Conference Paper: Digital Mapping Of Structurally Controlled Geothermal Features With Gps Units And Pocket Computers

Abstract
Hand-held global positioning system (GPS) units and pocket personal computers (PCs) were used to map surface geothermal features at the Bradys Hot Springs and Salt Wells geothermal systems, Churchill County, Nevada, in less time and with greater accuracy than would have been possible with conventional mapping methods. Geothermal features that were mapped include fumaroles, mud pots, warm ground, sinter, and a variety of silicified rocks. In both areas, the digital mapping was able to resolve structural patterns and details not shown on pre-existing maps. The cost of digital mapping technology can be relatively inexpensive, yet it can greatly speed the process of gathering data in the field and converting it into digital GIS-compatible formats.
