IODP provides pdf, jpg, and eps maps of drilled sites from all scientific ocean drilling programs through the JOIDES Resolution Science Operator. To add and visualize data in Google Earth or through other formats, IODP also maintains the following files:

  • Drilled Holes: Provides the location of all holes drilled during the scientific ocean drilling programs. Holes are added to these files once the Preliminary Report for the expedition is published. If available, water depth, meters of core recovered, links to core and log data, and links to the visual core description are provided. These files were last updated with available data in September 2021.
    • KML link (requires an internet connection for data and automatic updates)
    • KML file (downloadable)
    • CSV file (downloadable)
  • Scheduled Expeditions: Reflects decisions as of September 2021 and shows the location of all proposed sites for planned expeditions. The data is collected from the expedition’s Scientific Prospectus or, if the Scientific Prospectus is not available, the drilling proposal. The files contain the expedition name, site name and coordinates, planned expedition dates, original proposal number, platform, co-chiefs, and a link to the expedition website. Once the Preliminary Report for the expedition is published, the expedition is moved to the Drilled Holes files.
    • KML link (requires an internet connection for data and automatic updates)
    • KML file (downloadable)
    • CSV file (downloadable)
  • Proposed Sites: Shows the location of all sites in Active Proposals under review or awaiting scheduling as of September 2021. Sites from declined proposals are not included. The files contain the proposal name, site names and coordinates, lead proponent, review stage, and proposed platform. Sites from revisions, updates, and addenda might not be included.
