Geothermal Prospector

Explore map layers—such as geothermal potential, energy infrastructure, and leasing/ownership information—to determine locations that may be favorable for geothermal energy development.

The Geothermal Prospector is an interactive map for exploring potential geothermal energy resources by location. The tool gives users a way to visualize relevant environmental, geothermal, infrastructure, and legal/policy data layers to determine locations that may be favorable for geothermal energy development.

The U.S. Department of Energy's Geothermal Technologies Office aims to increase the likelihood of success in geothermal development by providing comprehensive data in standardized formats from a wide variety of sources. The tool supports geothermal resource assessment and data exploration in the contiguous United States as a means to accelerate near-term geothermal growth through exploration.
