AGI launches Earth Science World ImageBank

ALEXANDRIA, VA -- Do you want to include a scenic mountain photo in a presentation? Or show a picture of an erupting volcano to your students? The American Geological Institute (AGI) is proud to announce the launch of the Earth Science World ImageBank, a free service, (http://www.earthscienceworld.org/imagebank) with high-quality, fully-indexed images. Launched with approximately 1,000 fully-indexed images, the Earth Science World ImageBank continues to grow with dozens of new images every day.

The Earth Science World ImageBank is one of the largest collections of Earth science images available to the public. This searchable database is designed to provide the public, educators, and the geoscience community access to quality images in a wide range of Earth science topics at no cost for non-commercial use. "There are literally thousands of photos of excellent quality that capture the forces that created our dynamic Earth and our interaction with it," said Marcus E. Milling, AGI Executive Director. "The ImageBank is an extraordinary resource that will benefit teachers and others who want to convey these concepts."

Images in the database have been gathered from geoscientists, professional photographers, and government organizations and are individually described and cataloged using a main subject, keywords, and its location, if applicable. The American Geological Institute is encouraging use of this resource for professional and educational non-commercial use. Additionally, geoscientists or photographers who would like to participate in the ImageBank should logon to find out more.

The Earth Science World ImageBank project was initiated in August 2002 and is supported by the AGI Foundation. In addition to expanding the collection of photos in the ImageBank, future plans include making high-resolution copies (digital or print) available for non-commercial and commercial purposes, dependi
