Geological Mapping Update of Antarctica (GEOMAP)

The Action Group on the Geological Mapping Update of Antarctica has been formed to begin the process of updating geologic geospatial information of Antarctica. The aim is to facilitate an international effort to gather both rock and surficial deposit information and compile it into a modern digital framework, with a view to producing a holistic GIS dataset that will underpin studies of glacial dynamics and climate change. 

International representatives are still being sought. Interested parties should contact the Steering Committee co-chairs.
