Rabbah launched a geospatial application and opened the museum after its facilities were renovated.
Rabat – Minister of Energy, Minerals, and Sustainable Development Aziz Rabbah inaugurated the re-opening of the ministry’s Museum of Geology, Minerals, and Energy on Tuesday after renovations were completed.
Rabbah also launched a mobile application of national geoscience maps the ministry prepared.
In his opening speech, Rabbah said that the preservation of national heritage is of great importance to the ministry. He added that several institutional, legal, educational, and media measures have taken place to preserve, value, and promote Morocco’s heritage nationally and internationally.
The minister stressed that Morocco’s national geological heritage is the main lever of Morocco’s attractiveness in terms of tourism and reflects the richness and diversity of its geological history.
Rabbah said that the application’s goal is to evaluate geological data for the national geological authority, facilitate access to knowledge, promote scientific geological mapping in Morocco, enable the exchange of data by developing databases and information systems, and enhance the geological and mineral attractions of the country.
The application will provide all the maps Morocco has made in the last 100 years. It will also give users access to future workshops through search engines linking objective data to the administrative divisions of the country. Rabbah believes the app will help national and regional decision-making.
