South Atlantic Digital Atlas

Accelerate your understanding with Earthmoves’ South Atlantic Margins Digital Atlas – a continuously updated data-rich resource provided in ArcGIS format.

This Atlas summarises the findings of more than 4000 scientific papers, including our own work, and presents the geology in a digital format. All digitised maps are constructed in ArcMap. All features are clearly labelled and cross-referenced to original authors. These are the most detailed South Atlantic Margin maps available for purchase. Our plate fit becomes especially powerful when evaluating new frontier areas with sparse information, where in contrast the conjugate margin has more data and proven petroleum systems exist.

Includes basin & block-level evaluations for the latest Licensing Rounds, including: Cote d’Ivoire, Gabon, Angola, Brasil, and Uruguay.
