The Geoscience Imagebase offers secure storage for all BGS digital and analogue images and consists of several components, including an Oracle database, a sophisticated data and image entry system, and a search application. The photographs you take are greatly valued for a wide range of uses in BGS and where appropriate, outside. Often, these uses are way beyond the original reason for taking the picture! Please try and ensure the metadata are completed. Without basic metadata we cannot use the images for other purposes. The Geoscience Imagebase is managed by BGS Information Management. It is a long term enduring archive for your images well beyond the life of your project. Please take the time to contribute you images and metadata! This document is a guide to metadata entry for the Geoscience Imagebase by direct entry into the database.
