Welcome to the CGI
CGI, The Commission for the Management and Application of Geoscience Information, is a Commission of the International Union of Geological Sciences.
Our mission is to enable the global exchange of knowledge about geoscience information and systems. This website will be one of the most important ways that CGI will achieve its mission.
We hope you will find the website worth visiting! If you have any feedback, comments, or suggestions you are welcome to send them to us.
If you would like to know more about us or perhaps become a member of CGI, please see our participation pages.
The number of geoscience information colleagues joining the CGI reached an all time high of over 250!
