Search engine for topographic maps (SIS Maps)

Our partner, the Specialised Information Service for Cartography and Geodata (SIS Maps), offers various map catalogues on its website, including a high volume of topographic map series with links to the world's national and regional geoportals as well as links to various country-specific Grids&Datums.

Repositories for Text and Data Publications

GEO-LEOe-docs is the geoscientific repository for texts and geological maps, maintained by the FID GEO and operated at the Göttingen State and University Library (SUB Göttingen). GEO-LEOe-docs serves as a platform for so called Green Open Access publications (secondary publications). It also offers an interactive overview map with access to digitised geological maps (GK25). On GEO-LEOe-docs all documents are freely accessible and referenced with DOI. Various ongoing net publications are released here as digital first publications.

GFZ Data Services is the subject-specific research data repository for the geosciences and related disciplines, through which research data have been published with DOI since 2004. Today, GFZ Data Services is an internationally recognized repository for citable and DOI referenced geoscientific data, software and the assignment of International Generic Sample Numbers (IGSN = PID for physical samples).


More than 1600 freely available geological maps on GEO-LEOe-docs

Created by Malte Semmler | | Allgemein

The GEO-LEOe-docs overview page provides links to more than 1600 freely available geological maps (GK25) at a scale of 1: 25000. Individual map sheets supplied by geological surveys and libraries can be searched and downloaded. 

The provided cartographical material of the FID GEO itself is usually associated with an explanatory booklet and a georeferenced GeoTIFF. Here, the number of available map sheets has almost doubled over the past six months, to currently 380 map sheets. 

To be informed about new entries, you can subscribe to the map collection by registering on GEO-LEOe-docs. You will then be notified when new maps are available.

We are happy to integrate freely available map sheets from other providers.
