Summary:How do you suppose people created geologic maps before the advent of photography, aviation, satellite imagery, and remote sensing? What data might have been gathered to determine the geology of an area? Imagine you’re a geoscientist in the early 1800s. You want to create a geologic map of your area. Get out your sketchpad, or a sheet of plain paper, and give it a try. Map your own back yard, school campus, or neighborhood.
