Search engine for geological maps (FID GEO)

The interactive overview map on GEO-LEOe-docs provides access to the online freely available sheets of the geological maps GK25 and GK50. Map sheets already available on GEO-LEOe-docs are listed, usually complemented with the associated explanatory booklets. Researchers may propose public domain map sheets of the GK25 for digitization by the FID GEO free of charge.


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 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).


Publications of the Landesamtes für Geologie und Bergbau Rheinland-Pfalz in the GEO-LEOe-docs repository

Created by Malte Semmler | | E-Publizieren

All issues of the series “Themenhefte vorsorgender Bodenschutz“ are available on the publication platform GEO-LEOe-docs. The special issues are published irregulary and cover current topics of practical relevance to soil protection. Among other things, working aids for soil protection authorities, information on soil protection topics or explanations on new soil maps and Mapserver applications are published.

The Mainzer Geowissenschaftliche Mitteilungen (MGM) are usually published once a year with contributions from members of the geological survey and external authors. Regarding Rhineland-Palatinate and neighboring areas technical topics like geology, engineering geology, hydrology, raw materials, soil science, geotourism, geophysics, mineralogy, stratigraphy, paleontology and mining are covered.At present, all older articles consented by the authors are uploaded to the repository. In future, the offer will be supplemented by the current contributions. All articles are published Open Access and, like all works in the repository, are provided with a DOI for permanent citability.
