A figure illustrating the status of geological mapping in Louisiana
can be downloaded from:

The published 1:100,000 scale geologic maps cover a large
part of the Pleistocene terraces and Pliocene outcrop belt.

A few of these maps can be downloaded as PDF files from:

Others can be purchased from:

1. Open-File Geologic Quadrangle Maps (1:100,000), 11 maps

http://www.lgs.lsu.e....php?section=30

2. Geologic Quadrangle Maps (1:100,000), 4 maps

3. Open-File Geologic Quadrangle Maps (1:24,000), 33 maps

4. and as part of McCulloh, R. P. and P. V. Heinrich, 2002,

As soon as the metadata is compiled, shapefiles for most of
these maps will in the future be posted online where they can
be downloaded.
