The Arizona Geological Survey's Geologic Map Database for Aggregate Resource Assessment in the Phoenix, Arizona Metropolitan Area and Surrounding Regions provides valuable information for resource development and land use planning. The database is an integrated product with shapefiles and other digital data. The primary purpose of this database is to depict geologic units that have been and are being exploited for aggregate resources in a uniform and fairly simple manner. 

The database provides information appropriate for use by planners and local governments who need to include aggregate resources in their land management planning, as mandated by Arizona state law. The map database can also be used to evaluate potential future resources.
