Lithologic Database

The Florida Geological Survey (FGS) lithologic database contains more than 5,000 lithologic descriptions of cores and cuttings from wells located throughout Florida. These descriptions are coded and stored in ASCII files by county. The self-extracting file, LITHPROG.EXE, contains a program (FGSLOGS.EXE) that will decode, display, and print coded descriptions.

This page provides information about downloading the self-extracting files containing the program and data. 

The FGSLOGS Program

This is a DOS application. LITHPROG.EXE  contains the program file FGSLOGS.EXE and an ASCII-format user manual (FGSLOGS.TXT). To unfold any of the self-extracting files (*.EXE), download the file, and double click on the file name.

The Data Files

The data files (*.DAT) are stored in compressed files grouped by region. Each region corresponds to all counties located within the State's five Water Management Districts. Some counties are found in more than one compressed file, however, there is no difference in the *.DAT file for duplicated counties (i.e., ALACHUA.DAT in SRWMD.ZIP is the same as ALACHUA.DAT in SJRWMD.ZIP). The following is a directory of data files compressed within each *.ZIP file. Click on the file name to download the file:

Tips and Tricks for the FGSLOGS Lithologic Database Program

  1. All program and data files must reside in the same folder on your hard drive. Create a folder for these before you download, or transfer the files into their own folder after they are downloaded.

  2. The folder you create (in Step 1, above) must be no more than 8 characters long (the old DOS restriction)

  3. All data files must be extracted from the zipped archive file (*.zip) before the program will recognize them. Be sure and extract them into the same folder as the program files.

  4.  When the program is launched, it will first ask for the path for the data files. Be sure and include a backslash (\ ) after the folder name where the data files reside. The program will not accept the path name without that last backslash
  5. Example: Path: C:\Litholog\
