The Delaware DataMIL is Retired

Date

The Delaware DataMIL, an online web mapping application that has provided accurate, up-to-date Delaware Geospatial Framework (basemap layers), current and historic aerial photography, and topographic maps for Delaware since 2002 is retired as of June 30, 2013. Originally built as a state of the art, crowd source editing and map delivery system and pilot project for the US Geological Survey National Map, the DataMIL is being replaced by newer mapping technology through the Department of Technology and Information (DTI) which will have a new system in place shortly.

Creation of Improved Accuracy LiDAR-Based Digital Elevation Models for the St. Jones River and Blackbird Creek Watersheds

Project Contact(s)

In tidal wetlands, small differences in ground elevation can have a large impact on hydrology, vegetation, and habitat (e.g., assessment of wetland health and stability, habitat, flood risk, and coastal inundation).

Welcome to Geologic Map Day, a special event designed to promote awareness of geologic mapping and its vital importance to society.

Determination of Future Sea-Level Rise Planning Scenarios for Delaware

Project Contact(s)

The Delaware Geological Survey will review recent scientific literature and assessments of sea-level change in Delaware and identify appropriate scenarios to use for planning purposes throughout the state. This project will also develop new inundation maps along Delaware's coast that correspond to the identified scenarios.

Strategic Plan for Geologic Mapping of Delaware 2016-2030

Geologic maps at the DGS are created as primary deliverables of a project and as derivatives of other projects. Primary deliverables are mainly those that are the result of outside funding sources such as the AASG-USGS cooperative StateMap. Derivative maps are those that have primary data collected for reasons other than geologic mapping can be used to create geologic maps or that geologic maps are derivative products of a project rather than the primary goal of a project.
