In recent years, VNIIOkeangeologia was carrying out integrated processing of deep well drilling materials within the shelf and the Western Arctic islands. The available information made it possible in 2017 to start creating an electronic resource in the format of a GIS project — Digital Atlas of Stratigraphic Wells Drilled on Western Arctic Islands. GIS technology allows accumulating both digitised archived information and the results of the latest integrated geological and geochemical studies of available rock material into a single electronic resource. Over more than a century of geological research on the Arctic islands, a wealth of material on the Anzhu Islands is now collected and studied, often in unrelated and single paper copies. The need to collect, digitise and analyse the results of paleontological research resulted in creation of the Biostratigraphy Atlas in format of GIS project. The created electronic resource allows correlating the enclosing formations with the other Arctic regions.
