Description: This layer contains data describing active faults derived from the USGS faults and folds database of the U.S. with focus on faults and folds within the state of Texas. The data were compiled by the Texas Bureau of Economic Geology for the National Geothermal Data System. The data table includes general information on the location of the fault, geologic setting, position accuracy, description and displacement. Citations are included in the dataset. The FeatureURI for a particular fault is the cross-referencing link (foreign key) used to associate the fault with web based information on the details of the fault including pictures or other information, specific to one feature. The data is displayed using the NDGS Standard color scheme for Quaternary faults. Layer files containing specifications for the symbology for these data layers can be found on page 16 of the PDF http://ngmdb.usgs.gov/fgdc_gds/geolsymstd/fgdc-geolsym-sec02.pdf. The original data and metadata can be viewed or downloaded from the USGIN Repository at http://repository.stategeothermaldata.org/repository/resource/6e84ef507102d99c8d5b44d3c22adb1f/.
