Geological Survey of Ethiopia (GSE)

Project Goal

GSE implements GIS technologies for the production of good quality geoscience data and make it easily accessible to the stakeholders. Geoscience data is acquired by doing geological mapping and mineral exploration activities. Through these activities the quantity and distribution of georesource potential (like mineral and geothermal energy) can be well understood. We are using GIS applications for pre field base map preparation, geological mapping, map harmonization works, geodata digitization, editing and analysis. Our new ArcGIS enterprise portal has been deployed last year and we are now applying web GIS technology resulting in easily accessible of the data to the stake holders.
