Celebrate Geologic Map Day on October 14, 2016!
Welcome to Geologic Map Day 2016, a special event designed to promote awareness of geologic mapping and its vital importance to society.
As an extension of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program, Geologic Map Day focuses the attention of students, teachers, and the general public on the study, uses, and significance of geologic maps for education, science, business, and a variety of public policy concerns.
Founding partners responsible for organizing Geologic Map Day are the United States Geological Survey, the American Association of State Geologists, and the American Geosciences Institute.
The event is celebrated on the Friday of AGI’s Earth Science Week (www.earthsciweek.org), a public awareness campaign that reaches millions of people each year with educational resources, information, and activities promoting awareness of Earth science. Please join us!
