Description:
Abstract:
This dataset describes faults and structural features of the Caribbean region (Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Martinique, Mexico, Montserrat, Netherlands Antilles, Nicaragua, Panama, Puerto Rico, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos Islands, United States, Venezuela, and the Virgin Islands (named countries may not be completely shown on map)).
Purpose:
To delineate geologic structural features and fault types in Open File Report 97-470-K Map Showing Geology, Oil and Gas Fields, and Geologic Provinces of the Caribbean Region, which was compiled as a reference for the U.S. Geological Survey World Energy Project assessment of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources of the world. This dataset was used to produce maps in both ESRI ArcMap 8.3 and Adobe Acrobat PDF formats. Files were exported from geodatabase feature class to ESRI shapefile and ArcInfo export formats for use in other applications.
Supplemental_Information:
In many offshore areas and in some onshore areas, faults shown are based on subsurface drill or seismic data and may not reach the surface.

Offshore structural features are interpreted from a combination of seismic reflection data and analysis of bathymetric features. Where track control is sparse, structural features have been plotted approximately normal to track direction. Thus, true strikes of structural features may vary considerably from those shown on map.

Scanning of source map, georeferencing, digitizing, attributing, editing and preparation of geodatabase feature class - Christopher D. French

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Horizontal positional accuracy was not formally quantified. Some details about the scanning and referencing process along with errors are stated below.

1) Original source map was provided in two plates at a scale of 1:2,500,000. Each plate was scanned at 300 dpi in RGB color mode. Adobe Photoshop 6.0 was used to merge east and west images together at edges. Some discrepancies were noticed on edge match. Edge mismatch was no greater than 500 m in a few areas, while good matches were found elsewhere. Discrepancies were averaged while digitizing.

2) A vector dataset orginating from the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) Digital Chart of the World (DCW) series was available for georeferencing. This dataset is known to have a nominal scale of 1:1,000,000 and was available as a shapefile from the United States Geological Survey, Digital Data Series DDS-62-A Global GIS Database: Digital Atlas of Central and South America.

3) ArcMap 8.3 georeferencing tool was used to establish control points and reference merged image. Original maps were provided in Mercator projection with true scale at 19 degrees north latitude. Attempts were made to transform the reference shapefile to the stated projection for georeferencing, but major errors existed along southern edges of map. A geographic coordinate system (WGS_1984) was used with more success. 57 control points were established to perform a 3rd order polynomial transformation. Other transformation methods were attempted along with other control point placement, but resulted in more error. A root mean square (RMS) error of 1611.8 m was recorded.

4) Discrepancies were anticipated between source map shorelines and country boundaries because of scale difference. Other distortions may have been inherent in the source maps. Overall dimensions of map fit well at desired display scale of 1:2,500,000. Discrepancies in shoreline were random and variable, rarely exceeding 3,500 m.
