Small-Scale Web Services

The National Map offers Web Map Services (WMS) that lets you connect to the small-scale data using your Web browser, geographic information system (GIS), or desktop mapping program to visualize and dynamically access and retrieve small-scale data. These services will be accessible through 2019, and then will be retired permanently. A subset of the small-scale web services will continue to be available into the future from The National Map Services Page.

You can connect to nationalmap.gov to display or use our data in your own maps and applications. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) provides open standards for a variety of web services.

The web services are now available through the ESRI REST services API and in the following open formats listed in the table below.
