Geological Services Division

This division at GSD has three sections which are the Geological Mapping Section, Environmental Geology Section and the Cartographic Services, GIS and Documentation Section.

Geological Mapping Section

This section deals with geological mapping within the designated boundaries of the country. Both regional and detailed geological maps of the country are generated by this section. So far 1:1,000,000; 1:250,000 and 1:100,000 geological maps are available at the Survey.

Environmental Geology, Geohazard Assessment and Seismology Section

Anthropogenic protection forms part of the mandate of GSD. This is through mapping and assessment of all geo related hazards which include earthquakes, landslides and volcanic activities among others that may impact negatively on human and animal life including infrastructure. Information on geological disasters prone areas are displayed on maps which may be used by the community in decision making when coming up with any forms of infrastructural development.

Cartographic Services, GIS and Documentation Section

This section is a geo - data documentation and archiving center. Both digital and analogue data formats are processed and stored at this center. Users of geological data are more than welcome to access this data currently stored at GSD headquarters in Zomba but with plans to extend access at its regional offices in Lilongwe and Mzuzu. For commercial purposes, various forms of the geological data may be obtained at a fee.
