Science Base Geologic Sections Collection Map

Before curation, VDOT Geologic Sections Collection (2014). This collection is now scanned and available electronically from National Digital Catalog.

Since 2007, the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program (NGGDPP) has awarded grants to State geological surveys to support the preservation of physical geological specimens, reports, maps and other documents in State archives. The Division of Geology and Mineral Resources (DGMR) has been the recipient of these funds for 7 of the last 8 years.

With NGGDPP support, DGMR developed a comprehensive process of inventorying, cataloging and disseminating the collections using the VGIC (Virginia Geologic Information Catalog) and our Interactive Map. This is an on-going effort.

The metadata associated with each collection is also made available in the National Digital Catalog, Science Base. To-date DGMR has uploaded 104,000 records to the National Digital Catalog.
