On the first view it doesn't look like the IGME 1:5 mio (Kristine's map).
Unfortunately the links from Ollie are not working. I got only the
information from the abstract
(http://www.klimacampus.de/631+M56bba03a346.html?&L=1)  but I contacted the

Does it have anything to do with Kristine's 1:5M map? 
(its from Germany)

Hi Marcus,

I was shown this map only a few days ago.  The associated publication is
here: http://www.agu.org/pubs/crossref/2012/2012GC004370.shtml. They provide
the references to their source datasets in a table in the article

I think that they started their work some time ago - for instance, they have
used the 2008 and earlier editions of the Australian 1:1 million scale data
rather than the more up-to-date 2010 edition, and they reference the 1990
CGMW map of the world, not the 2009 CGMW map.

Has anyone heard of the global lithological map below and do you know whose
data it is based on?
