The Iowa Geological Survey is engaged in preparing a geological map of Iowa, upon a scale of half an inch to the mile. That is, a half inch on the map represents a .mile upon the surface of the ground. This map is issued in a series of sheets, each covering a county. The sheets are printed as fast as they are prepared. Each is accompanied by a text forming a report upon the area represented by the map, describing its surface features. its geological structure, and its mineral resources. The sheets and accompanying descriptive texts issued in any one year are bound together to form, for that year, the annual report of the Survey.
