A signification digitization effort commenced at the University of Hawai‘i in 2011 via support of the DOE-funded National Geothermal Data System (NDGS) project, which ended Dec 31, 2013. The digitization work has continued thanks to additional support by Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) and Department of Business Economic Development and Tourism (DBEDT). Our top priorities were digitization of i) the geothermal documents within the Hawaii Geothermal Collection, and ii) the Hawaii State Water Well files. Additionally, a number of Historical Articles, Maps, Photos, and Videos were donated to the project by various individuals, agencies, and organizations. We are continuing to compile these into this Historical Geothermal section of the website.
