Atlas Series


Description: Below is a list of the reports in the atlas series published by the Pennsylvania Geological Survey. These technical reports cover the geology and mineral resources of areas of approximately 50 to 200 square miles (one to four 7.5-minute quadrangles). Most of them were published as books with at least one large-scale, full-color geologic map. A 175b was an online publication, and A 189b was published on CD–ROM. More detailed bibliographic information (including the types of maps and map scales) is given in the Survey’s list of publications, Pennsylvania Geological Publications.

Disclaimer: Each user is responsible for the appropriate application of Pennsylvania Geological Survey reports and data as explained in our official disclaimer.

Availability: All titles in the list below are active links, and clicking a title will initiate the download of a ZIP file that was prepared for the report.  In addition, all atlas reports except for A 175b can be borrowed from the Survey library or possibly from one of our repository libraries. If you are not near one of these libraries,  you can go to a local library and ask the librarian to arrange an interlibrary loan.

GIS Data: A 189b includes ArcInfo export files, ArcGIS shapefiles, and georeferenced map images (GeoTIFFs). The ZIP file for A 175b includes the associated ArcGIS dataset (as feature classes in a geodatabase and as shapefiles) for the two maps that constitute the report.
