Maps & Guides
Over the years, Stanford graduate students and professors have mapped many parts of the western states. Some of our geologic mapping projects have been funded by the USGS EDMAP Program and the U.S. National Parks Service. The entire northern and southern Snake Range, including the Mount Moriah Wilderness area in the northern Snake Range and the Great Basin National Park in the southern Snake Range have been mapped and are available to the public. We are working on making our unpublished maps and field trip guides available, some can be viewed below.
