Data Access Within the Coreshed Virtual Core Library

a sample of hyperspectral imaging results

In addition to the reports and processed data files offered in DNR data releases, Corescan has provided hyperspectral core imagery results to the DNR within the Coreshed virtual core library. Coreshed is a proprietary online viewing platform that organizes project imagery and provides in-depth visualization tools that support geological interpretations of scanned drill core. DNR and Corescan have partnered to extend the DNR’s access to its Coreshed-hosted data to the general public. Individuals can create their own Coreshed accounts to log in and explore the project data.


Coreshed Access: Log in or create a new account to view project data.


Presentation of DNR Corescan project data within Coreshed is offered on an "as-is" basis, using the same parameters, content options, and mineral keys that have been selected by DNR geologists to visualize project results. Data is also available without the visualization tools offered in Coreshed on the News & Data Releases page of this site.
