Geographic information system-based virtual geotechnical database
"The St. Louis Metropolitan area is the focus the U.S. Geological Survey's Earthquake Hazard Program's plan for assessing and reducing the likely risks of an earthquake likely emanating from New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ), which is the most active seismic zone in the Midwestern United States. The St. Louis Metropolitan area consists of three counties in Missouri and four in Illinois, which are divided by the state boundary along the Mississippi River. Both of the state's respective geological surveys have produced their own geologic maps and datasets, employing dissimilar geodata information and systems, with differing map units, map scales, and storage formats, with data stored in hard copy (analog) or digital formats. This combined dissimilar geodata from both states and integrate them into a single Virtual Geotechnical Database (VGDB) in an accepted Geographic Information System (ArcGIS), which can be used to retrieve subsurface data and perform an array of spatial analyses. The VGDB will be made available to the general public and other researchers, and is intended to promote more standardization of geologic interpretations between Missouri and Illinois"--Abstract, page iii.
