As well as data storage, GeoVault allows you to search for Multi-Client and Released data.
GeoVault is run by Bridgeporth Ltd and the British Geological Survey (BGS) who have years of experience working with gravity and magnetic data and can offer the benefit of secure long term digital archive capabilities at BGS headquarters. They saw that many exploration companies had good data but:
GeoVault solved these problems by providing a central repository of a company's non-seismic geophysical data. By being web based anyone who has permission can access the data 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world. Find out more

Bridgeporth Ltd (An AustinBridgeporth Company) and the BGS enter into an agreement to form a Joint Venture which will provide a similar service to FieldBank. The name of the service is changed to GeoVault, which encapsulates that the service is not restricted to potential field data.
FieldBank (www.fieldbank.com) was established as an online data management system designed to store and retrieve non-seismic geophysical data. The service was a joint venture between ARKeX (formerly ARK Geophysics Ltd) and the British Geological Survey (BGS). Broadly speaking, ARKeX provided the commercial front end to FieldBank as well as conditioning of data to be archived and the BGS performed the populating of the (initially) POSC modified data tables, maintenance of the software as well as ensuring that the IT side of FieldBank complies with robust IT practices (i.e. backups etc).
