To expedite exploration activities, GSI has embarked to cover following National level surveys by 2024.
National Geochemical Mapping (NGCM) is an all-India programme to cover entire surface area of the country by geochemical sampling.
National Geophysical Mapping (NGPM) generates basic and derived maps of Bouguer (Gravity) Anomaly and International Geomagnetic Reference Field (IGRF) corrected magnetic total field maps of the country by conducting ground gravity and magnetic surveys.
It provides stakeholders a framework to design exploration strategies.
National Aero Geophysical Mapping Program (NAGMP) to delineate concealed, deep seated structure/ litho-units capable of hosting mineralization, delineate extension of the existing mineralized zone and understating of shallow crustal architecture in the context of mineral occurrence.
GSI has also initiated its flagship initiative of National Geoscience Data Repository (NGDR) that aims at integrating the collected data by GSI and the similar organizations to build a repository on the digital medium entailing multiple user access.
