Data Quality Overall accuracy of both the geology and geologic province data sets are based on the accuracy of the general geology coverage. Original maps are traced onto mylar and scanned at a resolution of 300 dpi. The scanned images are converted to Arc GRIDs and then to Arc Vector coverages in Lambert Conformal Conic projection. The data set is a collection of ARC/INFO coverages that are topologically consistent. Color plot in 1:2,000,000 scale was superimposed on original map in 1:2,000,000 scale and any detected errors were corrected in ARC/INFO. Generalizations on geology are made from original USGS 1:2,000,000 scale Geologic map and UNESCO 1:5,000,000 scale Geologic map of Europe, Eastern sheet. 4000 Estimated maximum ground distance error in meters. A color hard copy of the Arabian Peninsula geology at 1:2,000,000 scale is superimposed onto the original Geologic Map of the Arabian Peninsula, 1:2,000,000 scale. For the Iraq portion of the Arabian Peninsula, a color hard copy of the Iraq geology at 1:5,000,000 scale is superimposed onto the original Geologic Map of Europe, Eastern sheet, 1:5,000,000 scale.
Summary A digital map including geology, geologic provinces, oil and gas fields of the Arabian Peninsula. The Arabian Peninsula, and parts of Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Israel, and Lebanon are represented on this map.
