Accessibility and the U.S. Geological Survey

The USGS is committed to and is making every possible effort to ensure that all electronic and information technology developed, procured, maintained, or used by the USGS is accessible to people with disabilities, including both our employees and the customers we serve.

If you cannot fully access the information on a particular page, please contact the USGS Section 508 Coordinator (see Contact information below) or the owner of the website. To enable us to respond in a manner that will be of most help to you, please indicate the nature of the accessibility problem, your preferred format (electronic format, for example ASCII, standard print, large print, and so on), the web address of the requested material, and complete contact information so we can reach you if questions arise while fulfilling your request. We may provide the information to you in an alternate format.
