GIS Data for Geologic Map of Precambrian Metasedimentary Rocks of The Medicine Bow Mountains, Albany and Carbon Counties, Wyoming

January 11, 2023

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release provides a digital geospatial database for the geologic map of Precambrian metasedimentary rocks of the Medicine Bow Mountains, Albany and Carbon Counties, Wyoming (Houston and Karlstrom, 1992). Attribute tables and geospatial features (points, lines and polygons) conform to the Geologic Map Schema (GeMS, 2020) and represent the geologic map plates as published at a scale of 1:50,000. The 358,697-acre map area includes the geologically complex Medicine Bow Mountains located 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of Laramie in southeastern Wyoming.
