EUROPEAN RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE ON SOLID EARTH

Objectives

The Thematic Core Service on “Geological Data and Modelling” set a series of objectives to contribute to the EPOS multidisciplinary platform through easier access to geological information and modelling and its sustainability.


The Thematic Core Service on “Geological Data and Modelling” set a series of objectives to contribute to the EPOS multidisciplinary platform through easier access to geological information and modelling and its sustainability.

  • To design and implement an efficient and sustainable access to geological multi-scale data assets. This is done through the integration of distributed infrastructure components (nodes) governed by the EPOS Geology domain (geological surveys and research organisation communities). These nodes offer a broad range of resources including: geological maps, borehole data, chemical and other analyses, geological models (3D, 4D).
  • To provide a shared infrastructure to secure availability of services.
  • To promote and implement standards for geological information and 3D models (INSPIRE, IUGS/CGI, OGC, W3C, ISO).
  • To ensure integration with EPOS ICS.
  • To define future operational governance for the TCS "geology".
