The mineral resource database contains an overview of deposits of metals (ore), industrial minerals, and natural stone in Norway. You can display the fact sheet for each registered deposit by searching for occurrences in a specific county or municipality or by using our Map browser. The dataset contains both area- and point registrations. In Norwegian only.
NGU has undertaken a comprehensive survey of the Norwegian bedrock. Here you will find the online version of the printed bedrock map series of Norway as well as the database GENINO, a search tool for geological units in Norway.
Geologic map and systematic exploration of the bedrock, provide knowledge and information needed to make decisions about sustainable use of its resources, in conjunction with land use and environmental planning, and assessment of natural hazards landslides and radon.
The national radon susceptibility map shows areas in Norway that might be more prone to radon (or: have greater radon risk) than others. In areas marked with high susceptibility, it is estimated that at least 20 % of the homes (houses/residences) have radon concentrations above the upper recommended limit of 200 Bq/m3 at ground floor level.
The map is based on indoor measurements of radon and knowledge of geological conditions. In some areas in Norway radon has been measured in many houses, whereas in other areas there are few available measurements. The map was developed by statistically considering how the proportion of houses that exhibit high radon concentrations may relate to the local geology, and transferring this knowledge to other areas with similar geological conditions. In Norwegian only.
The map of ground investigations (NADAG) shows borehole (points) where ground surveys are carried out. NADAG includes geotechnical data (boreholes) and has a view service for this. The services NADAG offers are free. Where raw data or reports are linked to the survey point, this can be downloaded free of charge.
The information associated with each data point varies and partly depends on the format of data are passed on. There have been no attempts to correct errors in the data sets. NADAG and contributors are not responsible for the individual's use of the data sets. Use of data must be referenced to data owner.
The map of Groundwater provides access to data on wells and springs for purposes such as water supply, energy, research, monitoring of groundwater quality, level and temperature, reports on groundwater investigations and groundwater potential. In Norwegian only.
InSAR Norway shows measurements of ground motion from satellite, called InSAR. The method registers movements in millimetre scale, for example subsidence in cities and deformation in unstable rock slopes.
The density of measuring points varies with the ground surface and is highest in cities and along infrastructure as well as terrain dominated by bare rock. The data originates from the satellites Sentinel-1A/1B from EUs Copernicus program.
The map of Unstable mountain areas has information about every known unstable mountain in Norway. These areas are mountains which shows signs of movement or deformation since last glacial period and can lead to mountain slides in the future.
The mapping and analyzis has been conducted by NGU for the directorate of water and energy (NVE).
The Sediments and marine limit map provides an overview of soils in Norway. Quaternary maps (sediment maps) and systematic exploration of soils and their properties, thickness etc., provide the knowledge and information necessary to make decisions in land use and environmental planning.
The data for sediments is based on the contents of the Quaternary map, which in many cases are converted to digital form by scanning and vectorization. In Norwegian only.
NGU's map and registry system over most of the gravel, crushed stone deposits and quarries in Norway that provide raw materials for the construction industry. The map provides information about the deposits, prioritized on the basis of location, boundaries, land-use, volume and its quality (as a construction material). The map includes entries from geographic areas and specific points. In Norwegian only.
The National Area Information show the diversity of thematic area information available as map services on the web. The map contains all WMS services NGU make available through Norway Digital (The national gedatainfrastructure).
It also shows selected WMS services from government agencies showing data in relation wit hgeological themes. The application provides functionality that allows the user to choose themes desired presented simultaneously and in wich order. In Norwegian only.
Find your way in the multitude of geochemical data in Norway! We have identified several hundred datasets from the 1960s onwards, that together with their respective reports are put on the map for easier access. A few clicks and swipes, and you will get an overwiev of what is available, with links to reports and data. If you need datasets, you can download these one by one, but first time around, you will have to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a username (your email address) and a password generated by NGU.

This permafrost map offers information about ground temperatures from boreholes and mini loggers (MTDs) near the surface at the mainland of Norway. The database was established during the International Polar Year in 2007 as one of the main objectives of the research project Thermal State of Permafrost in Norway and Svalbard.
The data is organized into study areas, giving overview information. A study area contains one or more measurement points, which in turn is (1) a borehole or (2) miniloggers measuring near-surface temperature outside boreholes. Temperature data in boreholes may be temperature series with time (monitoring) or temperature with depth (logs). Near-surface temperature data is temperature series with time only. The database may also hold photographs of study areas (overview) or measurement points (detail). In Norwegian only.

The Geology in my Municipality map organize and present the geological knowledge so that geology increasingly incorporated into planning processes, both locally and regionally. Geology is important both for economic development, planning of new residential areas, resource management, water supply, environmental impact assessment (EIA) and risk and vulnerability analyzes.
The geological information presented in the application are structured by topic areas that are known in planning processes: Landscape, Resources and Safety. The application allows for looking into issues relating to such topics, with the possibility to go deeper into the data structure and content by clicking for more mapping functionality to bring up more detailed characteristics, to see product sheet and to download data.
