GIS Data and Databases
-A +A

Here you will find geologic data in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other formats. Most of the data provided here are in the ESRI ArcGIS 10.0 or 9.3.1 file geodatabase format. If you do not own GIS software that can use the geodatabase, ESRI provides ArcGIS Explorer, free software that is capable of viewing these data. Unfortunately we cannot offer data in shapefile format at this time. There are several open-source GIS software packages that can convert geodatabases into shapefile format.

Much of this data is also downloadable from our Geologic Information Portal
