GIS Added to Digital BULLETIN
Something new is coming to the AAPG’s digital BULLETIN, in the form of GIS files.
The first quarter from the 2006 BULLETIN has been georeferenced – including all the figures and articles in compressed zip files for the members to download alongside the issue and articles.
“We’ll continue doing this as a value-added service to the digital BULLETIN,” said AAPG Geoscience Director Jim Blankenship, “and we’re looking forward to improving the service based on member feedback. “The program is brand new and will certainly evolve over time,” he added.
The accompanying figure illustrates the link to the downloadable zip file on the AAPG Web site for that issue’s GIS files. Once uncompressed, a readme.txt file spells out the pertinent details on how to use the GIS files.
Over the course of the next several months AAPG members can expect more announcements regarding GIS, such as streaming videos on how to use these new tools, and much more.
