The Central Geological Survey (CGS), under the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) is the only government
agency responsible for geological survey and geoscience research. The fundamental work includes geologic
survey, research, and compilation of geological map sheets that provide basic geological information.
The Survey is also involved in investigations of environmental geology, hydrogeology, geological hazards,
active faults, landslides, engineering geology, and mineral resources that are important to national
economic and urban development and major construction projects.
The Survey was founded on November 20, 1978 to replace the Provincial Geological Survey of Taiwan and to
enhance the functioning of a national geological survey.
The Survey, under the leadership of the Director and Deputy Director functions through six technical
units: Planning Office, Regional Geology Division, Active Tectonics Division, Environmental &
Engineering Geology Division, Geological Resources Division, and Geological Information Division. Administrative
support is provided by the Secretarial Office, Accounting Office, Personnel Office, and Discipline Office.
All of the research work is supported by laboratories well equipped with high precision instruments.
