Grants and Contracts Details


Most of the remaining datasets held by KGS have preservation issues that relate to determining geographic coordinate locations,, converting various kinds of records to modern electronic database formats, and scanning documents for archival and public dissemination. Sometimes certain collections cannot be properly summarized in a tabular dataset. It is anticipated that this and future project proposals will focus on digital infrastructure of remaining datasets and data rescue needs as they arise. This proposal will focus on a) indexing and converting paper records of daily continuous ground motions in Kentucky collected by seismic stations to electronic formats, b) transferring oil and gas exploration seismic data from old computer magnetic tapes to modern electronic formats, and c) performing a detailed inventory. of handwritten field notes and maps from the KGS-USGS cooperative mapping nrnciram done from 1960 to 1970.
