A New African Exploration GIS

The EFA Project has been undertaken by friends and associates of the late Edward G. Purdy as a memorial to the life and achievements of this remarkable geologist. The aim of the project is to update his Exploration Fabric and Basins maps of Africa and to build a new GIS from the updated information. The updated maps will be published by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists. Digital output will include an interactive internet-based map, together with Google Earth versions and PDF files. Final completion of the project will be in March 2012.

The project has been generously sponsored by a number of oil and gas companies. The contributors are giving their time at no cost and a donation from any profits will go to Ed and Christine's charity AFRICA NOW
