Seven new geologic maps, currently in drafting but otherwise complete, represent the products of the 2011-2012 field season.
Geologic map production begins in the field. Geologists spend several months traversing pre-defined areas of Arizona’s landscape to collect geologic information about that area.
In a jargon-free article written for the general public, former Arizona Geological Survey Director Larry Fellows summarizes the nature and societal scope of geologic hazards in Arizona.

Ninety-five miles southeast of Tucson, Arizona, and partway up the steep slope of Montezuma Peak, lies Coronado Cave.
Over the past decade, vast new territories of digital map data and services have emerged. The landscape of digital products now includes digital topographic maps – current and historical, atlases, geologic and physical geography maps, weather maps, political maps, soil maps, biome maps, and more.
In this article, we shine a spotlight on some of the richer digital map and map service providers, with an emphasis on those that serve Arizona map products. Note: This is not an exhaustive list; our goal was to finger major map products and service providers for Arizona.
