The Geothermal Information System (GeotIS) provides information and data collections about deep aquifers, which are relevant for geothermal exploitation.

The data access takes place on the desktop of the module "Geothermal Information System for Germany". The features of the module are presented in the following.

Map window:
The map window displays the map. The functions of the control panel and their counterparts in the submenu navigation in the menu bar are controlling the navigation in the map. The menu bar is located on the left side of the map window and The control panel is above it.
