One Geology

An international project aiming to provide digital geological data for the world, One Geology has been launched under the International Year of Planet Earth. The map ‘will be at a scale of 1:1,000,000, meaning it will show any feature a kilometer in size or larger, a scale that participants agreed was the most manageable to begin with, and would allow all countries of the world to participate. As this project continues, the scale will reduce to a more detailed 1:100,000, which will show features about the size of one street block.’ Putney, M. (2007) OneGeology: a site for all.
