, have digitized and QCd three older geologic to bedrock maps that will be a part of our deliverables to the park._____2015-0924: as per Heise email: CHIS - USGS continues to make progress there, as far as I know still on schedule for late 2016 delivery. No additional $ needed.___2013-1210: backing out to 2015 for now……..2012-0717: MEDN call on CHIS reveals that n USGS Muhs, Minor and Schumann are remapping all islands over next few years…..2011-0202: have bedrock geology for 3/5 islands from weaver stuff (not anacapa and santa barbara); park wants surficial of all 5 isles but no funding source identified…..proposed USGS 2011 funding….approval unknown..….backing down to 2013 at earliest…….2010-0315: Georef'd images to NGS benchmarks, some difficulties.

DENA Denali National Park Central Alaska Network Alaska Region Complete, Needs Updating yes 2006 2017 2016-1025: haven't done anything with Wrucke map to date; should consult with DENA denny capps on his priorities for park map…..2014-1208: updating McKinley 1x3 map by Chet Wrucke….2010-0907: complete and updated2010-0115: Jim Chappell has migrated much fwd and hopes to have done by late January…..2009-1211: Trista asks if we know about MS map that Haessler mentions: I am working through the technical reviews of the DENA GRI report. Peter Haeussler (USGS) suggests we include the following map reference in our digital geologic map: Bemis, Sean, 2004, Neotectonic framework of the north-central Alaska Range foothills: M.Sci thesis, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 153 pp. Another version of this appears in Bemis and Wallace, 2008, AGU monograph 179. According to Peter: "Their mapping changes quite a few features. For example, the north vergent thrust faults along the park road, and interpreted by Bemis as backthrusts (south-vergent thrusts). I think Bemis interpretation of these features is much better than previous mapping."2009-1109: were issues with map and unit tables that can be improved; Jim Chappell would like to upgrade this project based upon lessons learned from converting other AK GRI parks……2006-0822: lots of problems with "download" file projections and naming confusion: "DENAxxx" is the compiled larger scale maps; "DNLIxxx" are the 6-250k sheets, but they don't project properly at all because of UTM zone issues. THESE NEED TO BE ADDRESSED AND FIXED ASAP. Was "estimated" complete by end FY2005 bu really occurred in 2006 Image

The answer is that the estimated date for completion of the map as a USGS product is still fuzzy. If I were to guess, I would say sometime about a year from now. We are still dealing with obtaining and integrating both the topographic base and the geology from the "areas of interest" that were requested to be added to the map. I expect to have that part completed within a few weeks, but the topo base for the British Columbia part is still iffy. Then come two USGS internal peer reviews. I have the reviewers identified, but I can't predict how quickly they will complete their task. Then comes a series of approvals: One from the USGS Office Chief in Anchorage; then one from the USGS Alaska Science Center Director in Anchorage; then finally one from the USGS Director's agent in Menlo Park……….

OZAR Ozark National Scenic Riverways Heartland Network Midwest Region Complete, Needs Updating yes 2014 2016 2015-0504: Montauk MO 7.5' just completed by USGS (GMAP 76013)_____2014-0127: completed and posted…….2014-0114: have new GMAP 75805 for compiled OZAR for conversion… individual 24k's later likely…2013-0918: backing out to 2014……2013-0624: Jam Up Cave and Pine Crest 7.5's now released as paper (GMAP 757320; need GIS still……2012-0824: Alley Spring 7.5' (GMAP 75632) posted now too as PDF, no GIS….2011-0914: need heise update from fedmap…2011-0617: email from Dave Weary to Heise says "In the Ozarks, the geology of the Alley Spring quadrangle has Director's approval and should be out easily before the end of the fiscal year. If it's languishing near the end of the Summer I can still send the digits out. The Jam Up Cave and Pine Crest quads are in peer review, but probably doubtful by the end of FY."…… 2011-0202: backing out to 2012 for now…..Heise concurs on 2012; see emails of 1/13/2011…….2011-0118: added a few new gmaps from older MO GS pubs that may be of utility……2010-1115: changed to "CBS,NGC" to reflect work that can be done converting existing 7.5' data of USGS for OZAR area….2009-1118: ngmdb search for "weary" revealed new pubs for Round Spring (75211) and Cedar Grove (75212) 7.5's….need GIS for them though….2009-0902: need to discern needed 7.5's still not covered. Looks like Montauk, Cedar Grove, Gladden, Round Spring, The Sinks, Alley Spring, Bartlett, Jam Up Cave, Pine Crest, so search NGMDB for any new completions here first or USGS pubs…… 2007-1207: appears there will be holes in 7.5' coverage intersecting OZAR that USGS does not plan to map (need those quad names here Gladden, Spring Valley, The Sinks, Alley Spring, Jam Up cave, Pine Crest )). Need to consult with OZAR staff for their feelings on if data needed in those areas. Tim would like to see compare / contrast of newer 7.5's with GMAP 1622 (Spring Valley 30x60) and wonder if USGS is releasing newer map to supercede 30x60. Tim needs to upgrade HTLN MXD OZAR portion to reflect most recent maps (left off on 7336). GRE already have lots of 7.5' pieces digitally (Powder Mill Ferry, Eminence, Van Buren North, Stegall Mt, Winona, Big Spring, Van Buren South, Fremont, Low Wassie, Handy, Wilderness, Greer). FEDMAP says Montauk, Cedar Grove and Round Spring should be coming this FY 2008 (?) Image

WAPA War In The Pacific National Historical Park Pacific Islands Network Pacific West Region Complete, Needs Updating yes 2009 2017 2013-0816: from earlier emails from TTE: Hello, I took a quick look at the new (2007) mapping available for WAPA, available at: The new mapping has many similarities with the old; however, there are many important differences based on new surveys and geologic age dates. I know Tim is going to look into how much time and effort would be necessary to include this new information into our GRI map product. To help understand some of the basic differences between old and new mapping, I took a quick look and compiled the attached list of changes. I did not go through the unit descriptions in detail to determine discrepancies/updates and have not yet looked closely at the actual spatial data to see how much it differs. I hope we can make something work out for the WAPA map. At the very least, we will definitely include the new information in the report and make footnotes to the MUPT. Cheers, Trista T-E…..2011-0322: have some new material to update map and MUPT with; needs reviewed, assigned and incorporated…..see emails on topic…2011-0302: conference call may reveal new geologic map availability…new resource person has information on it…WERI…Dr. Janson ??
