Retirement of The National Map Seamless Server Viewer

NGP is retiring The National Map Seamless Server Viewer by the end of July 2012. Access to the Seamless Viewer will redirect to The National Map Viewer and Download Platform page for up to 90 days before permanently redirecting to The National Map Viewer.

The National Map Viewer offers similar capabilities for service access and data download previously available with the Seamless Viewer. Retirement of the Seamless Viewer culminates efforts by NGP to transition multiple viewers into just one viewer to create a one-stop location for visualization and delivery of its public domain vector and raster data. To download data with The National Map Viewer: 1) Zoom to your area of interest; 2) Click the Download tool on the right side of the title bar; 3) Choose a reference area polygon; 4) Select available data products; 5) Add selected products to the Cart; and 6) Checkout.
