Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted.  For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown


High-performance Computing

The HPC project evolved from the Multi-Resolution Raster (MRR) research project and it focuses on efficient processing of geospatial data in the supercomputing domain for the benefit of spatial analytics and spatial data handling. This investigation is highly applicable to our research vision within CEGIS of massive, quick processing and production of National Geospatial Program (NGP) products.
