Mississippi Alluvial Plain: Regional Geophysical Survey

The USGS Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP) Regional Water Availability Study began airborne geophysical mapping to obtain high-resolution information about the hydrogeologic structure and properties of the aquifer. This geonarrative showcases the geophysical data collected in this effort and provides a three-dimensional view into the Mississippi Alluvial Plain subsurface. 

Mississippi Alluvial Plain: Shellmound, MS Geophysical Survey

A high-resolution airborne and ground-based geophysical survey was conducted near Shellmound, Mississippi as part of the Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP) Regional Water Availability Study. This geonarrative showcases the geophysical data used in support of this effort, compiles complementary datasets, and provides additional resources to the user.

Airborne Geophysical Survey Inventory of the US Interactive Application

Feature Layer - data documents the spatial footprint and survey details of airborne geophysical surveys in the United States.

USMIN Mineral Deposit Database: Prospect and Mine-Related Features

Symbols indicating mining-related features digitized from historical USGS topographic maps in the western part of the conterminous US. Includes prospect pits, mine shafts and adits, quarries, open-pit mines, tailings piles and ponds, gravel and borrow pits, and other features. Data from USGS Data Release, https://doi.org/10.5066/F78W3CHG.

USGS Digital Spectral Library

References for material identification in remote sensing images. The library contains spectral reflectance data for of hundreds of materials, including minerals, vegetation, organic and volatile compounds, and man-made materials.

Sagebrush Mineral Resource Assessment Data Sources

List of USGS information resources used in carrying out the Sagebrush Mineral Resource Assessment in 2016. Portal to an interactive map and OGC WMS service.

Geochemical and Mineralogical Maps for Soil for the Conterminous U.S.

Online data set provides an estimate of the abundance and spatial distribution of chemical elements and minerals in soils of the conterminous United States and represents a baseline for soil geochemistry and mineralogy against which future changes may be recognized and quantified.

Basement domain map of the conterminous US and Alaska

Seventy-seven major components of the North American continent were delineated at a general scale (1:5,000,000); including the general composition, geological environment, and types of primary metals endowments that can be expected in each domain. Data from USGS Data Series 898.
