The geo-energy, groundwater and raw materials themes share the common objective to provide and disseminate spatial information on their respective resources and underpinning geological data. As the cross-thematic integration of information is an important aspect to be addressed in GeoERA a specific theme on Spatial Information that effectively integrates all ICT-related and technical issues (database and dissemination) from the three challenges has been introduced.
The Spatial Information theme will address the development of a common geoscience information platform capable of integrating up-to-date data, interpretations and models from different and distributed sources, both within and across the three main geo-scientific themes of GeoERA.
The platform will be based on results obtained during the developement of the European Geological Data Infrastructure (EGDI) (see www.europe-geology.eu) which has been implemented in a first version in 2016 by members of the EuroGeoSurveys Spatial Information Expert Group.
Theme coordinator for the Information Platform theme is Jørgen Tulstrup firstname.lastname@example.org from GEUS.
Here is an example of the user interface of EGDI:
