Visualizing the Lifecycle of Critical Minerals
Develop interactive visualizations and stories about the lifecycle of critical minerals. Integrate USGS mineral data with other datasets to uncover any economic, environmental, geopolitical, or public health consequences from developing, using, and disposing minerals.

GeoHackJams are a series of monthly participatory events at U.S. Geological Survey (Reston, VA) and Department of Interior (Washington, DC) starting in March 2017 to encourage the use of open geospatial data as well as free and open source visualization tools to tackle projects organized around the following themes:

Background:
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Mineral Resources Program (MRP) and the National Minerals Information Center (NMIC) conduct national and international assessments of the supply of and demand for mineral resources essential to the U.S. economy and national security. MRP and NMIC generate mineral resource assessments with many detailed spatiotemporal datasets on a regular basis to provide decision makers with the information required to ensure that the Nation has an adequate and dependable supply of minerals and materials to meet its defense and economic needs at acceptable costs related to environment, energy, and economics.

Problem:
The Alaska Geology Revealed poster map is a generalization of the thousands of individual rock units into 39 geologic units. However, this map is just one derivative of the Geologic Map of Alaska containing a rich compilation of historic geologic maps of Alaska. The printed version of the Geologic Map of Alaska has about 220 geologic units and the database has about 450 geologic units, each of which represents the compilation of more than 15,000 map units in the attached database. Even with the generalized geology, the sheer complexity of Alaskan geology remains evident. It is difficult to visualize, explore, and analyze all the geologic data simultaneously.

Problem:
Scientists conducting Multi-Resource Analysis (MRA) need visualization tools to explore multiple datasets and conduct complex analyses across multiple resource assessments to better inform decision-making from an interdisciplinary perspective. The resource assessments in Madagascar were conducted in collaboration with the World Bank to determine if there are enough mineral resources in Madagascar to build a port that can drive economic development. Being able to blend at least three data layers together and dynamically control the transparency of each layer would be very useful for enabling on-demand interactive data exploration of multiple resource assessments.
