Previous mineral-resource assessment data compilation - georeferenced tiff images

This zip file contains georeferenced tiff images of mineral potential maps and their associated metadata. These images are duplicates of the images found in the geodatabases/raster mosaic datasets. Descriptive information about the images is listed in the All_georef_images_descriptive_information_table.csv file. The georeferenced images were clipped to the extent of the map and all explanatory...

Table containing descriptive data for georeferenced map images

The .csv table is part of a dataset package that was compiled for use as mineral assessment guidance in the Sagebrush Mineral-Resource Assessment project (SaMiRA). Mineral potential maps from previous mineral-resource assessments which included areas of the SaMiRA project areas were georeferenced. The images were clipped to the extent of the map and all explanatory text, gathered from map e...
