Grants and Contracts Details


The long-term data preservation effort at the Kentucky Geological Survey includes the expansion of its core and sample facility, a comprehensive inventory and stratigraphic indexing of existing materials, complete digitization of all geoscience data holdings, and development of web services to provide public access to all materials and data. This project aims to create site-level metadata of Kentucky well and sample information for the NGGDPP National Catalog. Metadata will be created from existing databases of oil and gas wells, water wells, coal exploration holes, and other sample sites. The specific objective of metadata creation will be to demonstrate linkages from the National Catalog to existing web-accessible data services at KGS. Metadata will be created in either XML or WFS format, according to individual data requirements, and an update plan will be formulated. In addition, an effort to inventory and attach labels to core boxes will be undertaken.
