Are there geologic maps or publications for where I live?

Probably, although detailed geologic mapping has not been completed for the entire United States. Geologic maps at many scales, and from many sources, are listed in the National Geologic Map Database.

Geologic mapping data from all of North America are presented via the National Geologic Map Database, and a common set of geologic map standards is being developed by the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program (NCGMP) in cooperation with the North American Geologic Map Data Model Steering Committee.

The NCGMP is the primary source of funds for the production of geologic maps in the United States and provides accurate geologic maps and three-dimensional framework models that help to sustain and improve the quality of life and economic vitality of the Nation and to mitigate natural hazards. The NCGMP is congressionally mandated by the National Geologic Mapping Act of 1992.

If you don't find geologic maps for your area in this system, additional information may be available from the Association of American State Geologists, or a major library near you (especially if they can provide inter-library loan service).
