The Florida Geological Survey (FGS) collects, archives, interprets and distributes geologic information to benefit the environment and Florida’s communities. The FGS uses geologic, hydrogeologic and related data as well as mapping and modeling to improve understanding of water and mineral resources, and geological hazards such as sinkholes. Our geoscience products support initiatives related to water-resource conservation and management, improvement of the quality of natural resources and promotion of economic growth. The FGS is committed to continuously increasing the amount and quality of geoscience data and making it available to the public. Collaboration with local, state and federal agency partners ensures a robust and cost-efficient approach to addressing Florida's environmental concerns.
