The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) has created a demonstration of a subscription-based service for Web-based GIS mapping titled GIS-UDRIL. This service allows users to display and modify various thematic maps related to petroleum geology and exploration using GIS data prepared by AAPG.
AAPG publishes a list of maps available through their subscription service. There is also a set of demonstration maps that are available to use without the subscription.
The Earth Sciences and Map Library is proud to announce that, beginning November 3, 2008, the library will offer large format scanning, print, and copy services for UC students, faculty and staff.
The library's scanner, an HP Designjet T1100 MFP, is capable of scanning maps with a maximum dimension of 42 inches. Maps are scanned at 400dpi and are delivered as high quality TIFF files via web download, USB drive, or DVD. Prints can be made from maps in the library collection or from user supplied USB drives or disks and are printed on bond paper.
Orders and payment are accepted Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm in person or via phone only. Payments must be made by credit card. Order forms and a fee schedule are available online as well as at the Earth Sciences and Map Library.
Library users who are not affiliated with the University should contact Interlibrary Services (ILS) to find out more about the large format scanning, copy, and print services for maps.
