MIRAGE - Map Image Rendering DAtabase for GEoscience
Entry ID: Canada_GSC_MIRAGE


Summary
Abstract: The Map Image Rendering Database for Geoscience (MIRAGE) project started in
July 1998 with a grant from the ESS ResSources GSC initiative (RGSC). In 2003,
the ESS Program Consolidating Canada's Geoscience Knowledge revamped the
project to include the majority of ESS geological maps. The goal of this
Program is to provide the infrastructure for efficient and effective discovery,
access and management of Canada's geoscience data, information and knowledge
and to develop a prioritized implementation plan for the Cooperative Geological
Mapping Strategies (CGMS) which reflect social, economic, environmental and
policy sector needs and priorities.The aim of MIRAGE is to make ESS Geoscience
maps accessible through the Internet. This was accomplished by scanning
thousands of paper maps and linking these images to their metadata records.
Users can now search this metadata to discover geoscience maps that they can
view and download.
