Geotiff Maps of the Sheep Range, suitable for use with a cellphone or tablet in the field. Since cell phone coverage might be spotty, these should be downloaded prior to going to the field.
These can be displayed with any mobile software that can display Geotiffs. This will put your GPS track on the map, and allow you to see your location as you hike around the area. We have used:
Guth, P.L., 2016, Using 3D GIS to reveal extensional fault and megabreccia geometry, west side of the Sheep Range, Nevada: Geological Society of America Abstracts with Programs,Vol. 48, No. 7, doi: 10.1130/abs/2016AM-287418. [Geological Society of American annual meeting, Denver, CO, 25-28 Sept 2016]
KMZ files of the geology to support French and Guth (2016). You should be careful not to blow these up too much; they were mapped at 1:24K or smaller scales, and the current high resolution imagery reveals the improvements possible with 1 m imagery.
