WSGS launches online sales storefront

The Wyoming State Geological Survey (WSGS) has launched an online sales storefront to assist customers ordering WSGS maps and publications.

“The new storefront, which features secure ordering, will enable customers to browse, preview and purchase WSGS maps and publications as well as other pertinent products 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said WSGS sales manager Matt Friess. VISA and MasterCard are accepted.

“The online store features more than 2,500 Wyoming maps and publications, dating from 1918 to present,” Friess said. “These focus on a broad array of subjects relating to Wyoming geology, including mineral and energy resources, stratigraphic information and topography.”

Also available for order from the WSGS are U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographic maps and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) surface maps for Wyoming.

Involved with Friess in the development and implementation of the storefront were David Lucke, WSGS manager of Geographic Information Systems and technical services; Scott Parrill, manager of information technology; and Curtis McCann, information technology specialist and webmaster.

The online publication storefront page is at http://sales.wsgs.wyo.gov/catalog/index.php

Customers can also examine and purchase maps and publications at the WSGS on the University of Wyoming campus, or they can order them by calling the sales office at 307-766-2286, ext. 224, or e-mailing wsgs.sales@wyo.gov.

The mission of the WSGS is to promote the beneficial and environmentally sound use of Wyoming’s vast geologic, mineral and energy resources while helping protect the public from geologic hazards. By providing accurate information and expanding knowledge through the application of geologic principles, the WSGS contributes to economic growth and improvement in the quality of life for Wyoming’s residents.
