Description:
Abstract:
This data set depicts a structural geologic map on the top of the Devonian age Onondaga Limestone or equivalent, West Virginia (datum:  sea level).
Note:  Faults and folds associated with the Onondaga structure contours are provided in separate data sets.
Purpose:
The structural geologic map of the Onondaga Limestone and equivalent units provides basic geologic data for West Virginia.

Attribute_Definition:
Line Style:  The sort of contour line  (i.e. solid, hachured, segmented, segmented hachured) shown on the original map.  The line sort indicates the amount of confidence, in general, between what is shown on the map as compared to the actual situation.  In addition, in some cases, the line sort shows the low side of the contour.

DISCLAIMER REGARDING THE RELEASE OF DATA AND USER REQUIREMENTS

The West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey (WVGES) makes basic data available to the public under the following conditions:

1. We believe the data from WVGES to have been generated and assembled with a high degree of professionalism, accuracy, and precision for the purposes for which they were originally intended. In this context, "data" refer to numerical and textual data (such as in the "pipeline" application), digitial data (such as .las files), digital images (such as digital photographs), scanned records (such as completion reports), and spatial data (such as shapefiles). Some data have been compiled from other sources and the WVGES accepts no responsibility for any inaccuracies in those data. Therefore, we cannot and do not, either implicitly or explicitly, guarantee the accuracy, precision, or completeness of the data.

2. Neither the WVGES nor its staff members are liable or responsible for any damage or loss resulting from the use of the data or from inaccuracies contained in the data.

3. These data are provided as a service to the State of West Virginia through the WVGES for the purpose of research and development efforts. Final use of these data is the sole responsibility of the user.

4. We encourage you to report any problems, inconsistencies, or errors noted in using these data to the Information Services Program, so that we can correct them and provide even better service.
