How do I find faults on Geologic Maps? I am trying to digitize faults but do not know what to look for. Please help!

Mapping Center Answer:

If you are trying to digitize faults from an existing map, you just need to refer to the legend to determine which symbols represent the faults (there are many kinds of faults). If you are digitizing from imagery, than you probably need to consult with a geologist to advise you how to interpret the imagery.
