The 18th Annual Workshop on Digital Mapping Techniques (DMT '18) will be held June 1-4, at John M. Clayton Hall Conference Center at the University of Delaware, Newark, Delaware. Each year, these meetings have served a critical role for the geosciences, fostering informal discussion and exchange of technical information among scientists, cartographers, and GIS specialists, primarily from State and Federal agencies, who are using digital techniques to create, publish, manage, and analyze geologic maps and data.
Three datasets are included: the official state boundary line, the county boundary lines, and the land/shore outline. These geospatial data files comprise the bounding lines relating to the political boundary delineation for the State of Delaware as well as the shoreline taken from the 2002 orthophotos of Delaware.
Elevation contours at 2 foot intervals for the State of Delaware were produced for New Castle and Kent Counties based on the 2007 LIDAR) and for Sussex County (based on the 2005 LIDAR.) Data are in line shapefile format.
This vector data set contains the rock unit polygons for the surficial geology in the Delaware Coastal Plain covered by DGS Geologic Map Series No. 17 (Harbeson quadrangle). The complex geologic history of the surficial units of the Harbeson Quadrangle is that of deposition of the Beaverdam Formation and its subsequent modification by erosion and deposition related to sea-level fluctuations during the Pleistocene. The geology is further complicated by periglacial activity that produced dune deposits and Carolina Bays scattered throughout the map area.

IS7 is a foldout brochure that briefly discusses the background and current activities of the DGS. Specifically, the following major programs are listed: Geology, Hydrology, Cartographic Information, Geologic Hazards, Seismograph Network, Outer Continental Shelf, Mineral Resources, Well Records and Sample Library, Publications, and Joint-funded Programs.
The Delaware Geological Survey Cartographic Information Center has made the DGS a focal point for questions concerning the availability of all types of aerial photography, thematic maps, planimetric maps, topographic maps, historic maps, LANDSAT imagery, space imagery, side looking aerial radar imagery (SLAR), and geodetic control. Sources of maps, charts, aerial photography, boundary mark information, and vertical geodetic control can be obtained for your area of interest within the State through the Center's computer-searchable data bases. In addition, through the Center's affiliation with the U. S. Geological Survey's National Cartographic Information Center (NCIC) in Reston, Virginia, we can locate all cartographic materials covering the United States produced by federal agencies.
