Arrowhead Ave., San Bernardino, CA Jerry Lewis High Desert Government Center • Smoke Tree St., SuiteHesperia, CA Introduction California’s geologic history is very complex, most of the state did not exist as a coherent piece of the earth’s crust until relatively recently in geologic terms.

Rock formations that are now adjacent often have very different histories. Some of the larger collisions were associated with major episodes of tectonic activity—intrusive and extrusive volcanic.

The California Geological Survey's interactive geological map allows users to identify the different rock types and fault lines throughout California. In addition to the web viewer, the GIS data can be downloaded for further use.
