    I am a retired indexer. Some general advice about choosing keywords: I try to think about what the image is about, and what concepts I would be searching for that the image exemplifies. I try to describe the image, or contents of the table, or concepts the map is conveying. Keywords I would use for this map would include: geology; shales; geological strata; Rhayader pale shales; Gwastaden group; Caban group. I wouldn't list every word in the map in the keywords.
