What is Geofacets?

The Geological Society of America now participates in Geofacets, a web-based research tool that offers access to an extensive database of georeferenced geological maps. With intuitive features designed for geoscientists working in upstream oil and gas exploration, it enables users to efficiently and confidently assess a region or basin's geologic characteristics and potential. Users can navigate fluidly between the downloadable maps—available as GeoTiff, KMZ, and more—and the original journal and book content.

For more information, including a list of all of GSA's publications that appear in Geofacets, please visit the Geofacets page.
