Elsevier to add more than 100,000 maps to Geofacets platform through agreement with Wiley

(5 January 2015) Elsevier with Wiley will integrate more than 100,000 maps from Wiley’s leading journals into the Geofacets platform. The content integration will increase the amount of trusted data available to geoscientists, helping them to make better-informed decisions in exploration, as well as improve recommendations that influence company investments in new exploration opportunities.

Content to be added includes fundamental geologic maps, petroleum geoscience maps, geophysical maps and specialized maps, such as those focused on sedimentology and geochemistry. The content is from 26 Wiley journals, published on behalf of several society partners (including the American Geophysical Union). This will increase Geofacets’ content portfolio to more than 500,000 maps extracted from almost 200,000 associated articles by the end of the year.

Geofacets is Elsevier’s premier research tool for geoscientists working in natural resource exploration.  Geofacets extracts geologic maps from trusted, peer-reviewed publications, making content easier to find and integrate with other data. Users will have seamless access to multi-disciplinary content extracted from Wiley journals and maps including high impact journals such as Basin Research, the Journal of Petroleum Geology, and Sedimentology and journals published on behalf of the American Geophysical Union including Geophysical Research Letters, Reviews of Geophysics, Journal of Geophysical Research and Paleoceanography.
