'Geological Structures and Maps is exactly what the title says - an introduction to the geometry of simple structures and what they look like on geologic maps this book is refreshingly clear and to-the-point.' Journal of Geological Education5/5(1). Geological maps show the distribution of various types of bedrock in an area and consist of a topographic map that is shaded, or colored to show where different rock units occur at or just below the ground surface. Lines on the map are drawn to show the boundaries between each of the rock units. An Introduction to Geological Structures and Maps th Edition by George M.

Care is taken to define terms rigorously and in a way that is in keeping with current professional usage. Photographs of structures in the field are included to emphasize the similarities between structures at outcrop scale and on the scale of a map. This book is designed to be read without tutorial help alongside fieldwork. Worked examples are given to assist with the solution of the s: 1.
