If you need a more up-to-date map, or paper copies of individual Maryland counties, please see the on-line List of Publications for geologic and topographic maps of Maryland counties. The 1968 Geologic Map of Maryland is out of print and we no longer distribute that map.
These images were scanned from a paper copy of the out-of-print and outdated 1968 Geologic
Map of Maryland. Due to the age of this map, these images do not necessarily represent an
accurate interpretation of currently accepted geologic theory. Because the projection of
the original map was distorted during reproduction, and the paper medium is not stable,
these images do not meet any cartographic standards. Therefore geographic or Cartesian coordinates
cannot be applied to these images, and georeferencing is not possible.
These images are for illustration purposes only. Do not use these documents for GIS, navigation, legal purposes, surveying, or anything else other than document illustrations. They were created only to illustrate our publications and are not accurate enough to be used for any other purposes. You may use them as illustrations only, and you must give proper credit to Maryland Geological Survey when using these maps.
A new edition of the Geologic Map of Maryland is in the planning stages but will not be available for some time. Hopefully this presentation will fill the gap for some kind of general geologic information about the state, even if it is neither up-to-date nor geographically accurate.
Please check back occasionally for additions and corrections to this
online map series.
