Information must be valid, reliable and accessible. The majority of thematic geological data providing by Polish Geological Institute is now available and published on-line by internet applications. Detailed Geological Map of Poland, Hydrogeological Map of Poland and Geoenvironmental Map of Poland at 1 : 50 000 scale are the biggest cartographic national projects which have been implemented in last years.
