The shale gas plays layer is a blob map of the general areas for active shale gas plays in the US. Features are attributed with basin names, shale play names and the geologic age of the plays. The polygons are constructed in a variety of ways which cannot be consistent due to the variety of data available and the maturity of each shale gas play. For example, some are outlines around active drilled areas; others are the USGS interpretation of the assessment unit, etc. The Shale Gas Basin layer shows sedimentary basins associated with the EIA active shale gas plays as of 12-5-2008. Sedimentary basin which do not have active shale gas plays as of publication date are not included in this app. Sources for the basins are mostly from the US Geological Survey and state agencies such as the WY Geological Survey. Data provided by Department of Energy, Energy Information Administration (EIA).

    The map has some useful information, but it's woefully incomplete. It's missing most of the Woodbine, Eagleford, and Austin Chalk fields in East Texas.
