Geodata in the Economy Survey


The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) Workforce Program is investigating the scope of the impact of geologic maps and related data in the economy.  This survey is a follow-up to the preliminary survey on the General Use of Geologic Map Data, but not completeing the prior survey does not preclude responding to this instrument.  For the purpose of this study, geologic map data includes not only traditional bedrock geologic maps, but also maps of any data of a generally immutable property of a location, such as gravity, magnetics, hazards/flood risk, etc.  The results of this survey will be compiled into a freely-available public report, with a planned availability by mid-2018.

Your input as a practicing geoscientist is invaluable to understanding what geologic map data is used and to what applications that data is applied.  The ability to fully recognize how this geoscience data is used within the economy represent key data in communication the value of the geosciences to the public, policy-makers, and the geoscience community. 

A note on privacy
This survey is anonymous.
The record of your survey responses does not contain any identifying information about you, unless a specific survey question explicitly asked for it. If you used an identifying token to access this survey, please rest assured that this token will not be stored together with your responses.
