THE COUNCIL FOR GEOSCIENCE’S DATA PORTAL GOES LIVE

The Council for Geoscience (CGS) has today announced that its data management portal has gone live. The announcement comes after its CEO, Mr Mosa Mabuza participated in the Annual Junior Indaba conference which was held virtually. The CGS has been hard at work to ensure that it makes quality geoscience data and information accessible and available to all stakeholders. The organisation began the process with the finalisation of the data and information policy which was approved by its Board. The policy was drafted to provide guidelines on the modalities of releasing the data. Following this, there was a review of the pricing guidelines for data and information. Through the guidelines, the cost of data and information was updated to ensure that the prices are not only current but affordable to the various categories of stakeholders and the public. The Pricing guidelines then necessitated the development of a Data and Information Catalogue which outlines the different categories of maps and databases available at either a cost or no cost.
