Project Objectives

The main objective of this project was to archive and catalog existing geophysical data acquired in the past by the old Branch of Geophysics and other USGS organizations. A new focus of this version, as well as continuing many of the previous tasks, is to update databases with newly collected data. In the case of the magnetics database that involves accessing these airborne surveys and merging them into the recently created compilation publications for the states and North America.

The project focuses on four areas: the magnetic database, gravity database, airborne electromagnetic surveys, and the Spatial Data Delivery Project. The availability of these digital datasets and the relatively current status of them will allow the scientific community to have access to information at a minimal cost which will be useful in research and development.
