The Vermont Geological Survey at the Agency of Natural Resources, the United States Geological Survey, and University of Vermont have participated since the early 1980’s in a cooperative venture to produce the new bedrock geological map of Vermont. The map has a 2011 publication date which is 150 years (sesquicentennial) since the first 1861 geologic map of Vermont and 50 years since the 1961 Centennial Geologic Map of Vermont.
The map incorporates 30 years of new approaches to geologic mapping and the technologies that support it. As a fundamental data layer, it is a show piece of the present understanding of Vermont geology. The map will be the geoscience base for years to come, helping us to address Vermont’s environmental issues and informing our interaction with and protection of our natural resources.
