JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. –  Missouri now has a one-stop-shop for information on the state’s geology, water, earthquakes and more.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources released its “MGS Hub” site for ArcGIS data.

“The MGS Hub site contains all of the publicly available ArcGIS datasets and applications our Missouri Geological Survey has to offer,” said Dru Buntin, director of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. “The MGS Hub provides users immediate access to the most current data, 24/7.”

One feature of the new site is the interactive “Follow the Water” Story Map. It explores the geological, ecological and cultural significance of springs in the Ozarks.

The MGS Hub also includes the following.

  • Geosciences Technical Resource Assessment Tool (GeoSTRAT): an interactive map that contains geologic and geotechnical data including springs, mines, water wells, sinkholes and more
  • Groundwater Observation Wells interactive map: provides information about groundwater observation wells in Missouri and real-time groundwater level information, where available

“These are just a few of the applications and data available on the MGS Hub site. I am excited we are able to provide all of this information in one spot. Providing data to the public is another positive effort to support our mission,” said Jerry Prewett, assistant state geologist and deputy director of the Missouri Geological Survey.
