International Work Group On Geospatial Analysis Of Glaciated Environments (GAGE)

GAGE commenced its official activity at the International Union for Quaternary Research, INQUA, Congress in Berlin, Germany (8/95). The activities of this work group focus on investigations of modern and ancient glaciated environments utilizing techniques of geographic information systems (GIS). The central goals of GAGE are assembly of regional and continental GIS databases for display, analysis, and interpretation of glaciated terrain, as well as for modeling of glacier dynamics and processes. At this site digital data for the Glaciotectonic Map of North America are available in a format that could be used with either ARC/INFO or ArcView software. Other database and map projects are in progress which focus on the Central European region of Poland, eastern Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Byelarus, Ukraine, Russia and adjacent territories bordering the southern and eastern margins of the Baltic basin. A clickable glacial map of the North-Central United States offers an overview of pre-Wisconsin features and detailed regional images on shaded-relief backgrounds. This site also encourages membership in GAGE. Membership is open to any interested scientist and/or science student...
