Benefits of Geofacets

Geofacets data gives details about the structure, properties, composition, and evolution of Earth surfaces. It saves scientists time in searching for and georeferencing AGU maps for research or exploration purposes.

Geofacets helps researchers make better interpretations and more informed decisions about geologic conditions of multiple areas, protecting public safety. Maps can be downloaded and seamlessly integrated into GIS, and modelling and presentation software, such as Google Earth and PowerPoint.
