description: The Oregon Active Fault Element and Template is a feature class and database of active faults compilied by the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) for inclusion in the State Geothermal Project. The Oregon Active Fault Element and Template is a compilation of Oregon's active faults in the form of a personal geodatabase, which stores tabular data in a Microsoft Access .mdb file, and an associated line feature class for spatial/geometric data. Active faults can serve as important pathways for geothermal energy/fluids and used to investigate areas which may have geothermal potential. Each active fault in the dataset is entered as a record (row) with fields (columns) containing information such as fault age, length, name, geologic unit, movement data including rate of movement, general description, and other data about the fault feature.These data are a compilation of 3,114 records from two primary fault databases; one from U.S. Geological Survey Quaternary Fault Database and the other from DOGAMI's Oregon Geologic Data Compilation (v5). DOGAMI used grant funding awarded as a sub-proposal for this work. The award was issued by the Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS) through the U.S. Department of Energy (US DoE) Geothermal Technologies Program. US DoE awarded funding to AZGS for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Public Law 111-5, US DoE Number: DE-FOA-0000109, Topic Area 3: Geothermal Data Development, Collection, and Maintenance. The Content Model for Active Faults was developed by AZGS to submit/report data to the State Geothermal Project of the American Association of State Geological Surveys' (AASG) for inclusion in the National Geothermal Data System (NGDS). DOGAMI compilied this dataset from its Oregon Geologic Data Compilation and the U.S. Geological Survey's Quaternary Fault Database; see Citation Section.
