The project's aims are to:

  • create dynamic digital geological map data for the world.
  • make existing geological map data accessible in whatever digital format is available in each country. The target scale is 1:1 million but the project will be pragmatic and accept a range of scales and the best available data.
  • transfer know-how to those who need it, adopting an approach that recognises that different nations have differing abilities to participate.
  • the initiative is truly multilateral and multinational and will be carried out under the umbrella of several global organisations.
