Geology and Geophysics of Geothermal Systems, Gregory Nash, 2005. This project has also reinforced the value of geographic information systems (GIS) in exploration efforts. GIS has enabled the visualization of data, storage and access of disparate data sets, and merging of data that would not be possible using any other technology. While CAD is preferred by some in geothermal exploration, it lacks a multitude of the functions facilitated with GIS.
