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.  

Search alphabetically by country name under: Topo-List.

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).

Interesting for geoscientists too: The Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft e.V. has announced an Open Data Impact Award to strengthen Open Data in science.

What the award offers:

  • A total of 30,000 euros in funding, distributed among three award winners
  • Visibility for award winners and for the topic, public relations, portrait of the award winners by the media partner DUZ 

Applications are open to: scientists (or research groups) of all disciplines at universities or non-university research institutions based in Germany who have made their research data available and who have enabled and developed innovative re-use outside the scientific community or who demonstrate the potential for social impact in the re-use of their data.

The application deadline for all submissions is 30 June 2020.
