Department of the Interior , Geological Survey
CFDA #: 15.810

Purpose of this program:

To produce geologic maps of areas in which knowledge of geology is important to the economic, social, or scientific welfare of individual States. STATEMAP supports: (1) projects which produce new geologic maps with attendant explanatory information including correlation of map units, description of map units and symbols, stratigraphic columns, geologic sections, and other pertinent information; and (2) projects which compile existing geologic data in a digital form at a scale of 1 to 100,000 for inclusion in the National Digital Geologic Map Database. OBJECTIVES OF EDMAP: Provide funding for graduate students in academic research programs, through cooperative agreements, that involve geologic mapping and scientific data analysis as major components; expand research and educational capacity of graduate programs that teach earth science students the techniques of geologic mapping and field data analysis; and facilitate the publication and distribution of geologic maps generated in field-based graduate academic research programs.
