General Description

Digital geologic quadrangle maps (1:24,000 scale) completed in the Little Rock, Arkansas area are McAlmont, North Little Rock, Pinnacle Mountain, Sweet Home, Little Rock, and Alexander. These six quadrangles were pulled onto a 1:100,000 scale base map and printed at 1:50,000 to demonstrate their usefulness and value to city and regional planners. From this type of map, planners, developers, and the public can make better decisions. Information one can gather from this map are possible geohazards, mineral resources, water resources, possible construction problems, in addition to the surface geology, structure, and description of each formation. Inferences can be drawn from these maps about construction costs, availability of water resources, location of possible landfill sites and sewage treatment plants. City and regional planners may then develop plans for their respective communities with more comprehensive spatial data allowing best management practices.
