Elevation Contours Dataset for Delaware

Elevation Contours Dataset for Delaware

Elevation contours at 2 foot intervals for the State of Delaware were produced for New Castle and Kent Counties based on the 2007 LIDAR) and for Sussex County (based on the 2005 LIDAR.) Data are in line shapefile format.

DGS releases new DGIR web application

Delaware Geologic Information Resource (DGIR) Web Application

The Delaware Geological Survey has released the Delaware Geologic Information Resource (DGIR), an online data display tool and map viewer for geologic and hydrologic information, as a "beta" site. DGIR was designed to provide the Delaware professional community with a variety of geoscience data in one application. DGS will continue to refine the both the data and functionality of the website as it is reviewed.

The Delaware Geologic Information Resource (DGIR) is an online data display tool and map viewer for a variety of geologic and hydrologic information released by the Delaware Geological Survey. It was designed to deliver the most commonly available and requested geologic and hydrologic information that is appropriate for use in hydrologic studies, required by regulation and ordinance, and to support state resource management decisions.

Project Contact(s):

The United States Geoscience Information Network (USGIN) initiative is the product of a partnership between the Association of American State Geologists (AASG) and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) created to facilitate discovery of, and access to, geoscience information provided by state and federal geological surveys of the United States. DGS has entered into a partnership with the Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS) to participate in USGIN by establishing a metadata clearinghouse node for Delaware.

Date: Sep 2010

The Delaware Geological Survey has unveiled a new version of their public web site. Although many of the technologies employed are consistent with modern web standards, giving the user a familiar feel and comfort level, particular attention has been paid to information and the retrieval of it. The site is designed to encourage users to explore content they wouldn't other wise read.

SP11 Instructions for Preparation of Delaware Geological Survey Data Base Schedules

SP11 Instructions for Preparation of Delaware Geological Survey Data Base SchedulesInstructions for Preparation of Delaware Geological Survey Data Base Schedules

The DGS, in response to the needs for efficient storage, manipulation,retrieval, and report-generating capability, has proceeded with the conversion of the paper file data base to an integrated automated geologic, hydrologic, and mineral resource management information system. It is necessary to organize data in a systematic and standardized fashion for efficient entry into the automated system. To accomplish this, the DGS has made major revisions in the data recording and filing systems.

This report contains the new DGS data schedules, describes the information that should be recorded on each schedule, and presents instructions for preparation of the schedules. The schedules are designed to make various kinds of data consistent with the input format screens utilized in the automated system.

The types of schedules described include:
1. Well
2. Water Level
3. Lithologic Log
4. Sample
5. Aquifer Test
6. Geophysical Log
7. Field Water Quality
8. Laboratory Water Quality
9. OCS Well

Web-Delivered Application for Hydrogeologic Data

Project Contact(s):

This project is designed to deliver, by web-based technologies, the most commonly available and requested geologic and hydrologic information used in hydrologic studies required by regulation and ordinance and used by state agencies to support resource-management decisions. Available information can be associated with points or areas. Information associated with points includes descriptive logs, geophysical logs, raw and interpreted groundwater levels, aquifer and geologic unit identification, and hydraulic characteristics of wells. Information associated with areas is either in the form of raster-based (grid) data or polygons. Examples of raster-based data include water-table depths and elevations, tops and thicknesses of geologic and aquifer units, and aquifer transmissivity. Examples of polygons include surficial geology and groundwater recharge potential.

The intent of developing a web-technology enabled system is to provide a more intuitive and comprehensive toolset for locating, quickly viewing, and downloading the desired information in an efficient, extensible, and familiar manner.

The Delaware DataMIL Gets a New Look!

The DataMIL gets a New Look!
Date: Mar 2009

The Delaware DataMIL was redesigned to take advantage of more modern web technologies as well as to answer key feature requests to the system. In particular, new additions to the DataMIL include: complete FGDC metadata for all layers, a map previewer embedded into the metadata catalog, and the ability for all datasets (vector and raster) to downloaded as raw GIS data files as well as ArcIMS and WMS map services

Delaware Geological Survey Digital Data Preservation

The goal of this project is consistent with the goals of the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program: to create metadata for geologic data that can populate the National Digital Catalog. Specifically, this project focuses on metadata for the digital photograph holdings of the Delaware Geological Survey and scanning of analog imagery and slides into digital products.

About the Delaware Geological Survey

The DGS Building, University of Delaware, Newark Campus

The Delaware Geological Survey (DGS) is a science-based, public-service-driven Delaware state agency at the University of Delaware (UD) that conducts geologic and hydrologic research, service, and exploration for the benefit of the citizens of the First State. The mission of the DGS is to provide objective earth science information, advice, and service to its stakeholders, the citizens, policy makers, industries, and educational institutions of Delaware.
