Mgscode

In general MGSCODEs have the form 44wxyz where:              
  w = 0:00 miscellaneous        
      x = 0:00      
          y = 4:00 misc. aquifer codes
          y = 5:00 groundwater pollution
susceptibility codes              
  w = 1:00          
  w = 2:00 bedrock geologic codes        
  w = 3:00 surficial geologic codes        
      x = 0:00      
      x = 1:00 Des Moines Lobe deposits    
      x = 2:00 Superior Lobe deposits    
      x = 3:00 Grantsburg sub-lobe deposits    
      x = 4:00 K.Harris litho/strat unit codes    
      x = 5:00 SWRA mapping units (C.Patterson)    
  w = 7:00 miscellaneous point features (no rotation of feature)        
  w = 8:00 structural measurement codes; planar or linear features        
meas.@ point;              
      includes attributes indicating strike/dip or         
trend/plunge; symbol will be rotated as needed.              
  w = 9:00 linear features/line codes        
               
Codes used as MGSCODEs that are not 440000 series numbers are taken from some              
other source, such as the USGS DLG (minor) attribute codes ( 421 for lakes;              
412 for rivers; etc.).
