AAPG Datapages, a wholly owned subsidiary of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, was created to archive and publish digital content of value to petroleum geologists ­– and to make such content easily available to professionals, students and others with an interest in petroleum geology, worldwide.

We make content available for purchase in a variety of ways:

  • CD/DVD

Internet Archives access – subscription and pay-per-view

Datapages Exploration Objects™: maps, cross-sections, seismic lines and other objects extracted from archived publications, geo-referenced and formatted for GIS – available for download on a subscription basis. DEO also gives customers links to source articles, which can also be downloaded by subscribers.


To better serve our customers, we are continuously expanding the content we make available. And we welcome opportunities to enhance our offerings through win/win alliances with other organizations.
