Map Services

Arizona Oil & Gas Well Viewer

Our newest interactive map service, published in October 2013, displays 1,100 wells, including wells drilled for oil & gas and geothermal exploration. Digital well logs and, in some cases, log ASCII standard (LAS) digital data accompany each well. 

Gold King Mine Map

Interactive map of Gold King Mine water sampling in CO, NM, UT and AZ. The map displays 115 sample sites in Colorado, nearly 80 in New Mexico, 20 in Utah, and 5 sample sites in Arizona.

Earth Fissure Viewer for Google Earth

The distribution of mapped earth fissures in Cochise, Maricopa and Pinal Counties in Google Earth (.kmz file) environment.

Holbrook Basin Potash Deposit

The Colorado Plateau east of Holbrook is underlain by a potash deposit estimated by the AZGS to contain between 682 million and 2.27 billion metric tons of the mineral. This map shows drilled and permitted drill holes and includes an isopach map showing potash thickness.

Interactive Geologic Map of Grand Canyon, Arizona

Work in progress displaying the geology of Grand Canyon. Mapping largely by George Billingsley and his colleagues at the U.S. Geological Survey. Ryan Clark, formally of the Arizona Geological Survey, built this interactive map and provided permission to showcase it here.

Mines of Arizona

Database Services

AZGS Document Repository

Geologic reports, bulletins and maps published by AZGS and its predecessors agencies from 1915 to the present. All products are available free in PDF format.


The U.S. Geoscience Information Network (USGIN) exposes, connects, and opens earth science data. USGIN is a federated information-sharing framework that uses free and open-source technology, capable of interacting with similarly configured data-sharing networks.

National Geothermal Data System (NGDS)

NGDS is a distributed data system providing access to information resources related to geothermal energy. Data contributors include academic researchers, private industry, and state and federal agencies.

Arizona Geological Survey Mining Data

AZGS Mining Data hosts 1000s of historic Arizona mine files, photographs, and maps from the collection of the former AZ Department of Mines and Mineral Resources. Search by mine name or use the map search tool.


Online Bibliography of Arizona Geology (AZGeoBib) comprises more than 13,000 citations of geologic studies from throughout Arizona. The citation record goes back to A.D. 1848

Geologic Story Map
