Use The National Map Viewer and Download Platform to visualize, inspect, and download our most current topographic base map data and products for free. Managed by the USGS National Geospatial Program (NGP), The National Map Viewer provides access to all eight primary data themes of The National Map to include US Topo and historical topographic map products. The viewer platform is extended upon the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency's (NGA) Palanterra x3 Viewer.
Data include: Elevation, Orthoimagery, Hydrography, Geographic Names, Boundaries, Transportation, Structures, and Land Cover, while products include: US Topo and Historical Topo Maps. The National Map Viewer also allows visualization and identification queries (but not downloads) of Other Featured Data, to include Scanned Topo Maps, Ecosystems, Protected Areas, Gap Analysis Program Land Cover, Wetlands, Public Land Survey System, and National Park Service Boundaries. Also included is a Natural Hazards panel to view hazards-related information, such as for earthquakes, floods, wildfires, and weather, along with the U.S. National Grid for emergency response.
To research and download historical USGS data, such as Digital Orthophoto Quadrangles or older high resolution orthoimagery and Digital Line Graphs, or to access lidar point cloud data, go to Earth Explorer.
The first three featured mashups are the top recognized mashup submissions that were part of The National Map User Conference (2011) Mashathon event as recognized by their peers. The categories were: Earth Science; Local, Tribal, Project Case Study; and Innovative Technology.
Other examples are featured collaborations between The National Map and the project area. >> more
Event Mashups highlight Emergency Response, Special Event, or Conferences Demonstrations. These mashups are not necessarily hosted or made by, but are using The National Map. For finding The National Map Hazard Digital Data Special Products library as hosted on HDDS, click more. >> more
