In response to the need for updated topographic maps, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has developed and made available a new national map series called the US Topo. Production of these maps began in earnest in June 2009. In a little over a year, the USGS National Geospatial Technical Operations Center (NGTOC) has published more than 25,000 7.5-minute cells.
