The data files are from the fourth CD-ROM of a four CD-ROM set documenting and supporting the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) World Petroleum Assessment 2000–Description and Results report.  The fourth CD-ROM contains archival data and supporting software that permit the user to query databases and do further analysis.

Files are included for many of the tables used in this report, most of the map data and their metadata files, and a number of ArcExplorer and Arcview projects. Most of the data table files are tab-delimited text files, usable in spreadsheet and data base software.   The map data are in several formats for use in digital mapping software.
