The gas potential of the New Albany Shale in the Illinois Basin is profiled on this CD-ROM. Featured on the disc are updated maps of the New Albany Shale (Devonian and Mississippian) in Geographic Information System (GIS) shapefile format, as well as 1991-1997 digital data for cores, an updated bibliography, and a database of more than 5,000 New Albany wells. Data fields in the well database include well permit number (identification number), UTM X, UTM Y, latitude, longitude, New Albany Shale top (elevation) in feet, thickness in feet, source of the data, data type, and pick type. Map plates include elevation of the top; thickness; average initial potential for the gas fields; mean random vitrinite reflectance; and locations of cores of the New Albany Shale. Stratigraphic cross-sections illustrating the distribution of the New Albany Shale members in the three-state area are included. Database tables are in dBase III format, which can be viewed by, and imported into, many spreadsheet and database programs. The ArcExplorer software program is included on the CD-ROM for viewing the GIS files. The map files can also be used with other standard industry mapping software.

The maps on this CD show the locations of oil, gas, service wells, and dry and abandoned wells on a basis of data collected by the Survey's Geological Records Unit. Each map includes county, township, towns, section lines, roads and symbols showing well status; some maps include oil and gas field names. These maps are generally three townships by three ranges in coverage. Well data updated January 1, 2014.

This attractive revision of the continually popular Guide
features photographs (including eight pages of stunning,
full-color fossil photographs); additional fossil drawings
and plates; an updated geologic time chart; and additional
references for further readings. A great companion to the
Guide to Rocks and Minerals of Illinois and the
Geoscience Education Series 16.
Wayne Frankie. 2004. 69 pp.
Rock hounds from amateur to science teacher are sure to be
interested in this comprehensive reference on the state’s
rocks and minerals. More than 40 color plates display
excellent examples of rock types ranging from fluorite
(the state mineral) to the world-renowned geodes of
western Illinois. The photographs are accompanied by
detailed descriptions of both common and very unusual
rocks and minerals in Illinois. Useful identification flow
charts and keys help the reader identify their specimens.
In addition, the guide summarizes the basic geology of
Illinois and discusses the physical properties of rocks
and minerals, ways to collect and identify samples, and
the importance of rocks and minerals to society.
