GeoDIL: A Geoscience Digital Image Library

University of North Dakota, University of North Dakota

The Geoscience Digital Image Library (GeoDIL) is a searchable collection of Earth science images intended as a general teaching resource, to specifically facilitate virtual field trips, to enhance the public's scientific and technological literacy, and to assist Earth science programs in smaller schools and colleges that do not have documented images as part of their regular teaching materials. Users can retrieve images through standard or advanced searches, or through browsing by category. Catagories include Earth resources, minerals, rocks and rock-forming processes, surficial geology, structural geology and tectonics, geologic time (chronostratigraphy), paleontology (fossils, etc), and planetary geology. Images are downloadable and are accompanied by descriptive annotations, general metadata, locational and geological information, and the browsing categories with which each are associated. In order to view imagery, this site requires a user to register.
