Discussion Session -- "Recommended citations for unpublished GIS files"
Moderated by Dave Soller (U.S. Geological Survey).
Increasingly, unpublished GIS files and related information are being derived from pre-existing publications. Soon thereafter, or perhaps many years in the future, these files are used in new publications. How can we try to ensure that not only the unpublished GIS file, but also its source(s) of information, are informatively cited in new publications? It's critical to our science that years from now, the original and authoritative source of all cited information can be found. This brief session will introduce the challenge and offer some suggestions. If warranted, further discussion will be held during the Wednesday session.

Discussion Session -- "Acquiring high-quality digital base maps"
Moderated by Randy Orndorff, Allen Crider, and Dave Soller (USGS).
Geologic mapping projects depend on high quality digital base maps. With the move away from paper topographic maps and mylar hard copies, significantly more effort is now needed to acquire a usable base map. There are many sources for digital base maps, many methods of creating them, and uneven quality. Easy access to standardized, high-quality digital base map layers (perhaps including, but not limited to, LIDAR) is a critical requirement of geologic mapping projects. This session will address required elements and technical requirements of products to be developed by The National Map and other sources, and will attempt to formalize guidance to management.
