What We Do

What We Do

AGS delivers geoscience in several key areas, including surficial mapping, bedrock mapping, geological modelling, resource evaluation (hydrocarbons, minerals), groundwater, and geological hazards. We also are responsible for maintaining the Alberta Table of Formations and providing geoscience outreach to stakeholders ranging from professional colleagues and academia to the general public.

AGS creates and disseminates geoscience information in the form of reports, maps and digital data sets, and posters and presentations. Many of our products are built within an interactive GIS environment that is accessible to the public. We are building 3D geological models of Alberta that include surface and subsurface features in a format that will allow users to incorporate their information within our models.

This website delivers our key products and information on Alberta geology. Our current projects and activities are highlighted, along with geoscience information about Alberta.
