GSI has adopted Information Technology as an enabler for most of its scientific and administrative processes. It is constantly striving for
excellence in this sector through building of relevant databases and applications to streamline activity thrust areas, providing IT enabled
tools and services such as VC and IP Telephony for improved communication and collaboration. The ultimate goal is functional adoption of digital
technology in every stages from data collection to dissemination of products and services.
The geoscientific data acquired by Geological Survey of India from various field and laboratory-based investigations are disseminated to the
scientific community through various categories of publications. These include Memoirs, Records, Bulletins, Palaeontologia Indica, Special
Publications, Miscellaneous Publications, Catalogue Series, Indian Geoscience Abstracts, Manual Series, Indian Journal of Geosciences
(A quarterly journal), GSI News and Brochures.
The Geological Survey of India has covered almost all accessible parts of the Indian subcontinent by systematic geological mapping and through
other specialized geoscientific activities. The multi-thematic data thus collected are also used for geospatial modelling for targeting mineral
reserves or to solve geo-environmental problems. Dissemination of this geospatial knowledge is done through different maps, atlases and Web services.
