The data are not appropriate as a geodetic, legal or engineering base. The data set was not and is not intended as a substitute for surveyed locations, such as can be determined by a registered Public Land Surveyor. Although useful in a GIS as a reference base layer for maps, the data set has no legal basis in the definition of boundaries or property lines.
In April 2004 edition 1.1 of the data set was transitioned to storage in an Oracle RDBMS using the ArcSDE geodatabase model. The result (this version) is designated Edition 20040422.
Edition 1.1 had one minor update from previous edition (ver. 1.0). A polygon was deleted. See process steps.

The data do not replace the need for detailed site-specific studies.
The features were imported into the ISGS SDE enterprise database following steps outlined in ISGS procedure GISDB_0009.

UNIT - Name of the geologic unit. See table below.
QUAT - Number indicating name of the geologic unit. See table below.
SYMBOL - Map symbol from the published map, corresponding to name and number of unit. See table below.
QUAL - Indicates whether or not unit is a moraine 0 - not a moraine 1 - unit is a moraine 9 - water
