*American Mineralogist Crystal Structure Database*This site is an interface to a crystal structure database that includes every structure published in the American Mineralogist, The Canadian Mineralogist, European Journal of Mineralogy and Physics and Chemistry of Minerals, as well as selected datasets from other journals. The database is maintained under the care of the Mineralogical Society of America and the Mineralogical Association of Canada, and financed by the National Science Foundation.
*Breathing Earth (*A project of polish designer David Bleja that offers real-time updated data on carbon dioxide emissions, birth and death rates all over the Earth.
*Coal Online (*Coal Online is a major free resource providing comprehensive information on the technology of coal utilization. The information is based on published reports from the IEA Clean Coal Centre presented as chapters on specific topics related to coal and its use in Clean Coal Technologies. Each chapter contains up to several hundred pages illustrated with figures and tables.
*GeoGratis (* A portal provided by the Earth Sciences Sector (ESS) of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) which provides geospatial data. The geospatial data are grouped in over 100 collections and are compatible with the most popular geographic information systems (GIS), with image analysis systems and the graphics applications of editing software.
*GeoGuide Startseite (*The Geo-Guide is a subject gateway to scholarly relevant websites in earth sciences, geography and mining maintained in cooperation by the Goettingen State and University Library and University Library "Georgius Agricola" Freiberg.
* (* A project of Hobart M. King, Ph.D., a licensed professional geologist who provides an actual information on geology and adjacent sciences in cooperation with leading US geology organizations.
* Global Change Master Directory. Portal for Open Geospatial Consortium. (* NASA's Global Change Master Directory (GCMD) provides access to more than 34,000 Earth science data set and service descriptions (stored in NASA's Common Metadata Repository [CMR]) which cover subject areas within Earth and environmental sciences.
*Global Volcanism Program (* A project of the Smithsonian Institution's Global Volcanism Program (GVP) that deals with the research in the field of global volcanic activity. Thematic interactive maps, diagrams, and other sources are provided.
*International Directory Network (IDN) (*NT> International Directory Network (IDN) - a Gateway to the world of Earth Science data. The CEOS IDN is an international effort developed to assist researchers in locating information on available datasets. The directory is sponsored as a service to the Earth science community.
*IRIS Seismic Monitor (*Created in 1984 with the support of National Science Foundation, an interactive map of world seismic activity that has been made by a consortium of 100 U.S. research institutions.
* (* is the world's largest open database of minerals, rocks, meteorites and the localities they come from. It is an outreach project of the Hudson Institute of Mineralogy, a not-for-profit organization.
*Mineralogy Database (*The site contains 4,714 individual mineral species descriptions with links and a comprehensive image library. crystallography, crystal structures, chemical composition, physical and optical properties. The Mineralogy Database was last updated on 9/5/2012.
*OneGeology Portal (* This site offers an interactive geology world map with the possibility to extend it by a variety of layers (lithological indicators, the age of rocks etc.). The data are provided in English and French.
*OpenGeoData (* Catalogue of open resources on geology, geophysics, hydrogeology, meteorology, etc. The website contains information about the available free software for geological applications.
*OpenGeoscience (* А free service where you can view maps, download data, scans, photos and other information. The services available under OpenGeoscience are listed below, and include: view geology data through the Geology of Britain map window and as WMS, access to over a million borehole scans, search and download photos from the GeoScenic geological photo archive, view our published paper maps and sections from 1832 to 2014 and publications from 1835 to the present.
