SIGM database comprises various kind of dataset, topographical
maps, country and administrative boundaries (Wilaya, Moumata),
cities, villages, rivers, infrastructure like road and railway,
geology, mineral occurrences, satellite imagery data, airborne
geophysical data, concession areas, elevations (points and contours),
which are stored in ArcView. Furthermore, a lot of bibliography
is stored in the Adobe PDF file format. To date, a wide range
of information of including loading of databases, maps and bibliographic
data has been integrated into the system.
Products from the on-going PRISM projects are entered into the
system, and some of them, for instance, geological maps, geochemical
and geophysical data and hydro-geological maps, are available
to supply for foreign investors and institutions (http://www.omrg-mining.mr/).
geophysical survey is an essential and indispensable exploration
tool for countries like Mauritania whose surface is widely covered
by sand desert. In the PRISM project, Mauritanian territory
is divided into the following six zones, and airborne geophysical
surveys, airborne magnetic and radiometric methods, have been
carried out in the highest priority areas, the northern Mauritania
zone (Dorsal Reguibat Shield area), and the southern zone (near
boundary with Mali). The results will be entered in to SIGM
database in this year.
