GIS Databases for Central America, the Greater Antilles, Mexico, Colombia and Ecuador

Recursos del Caribe offers CentralAmericaMap, GreaterAntillesMap, MexicoMap, ColombiaMap and EcuadorMap for sale in either MapInfo or in ArcGIS format.

Download the readme files Greater Antilles readme, Central America readme, Colombia readme, Ecuador readme or Mexico readme for a detailed database description and for pricing information.

 

Each database consists of modules for Geography (infrastructure, digital elevation models and shaded relief), Geology (vector files for a geologic map compiled from published sources), TS Units (a tectono-stratigraphic interpretation of the geologic map), Radiometric Dates (published radiometric dates), Prospects (metallic mineral mines and prospects), and Land Status (national parks, protected areas and metallic mineral concessions).

These databases are designed for mining and exploration companies and for government and private agencies.

 

Multielement Geochemical Databases

Multielement geochemical data, with an emphasis on stream sediment samples, is available in vector format for Mexico, Panama, Ecuador and Colombia. Sample locations and geochemical analyses are being captured in vector format and new countries are being added steadily.

These multielement geochemical databases are designed to be used with ColombiaMap, MexicoMap, EcuadorMap, GreaterAntillesMap and CentralAmericaMap but they are offered separately.

For a detailed description of the available multielement geochemical databases, click on Panama Gchem database or Mexico GChem database or Colombia Gchem database or Ecuador GChem database.
