(DOGAMI) received American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2008 funding to compile all DOGAMI geothermal information and make it available to the public and industry. The Oregon Geothermal Direct-Use Sites (OGDU-1) publication is part of that work. OGDU-1 is DOGAMI’s geospatial database that currently stores and manages Oregon's geothermal Direct-Use information. Please read the OGDU-1 shapefile metadata.

This map shows the locations of known direct-use geothermal applications of the following type:

The shapefile stores 56 points with information regarding the type of direct-use application and its location, flow, capacity, energy use, and contact information. Each symbol on the map represents one direct-use application unless the symbol has a number directly below it. These cases represent multiple applications in one vicinity. An example is the 550 residences using space heating in Klamath Falls, Oregon. More precise and accurate location information, where available, can be found in the direct-use geothermal database.

The attribute data for points depicted on this map were primarily collected from the following sources:
