UE Published Maps Products and Services Focus Area

The Published Maps Products and Services (PMPS) Focus Area works with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Geospatial Program (NGP) to develop and build the content of The National Map.

The National Map is a collaborative effort among the USGS and other Federal, State, and local partners to improve and deliver topographic information for the Nation.

The PMPS Focus Area is engaged in improving NPG data holdings, products, and services by: 

  • Identifying partnership opportunities,

  • Engaging in data sharing agreements, and

  • Providing feedback to the NGP about current and future geospatial data and delivery directions.

Applications

  • Education and outreach regarding the applicability and use of NGP products, services, and capabilities.

Future Plans

  • Collaborations through crowdsourcing.
