The Kentucky Geological Survey is preparing a series of maps of these quadrangles showing oil and gas drilling activity and results. The maps are printed at a scale of 1:100,000, using GIS software, and are periodically updated. To date, maps have been released for the Tompkinsville, Evansville, Hazard, Corbin , and Middlesboro quadrangles. A printed copy of the Pikeville quadrangle map was previously released. These maps are useful for oil and gas exploration and development and are becoming increasingly important in assessing environmental issues. Individual map components may be downloaded for compiling your own maps.

Summary maps at a scale of 1:1,000,000 are available.
