DOGAMI and the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program

Funding from the STATEMAP portion of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program (NCGMP) has been at the core of the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) geologic-mapping program for many years.

The program has allowed DOGAMI to significantly increase the production of new maps and has, through the State Geologic Mapping Advisory Committee, helped focus mapping on areas where resource and hazard-management issues require good geologic data.

Because so much of Oregon is a frontier state in terms of geologic mapping, DOGAMI’s STATEMAP projects typically begin with a year or two of detailed mapping to understand the area’s geology, followed by more regional mapping and compilation to provide the kind of coverage that users need.

DOGAMI projects focus on the geology of rapidly developing urban areas (Medford 30´ x 60´ and Grants Pass Area projects), and areas where good regional mapping is needed to understand critical ground-water problems (Klamath Basin, Upper Grande Ronde Basin).

DOGAMI projects also focus on areas where general ecosystem- and watershed-health management requires regional data concerning rock chemistry, soils, mineral deposits and slope stability (La Grande 30´ x 60´). In fact most of these areas include some or all these issues, plus geologic hazards in the form of earthquakes and landslides are shared by all.
