Lineage Using the ARC 'reselect' command, polygons representing sand and gravel deposits ('unit_code' = ?Qdb? ?Qsd? ?Qsh? ?Qsld? ?Qssd? ?Qsw?) were selected from MGS surficial geology coverage.

The item 'dissnum' was added, with 'islands' given a value of 0, and all other polygons given a value of 1.
ARC 'dissolve' was applied using the item 'dissnum.'
