nd edition, by Stephen Marshak Chapter 11: Crags, Cracks, and Crumples: Crustal Deformation and Mountain Building Geologic Maps Geologic maps show the distribu4on of geologic features, including diFerent kinds of rocks and faults. A geologic map is usually printed on top of a regular map (called a base map) to help you locate yourself on the map. The base map is printed with light colors, so it doesn’t interfere with seeing the geologic features on the map. The geology is represented by colors, lines, and special symbols unique to geologic maps. Source: USGS
