LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Geological Survey at the University of Kentucky has unveiled its latest project - the completion of one phase of geologic mapping of Kentucky.
The new phase has made Kentucky's geological maps all digital. They're expected to be useful in education as well as industry, including oil, gas and development.
State Geologist Jim Cobb says the maps provide information that helps produce resources, protect groundwater and the environment, stabilize foundations and infrastructure and avoid hazards.
The maps are available on the Web at no cost or hard copies can be ordered. Officials also announced a mapping application available to smartphone and tablet users at http://kgs.uky.edu/kgsmap/mobile/kgsgeoserver .
