MnModel Surficial Geology Landscape Model, Minnesota

The MnModel Surficial Geology Landscape Model (LANDMOD) is the product of the MnModel Phase 4 project's mosaicking of DNR-, MGS-, and MnDOT-derived regional and local surficial geology and geomorphic models. <br/><br/>No single data source covered the entire state at a scale (<1:100,000) meaningful to the MnModel project. Different models have been edge-matched where needed. Each of the mosaicked portions were categorized into the following list of data fields: Region, Region Name, Subregion, Subregion Name, Landscape, Landform, and Mantle. Some reinterpretations at and near boundaries with adjoining model segments were made to provide for a more logical transition at the mosaicked seams.

dsPurpose The purpose of this collection of data is to provide the source data used for predicting the potential for finding unknown archaeological sites early in the transportation construction planning process, so that impacts on these sites can be avoided.

This dataset is best suited for general reference only. It is not suitable for precise land measurements or ground surveys. Data are incomplete, as large areas of the state are unmapped.
