GeotIS - The digital geothermal energy atlas

Discover new heat sources with GeotIS

The geothermal information system GeotIS is a freely accessible digital information system on geothermal energy and offers you extensive opportunities to investigate the potential use of geothermal resources in your region.

Use the start button to start researching directly or find out more about geothermal energy and its various possible uses on our pages.

The system was developed by LIAG Institute for Applied Geophysics together with various universities, research institutions and companies on behalf of the German Bundestag.

Thanks to its extensive range of tools, GeotIS offers numerous research options from the initial overview to the calculation of possible returns.

We use the data collected from several decades of geoscientific investigations to present a model of the subsurface that is as detailed as possible. Our data and models are regularly updated and adapted to the latest findings.
