The controls of the distribution and environments of formation of large and superlarge mineral accumulations stand as of the most important problems in geology today. Presently, preparation of the New World Map of Large & Superlarge Mineral Deposits (electronic version) has been conducted as a part of the IGCP Project No. 354 in the Vernadsky State Geological Museum with cooperation of "Aerogeologia". The data have been collected from various data bases and from more than 200 published sources in six languages. The general goal of the project is to unite a large amount of information using the most advanced software and hardware technology available to provide tools for data management at a level unreachable for "paper" methods.
