A New African Exploration GIS

September 2020 - apply HERE for an account for access to EFA Online

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.
Phase 1 was completed 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 donations from profits were contributed to Ed and Christine's charity AFRICA NOW (now Self Help Africa) and Map Action.
