Furthering knowledge on geology is the BRGM’s core mission.

As the French Geological Survey, BRGM works to meet the needs of society by producing and disseminating geological information for government departments, planning, industry and education in France and across the world. We create databases, 3D maps and models for applications ranging from resource and risk management to underground storage.
