Data Catalogs & Portals
Data Catalogs and Portals are places where one can search for data. While Repositories physically hold datasets, Data Catalogs and Portals provide searchable directories of data. Submitting your datasets to Data Portals and Catalogs makes them more visible and more likely to be employed by others.
The USGS provides a number of searchable online data catalogs for specific types of datasets. Learn more about USGS Catalogs.
There are many additional portals for USGS data, including Data.gov. Learn more about other data catalogs.
