About This Publication
The mapping of this quadrangle entailed analysis of aerial photographs, review of existing mapping, and fieldwork. The topographic base was created from digital files of the Texas Natural Resources Information System (TNRIS) for the U.S. Geological Survey, Taylor, Texas, 7.5-minute topographic quadrangle map. Digital files of roads, county boundaries, drainage, and lakeshores were also obtained from TNRIS. Locations of water wells and a few petroleum-exploration wells were obtained from online databases of the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB); information pertaining to the depth and thickness of Quaternary high gravels was obtained from drillers’ logs contained within those same TWDB databases. These well-log data and surface map contacts were used to delineate contours on the base of that high gravel deposit
