Project Title State Geological Survey Contributions to NGDS Data Development, Collection and Maintenance
Project Type / Topic 1 Recovery Act: Geothermal Technologies Program
Project Type / Topic 2 Geothermal Data Development, Collection, and Maintenance
Project Description The project is expected to make large quantities of geothermal-relevant geoscience data held by the State Geological Surveys available via the NGDS.
State Arizona
Objectives Expand and enhance the National Geothermal Data System (NGDS) by creating a national, sustainable, distributed, interoperable network of state geological survey-based data providers that will develop, collect, serve, and maintain geothermalrelevant data that operates as an integral compliant component of NGDS.

Other Principal Investigators Stephen M. Richard, Arizona Geological Survey
Targets / Milestones Arizona Geological Survey proposes to bring data from the State Geological Surveys (via AASG) into the NGDS, by digitizing at-risk legacy, geothermal-relevant data (paper records, samples, etc), publishing existing digital data using standard NGDS data services, and through limited collection of new data in areas lacking critical information.

This outcome will enhance state’s abilities to:

- Preserve and disseminate geothermal data - Cacilitate geothermal resource characterization and development efforts; expand the scope of data available to the geothermal community - Foster new services and applications built by third-parties to take advantage of the system’s capabilities and content - Contribute materially to creation of a national geoinformatics system through implementation and deployment of NGDS - Increase operational support for geoinformatics infrastructure through broader user base



Location of Project 40 states


Impacts Make large quantities of geothermal-relevant geoscience data held by the State Geological Surveys available to the public and industry via the NGDS Benefits: Enhance state’s abilities to preserve and disseminate geothermal data; facilitate geothermal resource characterization and development efforts; expand the scope of data available to the geothermal community; foster new services and applications built by third-parties to take advantage of the system’s capabilities and content; contribute materially to creation of a national geoinformatics system through implementation and deployment of NGDS.
