In 2015, the CSCLR timely released digitalized data such as cores, samples, and thin sections on National Major Core Images Service System. 100,000m core images and their basic descriptions, as well as some chemical analysis data from 205 drilling holes were released in the whole year.

To further provide online services, the CSCLR has fully upgraded the National Major Core Images Service System to achieve integrated management and publishing of the digitalized cores, samples, and thin sections. By Dec 15, 2015, images of 200,000m cores, 7,500 specimens (16,800 images) and 10,000 thin sections (105,000 microscopic images) had been issued, providing strong supports for geological research, prospecting, science popularization and teaching.
