Open-File Reports


Description: Below are lists of open-file reports published by the Pennsylvania Geological Survey. Open-file reports are informal releases that have not gone through an editorial review process; they have, however, received a technical review by at least one (and commonly two) bureau staff member(s).

Open-file reports cover a variety of geologic topics, including bedrock and surficial geologic maps, and maps pertaining to sinkholes and karst-related features. More detailed bibliographic information (including the types of maps and map scales found in many of these reports) is given in the Survey’s list of publications, Pennsylvania Geological Publications.

Abbreviations for open-file reports published before 2004, and a few of the reports published in 2005 and 2006, have a prefix of “OF.” In 2004, the bureau began categorizing the open-file series by prefix and number

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 lists below are active links, and clicking a title will either initiate the download of a ZIP file that was prepared for the report or will open a web page for the report.

GIS Data: The ZIP files for all of the open-file bedrock and surficial geologic map reports (OFBM and OFSM) include ArcGIS shapefiles and feature classes of data that were used to create the report maps. In addition, OFGG 05–01.1 includes ArcGIS shapefiles and georeferenced images, OFGG 11–01.0 and OFOG 14–01.0 include ArcGIS feature classes and shapefiles, and OFMR 11–01.1 has an associated interactive map from which ArcGIS layers can be downloaded.

Georeferenced images of the Wellsboro and Towanda surficial geologic maps, which could be imported into GIS software, are included in the ZIP files for OF 97–02 and OF 97–03, respectively. Tabular (Excel or Access) latitude-longitude values are included with point data in OF 00–01, OF 00–02, OFOG 07–01.1, OFOG 11–01.1, and OFMI 11–01.0, making it possible to add those data to a GIS project.
