Data Center Description
The Western Region Databases and Information Analysis (DIA) staff will fulfill a continued need for acquisition, creation, analysis, publication and archiving of digital spatial geosciences data sets for use by MRP staff. The DIA staff will assist their MRP colleagues in performing minerals-related assessments by working with a geographic information system (GIS) to determine its spatial analytical capabilities. The Coordination of GIS activities between the field offices will reduce duplication of effort and will encourage the creation of GIS centers of excellence.
