Geophysical Report Publication Products

An overview of Geophysical Report (GPR) publication data products available to help users identify the data they need.

Maps

Survey area, flight lines, acquisition lines, station locations, gridded data, interpretation and other data with a variety of base data including topography, towns, Public Land Survey System, and other pertinent geographic information.

Primary data

Actual recorded and processed data in industry standard ASCII and database format. Data packages with these data include but are not limited to ascii_data, databases_geosoft, and seismic data deliverables.

Grids

Gridded line or point data. These data are available in common data value grid formats and/or as RGB registered images. Data packages with these data include but are not limited to grids_geosoft, grids_ermapper, or images_registered.

Georeferenced images

Gridded data, interpretation and other data can be in this format. Data packages with these data include but are not limited to images_registered.

KMZ

Keyhole markup language KMZ archive files.

Models

Models created from recorded data. Most DGGS models are created through a process called inversion. These may be 1D, 2D, or 3D data. Look for data packages with 'model' in the name.

Photos

Photos of survey equipment, stations, or continuous downward looking photos along data collection path from an airborne survey. Often these photos will be georeferenced. Look for data packages with "photo" in the name.

Video

Video of survey equipment, stations, or continuous downward looking video along data collection path from an airborne survey. Often these video will have a time and location on the frame or other referencing information. Look for data packages with "video" in the name.

Outreach

These data packages are specifically intended for the general public and do not require specialized software. These data packages often contain instructions and derivative products that can be used for interpretation of the subsurface. Look for data packages with 'outreach' in the name.
