The purpose of the GIS and Information Management Project is to support the geospatial component of the Mineral Resources Program (MRP). The project is organized under the Geology, Geophysics, and Geochemistry Science Center in Denver, Colorado. The project provides a wide array of GIS support to MRP as well as assistance publishing research results, new and legacy data, and web enabled services. The project facilitates all aspects of the data life cycle with the goal of effectively managing geospatial information from “cradle to grave”. GIS support to MRP projects encompasses acquiring, compiling, processing, analyzing, modeling, visualizing, documenting, reviewing, publishing and archiving of geospatial products. The project develops, and stewards national-scale data layers considered foundational to MRP and conducts research to streamline workflows and to create innovative map products considered integral to MRPs role in 21st Century science.
This poster highlights a few of the many MRP projects the GIS Project has collaborated with researchers on in the past 5 years. Geospatial products range in coverage from local to national-scale and span the breadth of MRP research. The authors note how published geospatial products often provide an important link to new research and program development in MRP.
