Years to come
The Central Geological Database will exist and expand, with its first priority to obtain new resource data and improve their quality. Data from older thematic databases will be continually transferred to the CBDG, which will further integrate with thematic databases still in use. With its expansion, the database will offer an opportunity to browse scans of documentation, maps, graphic attachments, etc. The scope of the CBDG data publicly available on the Internet according to binding legal regulations will be steadily increasing. International systems of geological information will continue to be designed and drawn up in relation to the CBDG.
The database expansion will involve implementing modern information technologies as well as developing a specialised software application used for data processing, including efficient ways of data visualisation.
