Elsevier Announces Collaboration With The Geological Society Of America To Add Over 60,000 Maps To Geofacets Research Tool

NEW YORK, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Addition of maps from prestigious journals and books dating back to 1934 brings total number of Geofacets maps to over 300,000

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, medical and technical information products and services, today announced its collaboration with The Geological Society of America (GSA), one of the largest and most prestigious societies serving geosciences professionals worldwide. The collaboration will formally launch in September through the integration of more than 60,000 geological maps from GSA's flagship journals, book series and the comprehensive Decade of North American Geology compendium into Geofacets, Elsevier's premier research tool for geoscientists working in exploration for the oil and gas and metals and mining industries.

The move will bring the total number of maps in Geofacets to over 300,000, providing a comprehensive resource for Geofacets users to investigate potential areas for exploration in more detail than ever. The GSA will be the largest 3 rd party content contributor to Geofacets' maps database to date, providing maps from its prestigious range of publications stretching back to 1934. As a result, exploration teams using Geofacets will have more confidence in their technical evaluations of geographic areas for potential energy and mineral sources. For the GSA and its 25,000 members across 103 countries, the collaboration will allow the society to expand the reach of its maps: from its established position with academic users to those in the applied sector that need its information to make the best decisions possible.

"It is an honor to work with one of the world's most influential and recognized publishers in the area of geology," said Alexander van Boetzelaer, Managing Director Corporate Markets at Elsevier. "This collaboration gives us the unique opportunity to provide Geofacets users with seamless access to even more academic maps of the highest quality. The collaboration itself reflects our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with a best-of-breed solution that makes them more competitive as they scale up exploration activities. At the same time it introduces GSA's vital content to more geoscientists in companies around the globe, helping to further the Society's cause and building stronger ties between academia and industry."
