These thematic geological resources studies cover many regions of the world, most with associated enhanced satellite imagery and photogeological interpretations. Many are bilingual. All integrate, to varying extents, available information about geology, well-logs, seismology, etc.
Portions of many other countries have been studied separately, for every continent, except Antarctica. Most noteworthy are studies of all or parts of the USA, Afghanistan, Australia, Colombia, Ecuador, Egypt, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
The most thorough is of China & East Asia, which is available only in digital form, as described below. This particular study does include raw ASTER satellite imagery: it is being made available specifically to provide information comparable to groundtruth for those who wish to do their own integrations and analyses of satellite imagery with digital maps. This study includes all or portions of 20+ countries.
