The value of geologic map information in public and private decision-making (such as for the siting of landfills and highways) has repeatedly been described anecdotally, and has been demonstrated in benefit-cost analyses to reduce uncertainty and, by extension, potential costs. Two estimates of costs of statewide mapping were made, one extrapolated from Boone and Winnebago Counties ($21 million), the other estimated on the basis of differences between the Boone/Winnebago program and proposed mapping program for the State of Illinois ($55 million). Benefits of geologic information come in the form of future avoided. The California Seafloor Mapping Program (CSMP) is a cooperative program to create a comprehensive coastal and marine geologic and habitat base map series for California's State waters. Initiated in , the CSMP has collected bathymetry and backscatter data that are being turned into habitat and geologic base maps. The goal of the ISGS mapping program, begun in , is to map the entire state's geologic units, from land surface to bedrock, at a detailed scale of , Reliable, detailed information is essential to making good decisions about the complex issues affecting our state's water, land, energy supplies, and aggregate resources.
