Abstract:

The DGS, in response to the needs for efficient storage, manipulation,retrieval, and report-generating capability, has proceeded with the conversion of the paper file data base to an integrated automated geologic, hydrologic, and mineral resource management information system. It is necessary to organize data in a systematic and standardized fashion for efficient entry into the automated system. To accomplish this, the DGS has made major revisions in the data recording and filing systems.

This report contains the new DGS data schedules, describes the information that should be recorded on each schedule, and presents instructions for preparation of the schedules. The schedules are designed to make various kinds of data consistent with the input format screens utilized in the automated system.

The types of schedules described include:
1. Well
2. Water Level
3. Lithologic Log
4. Sample
5. Aquifer Test
6. Geophysical Log
7. Field Water Quality
8. Laboratory Water Quality
9. OCS Well
