This map was created using surficial geology data, Maine lakes and rivers data, and state hillshade data from the Maine Office of GIS. This map specifically focuses on the surficial materials of Maine geology. Surficial material refers to the types of sediment that are deposited onto the bedrock from glaciers. Surficial materials maps are important for a variety of reasons including: construction planning, locating sand and gravel pits, locating suitable landfills etc.
