Geological Society of America
Elsevier and the Geological Society of America (GSA), one of the largest and most prestigious societies serving geoscience professionals worldwide, have integrated over 80,000 geological maps from GSA's market-leading journals and publications into Geofacets. Each peer-reviewed map is downloadable, accompanied by metadata and provides source information, including abstract and full-text PDF. Over 65,000 maps are georeferenced for easy integration into exploration projects. Newly published maps will be continuously added for access to the latest information.
This collaboration adds essential regional data for strategically key areas, including North America, to Geofacets and further enables the rapid discovery and integration of peer-reviewed maps into exploration projects, geologic models and analyses – helping upstream oil and gas companies to enhance internal knowledge, increase exploration team productivity and efficiency, and reduce uncertainty and exploration risk.
