Geologic Mapping, including STATEMAP Projects
This page provides links to two active mapping projects at the WVGES: STATEMAP
and the Coalbed Mapping Project
The STATEMAP project creates new, detailed geologic maps for resource assessment, environmental studies, and land use
determinations at a scale of 1:24,000. The 2015 STATEMAP fact sheet (PDF 442 KB)
shows areas mapped under the STATEMAP program, benefits of the program to West Virginia, and a table of funding
received from the U.S. Geological Survey as well as our matching funds. The image shown below supplements the map contained within the STATEMAP fact sheet
by providing details specific to digitized map status. STATEMAP is a component of the National
Cooperative Mapping Program.

Many of the STATEMAP maps, cross sections, and reports of investigation are available as
open files. You can locate each quadrangle with our interactive topographic map index.
The overall Plan for Geologic Mapping in West Virginia (PDF, 3.76 MB) is available for review.
