Originally published in the 1997 Ohio Geological Society Technical Symposium, this paper gives a summary of the conversion of the township oil- and gas-well location maps to a geographic information system (GIS). Approximately 220,000 oil- and gas-well locations were digitally captured from over 1,300 township well-location maps. Currently, the authors are working on a more extensive final report of the project, which is scheduled to be published. In the meantime, this paper provides the details concerning the GIS conversion of the township oil- and gas-well location maps.
