It provides geological geospatial data by means of Internet and network services based on modern technologies meeting up-to-date standards according to the INSPIRE Directive.
It contains information on the following subjects:
- mineral deposits as well as mining and mineral processing,
- surface and underground waters,
- construction soil conditions,
- environmental protection and cultural monument preservation,
- environmental geochemistry,
- waste disposal.
To access information, please install the SVG plug-in and the MSXML library version 1.0 or 2.0.
The Landslide Protection System is a database with information on landslides and mass movement hazard areas in Poland. Aimed at supporting local governments, the system helps to perform duties related to the mass movement issue and imposed by relevant laws and regulations.
The Infogeoskarb system aims to gather and give access to geological information about mineral deposits and hydrogeological objects published in archival geological reports.
Register of mining areas
The register contains register books, a set of documents related to mining areas, an alphabetical list of mining areas and an atlas of simplified maps of mining areas. The register books are accessible to all interested.
The MIDAS database contains information indispensable to the geological administration and surveys for managing mineral deposits and balancing their resources. Additionally, it gathers data on import and export as well as Polish and global production and prices of natural resources. It also provides data on concessions.
Mineral resources of Poland
Available also in English, the database contains information on mineral resources of Poland, including data on import and export of particular resources. The data are obtained from the MIDAS system and the current issue of ‘The Balance of Raw Material and Groundwater Resources in Poland’.
The website provides comprehensive information on chemical resources of Poland, including mineral waters as a source of chemical resources.
It collects information about the turnover of natural resources in Poland, used to prepare the annual issue of ‘The Balance of Raw Material and Groundwater Resources in Poland’. The data are available to order.
Building stones in Poland
The website contains information on building stone deposits, including the photographs of quarries and rocks extracted there.
Used locally by the Economic Geology Unit of the PGI, the database contains characteristics of separate metallogenic units, including relation to tectonics, genetic type, age of mineralization and economic potential of a given unit.
Run by the National Hydrogeological Survey, the application provides information on the following issues:
- Monitoring points
- Hydrogeological objects
- Major Ground Water Basins
- Ground Water Bodies
The HYDRO Bank
It gathers data on boreholes, intakes and springs of natural underground waters, mineral waters and thermal waters in Poland. The database can be accessed by the Hydro2000Plus application, available for the users with assigned permissions.
The Hydrogeological Observation System collects information from the network of underground water observation stations established in 1972. It provides data on the water table fluctuation and, for selected observation points, results of physical-chemical analyses. The database is available in the PGI Hydrogeological–Engineering Geology Department.
Created in 1991 by the National Environmental Monitoring, the database of monitoring of underground water quality collects results of chemical composition analyses and assessment of underground water quality.
The Underground Water Monitoring Database
The Underground Water Monitoring Database combines both the resources and functionalities of the former SOH and MONBADA databases.
Medicinal waters, mineral waters and brines
It gathers information about hydrogeological objects such as medicinal waters, thermal waters, brines and potentially medicinal or mineral waters, including locations of underground water deposits and health resorts available on maps.
Geotopes of the Polish-Lithuanian borderlands
The geographic viewer of the updated database of geotopes of the Polish-Lithuanian borderlands was prepared as part of geoenvironmental research to support balanced development and hazard identification of this area, additionally raising the issue of seaside protection.
The project provides:
- geospatial reports and data, including cadastral data (details of the geometry of parcels of land);
- reports on aerial and satellite orthophotomaps and additionally:
- environmental maps in the scale of 1:50 000,
- hydrographic maps in the scale of 1:50 000,
- topographic raster maps in the scale of 1:10 000, 1:25 000, 1:50 000, 1:100 000,
- data on borders of administrative units in Poland,
- data obtained from the national register of geographical names.
Unified and continuous, the Digital Map of Hydrographic Division of Poland provides hydrographic information about the territory of Poland, also including the parts of the Vistula and the Oder drainage basins lying out of Poland. The database is available in the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management and the CBDG geographic viewer, which used its data for the ‘Rivers’ and ‘Lakes’ information layers.
The data presented here were gathered while building the network of locations of habitats and species, Natura 2000, in Poland. The searching criteria include their names and postal codes as well as provinces, counties, habitats and species.
The State Forests
The application uses maps to display information about the forest areas in Poland.
