The FGS has a number of resources for geologic data and information.  Please see below for links.

Florida Geologic Data

The Florida Geological Survey maintains multiple geologic collections including borehole samples, hand specimens and fossil specimens. Information and data about these collections are listed below.

Borehole and Sample Data

GEOlogic Data Enterprise System (GEODES)

Information about our borehole and hand specimen collections can be found in GEODES. This includes location information, sample availability and lithologic descriptions.  

Florida Department of Environmental Protection Geospatial Open Data Portal

The FDEP geospatial portal contains over 250 geodata items that can be searched, explored and downloaded directly from the site. The FGS has submitted over 60 geodata items that can be searched and downloaded. FGS Data Downloads, FDEP Data Downloads

Geologic Documents

Publications and Library InformationFlorida Geological Survey Physical Publications

All FGS reports, contract deliverables and formally published publications can be accessed through our FGS Publications page.


The greenbook collection is a compilation of 150 green 3-ring binders that are housed at the FGS. They include location information, drillers' logs, paleontology reports, and lithologic descriptions associated with the boreholes in our holdings and was our main source of data for nearly a century. A significant amount of the primary borehole data has been captured in GEODES; however, additional information exist in these books. Scans are now available via our Greenbook Index page.

Field Books

The Florida Geological Survey holds a collection of 300 historic field books, which contain historic information about Florida including topography, vegetation, and historic mining operations. The books also contain information about geologic sampling, drillers' logs, lithologic descriptions and laboratory notes. This collection is now scanned and available on our FGS Field Books page.
