Data techniques are any technique where data is collected and organized in a manner so that the information is useful for geothermal purposes. The data techniques mostly used in geothermal exploration are Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Geothermal Literature Review, and Data Acquisition-Manipulation.
Use in Geothermal Exploration
In 2008 the U.S. Department of Energy, through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, funded the development of an all-encompassing data base for geothermal energy in the United States; the program is called the National Geothermal Data System (NGDS). The goal of NGDS is to advance geothermal energy so that it can be a viable renewable energy contender. NGDS is a data system with all publically available geothermal data spanning all areas in the United States including geothermal electrical production as well as direct use applications. The data is being contributed by state and federal agencies, industry, academic and national laboratory researchers. NGDS will help geothermal exploration and development efforts to be more cost and time effective. It will also serve as a knowledge archive, increase public awareness, and help to advance earth sciences by identifying gaps in our current knowledge of geothermal areas. To learn more about NGDS see (Anderson et al. 2013)[1]
