The Federal Geological Office (German: Geologische Bundesanstalt) or GBA in Vienna is a subordinate agency of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Science and Research (Bundesministerium für Wissenschaft und Forschung, BMWF) and is the central point for information and advice in the field of earth sciences for the Republic of Austria. The most important product of the GBA is a range of geological maps. These appear in various scales both as map series and as regional maps. They form the basis for responses to questions in many areas of business (waste disposal, water supply, transport routes, raw materials, …) and also for research. The GBA is located in the district of Landstraße in Vienna.
