Data Source: EFI EUROFOREST Portal
METADATA
TitleOneGeology
CreatorOneGeology
DescriptionOneGeology makes geological map data available using Web Map Service technology. It is planned as a distributed map service – i.e. the geological map data are served mostly on a national basis by individual geological surveys and other bodies (e.g. the polar and marine surveys and research bodies) to a web portal and as such will be frequently updated and improved by them and reflect the most up-to-date data available. Some 117 nations around the world are currently participating in OneGeology (as of June 2011). Each nation is represented by its Geological Survey. OneGeology is supported by UNESCO and six other international umbrella bodies: International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS), International Consortium of Geological Surveys (ICOGS), EuroGeoSurveys, Commission for the Geological Map of the World (CGMW), International Steering Committee for Global Mapping (ISCGM), International Lithosphere Program.
