Information, Data and Science.

Some of the endless resources avaialble online. If there is a good one that should be here – please get in touch – the only criteria is that it has unrestricted access and use.

The objective is to highlight resources that allow mixed-experience and mixed-training geoscientist improve skills and understanding in key topic areas and provide access to high quality data and geoscience.

Courses || Data repositries || Deposit Models || Events Calendars || Exploration and Mining Cycle || Financial Models || Geochemical Methods || Geophysical Methods || Journals and Papers (Open) || Lecture Notes || Mapping || Mineralogy and Microscopy || Palaeontology || Professional Groups and Surveys || Regolith || Reporting Codes || Shares and Stocks || Social Licence to Operate (SLO) || Stratigraphy || Structure || Teaching

Data repositries

  • SEDAC – http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/
    • Socioeconomic data and application centre.
    • coarse global free GIS data – from fertilizer applications in agriculture to global infant mortality rate by state/province.
  • Open Topgraphy – http://www.opentopography.org/
    • Where can we find LiDAR data?
  • United Nations Environmental program – http://geodata.grid.unep.ch/
    • 500 geospatial themes
    • Tip: Click advanced. Select “Geospatial Data Sets” so that only GIS data will be filtered.
  • European Space Agency – https://scihub.copernicus.eu/dhus/#/home
    • Sentinal Data Hub
    • highest spatial resolution available to the public for free – 10-meter resolution satellite data
    • Sentinel 2 data has 11 spectral bands including near-infrared

Social Licence to Operate (SLO)

  • PDAC e3 Plus – http://www.pdac.ca/programs/e3-plus

    • e3 Plus is an online information resource to help companies exploring for minerals improve their social, environmental and health and safety performance.

Stratigraphy

  • International Commission on Stratigraphy – http://stratigraphy.org/
    • Defines global units (systems, series, and stages) of the International Chronostratigraphic Chart that, in turn, are the basis for the units (periods, epochs, and age) of the International Geologic Time Scale; thus setting global standards for the fundamental scale for expressing the history of the Earth.

Teaching

There are thousands of corses and lecture notes online – but this one tries to map out the outcomes of geoscience courses, and is well supported.
