A Geoheritage Tour of Southeastern Arizona

The Arizona Geological Survey has just released an interactive webpage which highlights sites of historic and geologic interest in Southeastern Arizona. You can access the site here: https://arcg.is/1fGub0

The site includes geologic features and related sites – museums and mining communities – organized under three tabs:

  • Within 15-mile radius of Tucson
  • From 15- to 75-mile radius
  • From 75- to 200-mile radius.

To navigate, mouse over the thumbnail pictures and the location will show up on the map. Clicking the thumbnails will bring up a short explanation and links to geological reports and maps.

AZGS says this is a work in progress and welcomes comments: azgs-info@email.arizona.edu or pearthre@email.arizona.edu

AZGS is working on a similar page for the Phoenix area.
