GIS and Data

Activities support the science being conducted in our other Branches. Primary functions are data analysis, management, inventory, and delivery, particularly for large geochemical and geophysical datasets in geospatial format for USGS science and land management agency use. Center outreach, science communication, and IT support functions are also housed here.

21st Century Prospecting: AI-assisted Surveying of Critical Mineral Potential

The USGS Mineral Resources Program entered a partnership with the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA). The partnership objective is to accelerate advances in science for understanding critical minerals, assessing unknown resources, and increase mineral security for the Nation so USGS can more efficiently assess critical mineral deposits within the United States.
