      The Driftless Area is a region in southwestern Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, and the extreme northwestern corner of Illinois, of the American region escaped the flattening effects of glaciation during the last ice age and is consequently characterized by steep, forested ridges, deeply carved river valleys, and karst geology characterized by spring-fed.

As the glaciers retreated the load was deposited in chaotic fashion, leaving hills, gravel beds and shallow lakes.

Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota form the northernmost tier of states in the Old Northwest. They all bound the upper Great Lakes (Lakes Superior, Michigan and Huron).

Their abundant waters empty east into the St. Lawrence river and south into the Mississippi. (The waters of much of northwestern Minnesota follow a different course, emptying north into Hudson Bay.).This project is mostly focused on Wisconsin but may include some sites of interest in adjacent states including Michigan (especially the Upper Peninsula), Iowa, and Minnesota.

These areas are well-known for outdoor beauty. Those not overly familiar with geology might think, "Pretty? Yes, but is the geology really that interesting?".The Michigan Geological Survey's GIS website hosts interactive maps of the surface and bedrock geology of Michigan.

The geological maps can be overlain on street, topographic or aerial photographic maps. The GIS data used to create these maps can be purchased on the website for further use and analysis.
