Considering the key role of the earth science in economic development, it is
absolutely essential to collect and present the geoscience data of Iran. National
Geoscience Database of Iran according to goals and policies of Third Development
Program, for improving the share of mines and mineral industry in gross national
production, clearly understands and evaluates the role of systematized information

gold, ground geophysics projects, ophiolite bibliography, foreign investment,
natural hazards and review from mines is other activities of NGDIR. The task
of informatics group of NGDIR is designing database softwares and supporting
NGDIR hardware, softwares and network.
