2 Paper Topics Bulgarian National Geofund Bulgarian Geological Data Sets

3 National Geofund A huge amount of data has been collected in a field of Geological Sciences in Bulgaria in the last 50 years. More than 7000 reports are available in National Geofund covering all aspects of geological activities in Bulgaria including geological mapping, geophysical and geochemical surveys, hydrogeology, exploration of mineral deposits etc. The National Geofund is responsible for collecting and storing all geological data in Bulgaria. Part of the data is published. The National Geofund is in charge of disclosure of unpublished information to another organizations under established rules.

4 National Geofund The oldest geological report dated from 1925
Two ways to find reports of interest In “GeoArchive” Data Base for the reports -using keywords querying. Some keywords - Author name,Title, Year , Location, Map Sheet, Methods, Mineral Resource and etc. Using graphical interface for the areas in which geological works have been done(an example follows).

6 Geological Data Sets The metadata for 32 geological data sets and 14 images as examples were prepared for the GEIXS project. The metadata were sent via to Jan Jillema on 2 times. The short descriptions of data sets follow below.

7 Geological Data Sets 1.Geological Map of Bulgaria, Scale 1:500000.
Published map in 1989, 2 flat coloured sheets covered all territory of Bulgaria, Bulgarian-English edition. The map is compiled on the base of the Geological map of Bulgaria scale 1: and available data of the National Geofund. Digital model available (MapInfo).

8 Digital Map

9 Digital Map Fragment of 1: map in real scale

10 Geological Data Sets 2. Geological Map of Bulgaria, Scale 1:100000.
Published Map Series, 86 coloured flat sheets, covered all the country, available in Bulgarian or in English edition. All available in digital form (MapInfo).

11 Digital Maps

12 Digital Map, example.

13 Geological Data Sets 3. Geological Map of Bulgaria, Scale 1:25000.
Unpublished map series, standard indexed map sheets, covered mineral potential areas. Reports are available in National Geofund. Some of map sheets are available in digital form(MapInfo). The results from new field geological mapping program are produced directly in digital form and printed. Only Bulgarian edition available.

21 Geological Data Sets 8. Map of Mineral Deposits of Bulgaria, 1: Unpublished map series, consists of point objects that represent location of mineral deposits, occurrence and indication. 9. Geoarchive - Data set in Bulgarian language about all the reports available in National Geofund with the key words for searching. 10. Oil and Gas Wells. Data set for all the oil and gas wells drilled on the territory of Bulgaria, onshore and offshore. 11.Seismic Lines in Bulgaria. Data set consists of information from seismic surveys, onshore and offshore.

22 Example of interpretation using information from seismic survey, wells and well logs.

23 Geological Data Sets 12.Aeromagnetic and Gamma Ray Spectrometer Data. Regional aero data: Location of digitised data points along flight lines and calculated values of magnetic fields and U,Th, K.

24 Geological Data Sets 13. Exploration Drillholes and Mining Workings. Data set consists of information from drillholes and mining workings of mineral exploration programs. 14.
