This is the third thoroughly revised edition of the first one published in 1967.

The map was coordinated by Dr. Carlos Schobbenhaus and was achieved thanks to the scientific, technical and financial support of the Geological Survey of Brazil (CPRM) and technical contributions from all the South American geological surveys, as well as the marine geology laboratories of Brazil and Argentina.

The trilingual legend (Portuguese, Spanish, English) of the map, besides the geological and stratigraphic data, includes a scale of the tectonic phases and indications of the different degrees of metamorphism.

This document evidences the striking contrasts between the precambrien shields of Guyana and Brazil and the long Andean mountain range bordering the ouest coastline of the continent, and the vast sedimentary basins that separate both units.

The map available for sale is the reprint carried out in France in 2005 at the scale of 1:5 500 000.

The digital version of the map in ArcInfo format was released in 2003. For users not familiar with ArcInfo, the CD includes the Arc Explorer 2 software that allows the visualization and consultation of GIS databases.
