This week we’re pleased to tell you that our trial of Geofacets was successful and we have now subscribed to the database.
Geofacets allows you to find maps in the geological journal literature by search terms or by geographic region. It will be especially helpful for students and staff in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering.
Over 550,000 maps can be found in journals from publishers including: AAPG, AGU, Elsevier, Geological Society of London, SEG, SEPM and Wiley. Links to the full text of articles on publishers websites are included (Imperial subscription-dependent) as well as read-only PDFs of all articles.
Most maps are georeferenced and data can be integrated with tools such as ArcGIS, GoogleEarth and Petrel.
