Conference Paper: Geothermal Resources Of Utah-2001 Description Of A Digital Atlas For Utah'S Geothermal Resources

Abstract
In response to increasing interest in renewable energy sources in Utah, the Utah Geological Survey, in cooperation with other state agencies, is completing work on a new, interactive, digital publication based upon geographic information system (GIS) technology. Geothermal Resources of Utah-2001, which will be published on compact disk (CD), uses data derived from publicly available reports and data sets. Covering the state's geothermal resources, the CD contains technical information on geothermal resources in Utah for scientists and engineers, but is also descriptive and interactive enough for general public use. Upon completion, the digital publication will contain (1) documents describing geothermal resource areas in Utah; (2) a 3,000-record database of thermal wells and springs; (3) digital maps of geothermal resources; (4) geothermal, geologic, geographic, CUI tural, and infrastructure-related spatial data (ArcView7) files; and (5) software to construct and view various GIs themes, maps, images, and reports. This paper describes the overall process of constructing the digital publication, and provides an overview of the structure and contents of the CD.
