How do I get more detailed information than what is in the National Atlas?

There are several ways to get more detailed information than what you find in the National Atlas.

For basic map themes, such as streams, roads, and boundaries, we recommend visiting The National Map page.

Also, the National Atlas Map Maker includes links to sites where you can view detailed aerial photographs and large-scale topographic maps.

National Atlas thematic datasets come from many different Federal agencies and these organizations are often the best sources for more detailed information. Links from the National Atlas to Federal Web sites are provided in two ways. The Identify function in the Map Maker returns information with links to additional sites. There are also links provided in our National Atlas Data Download page. Click on a map layer name in the first column of the table on this page or on the map layer name in the Map Maker.

You may also find detailed datasets by searching online catalogs such as the Geospatial Platform.

Finally, the U.S. Geological Survey offers a diverse collection of natural science information in digital and printed formats. You can call them toll-free at 1-888-ASK-USGS
