The National Atlas program has ended. Where do I go for more information about its products and services?

The online version of the National Atlas (officially known as the 1997-2014 Edition of the National Atlas of the United States) was removed from service on September 30, 2014. Some of its previous products and services are available from the following USGS sources:

The National Map Small-Scale Collection

A collection of 197 small-scale datasets can be downloaded free at The National Map small-scale data download page. These small-scale datasets originally developed and offered through the National Atlas are considered a part of the National Map framework datasets. The National Map plans to maintain and update the small-scale collection indefinitely.

The National Map offers small-scale web mapping and web feature services at WMS/WFS TNM Small-Scale.

The Set of Dynamic Topographic Maps Illustrating Physical Features will continue to be available at TNM Web site.

Additionally, hundreds of printable maps developed for the National Atlas 1997-2014 Edition can be found at the Printable Maps link.

The USGS Store

The National Atlas wall maps are available for purchase through the USGS Store until supplies are exhausted. No new wall maps will be made. Call 1-888-ASK-USGS (or 303-202-4700 from outside the United States) for information on price and availability.


Over three hundred datasets from the National Atlas can be downloaded from the EarthExplorer Web site.

The National Map and National Atlas Merge

During this year, National Atlas of the United States and The National Map will transition into a combined single source for geospatial and cartographic information. This transformation is projected to streamline access to maps, data and information from the USGS National Geospatial Program (NGP).
