Based on the need to record, coordinate, maintain and summarize the geological information received as a result of these works, 1937 On November 27, by the decision of the Council of the USSR People's Assembly, the RA State Geological Department was established under the "Geological Fund of the Republic of Armenia", which is still implementing its functions.

It will be noted that digitalization of geological information available in the "Republican Geological Fund" is coming to an end. By the end of the year, it will be fully accessible online.
