Mapping, Remote Sensing, and Geospatial Data
Data about Earth and its resources are only useful if available in a format that is understandable and accessible. We provide the Nation with ready access to natural science information that supports smart decisions about how to respond to natural risks and manage natural resources.
The USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center Science Processing Architecture (ESPA) On-Demand Interface is used to request processing and services for Landsat Science Products and some MODIS archives.
The Bulk Download Application is an easy-to-use tool for downloading large quantities of satellite imagery and geospatial data.
Once scenes are added to a Bulk Order via Earth Explorer, the Bulk Download Application can be used to automatically retrieve them with little to no user interaction.
Archive of Ground Penetrating Radar and Differential Global Positioning System Data Collected in April 2016 from Fire Island, New York
Archive of ground penetrating radar (GPR) and post-processed differential global positioning system (DGPS) data collected from beach and back-barrier environments on Fire Island, New York, April 6–13, 2016. Data can be used to map shallow subsurface sediments and to image deeper stratigraphic features.

Archive of HRSP profiles annotated with header information, converted SEG-Y files, navigation data, and cruise trackline shapefiles. Data collection dates and locations: July 1–15, 1981, Chandeleur and Mississippi Sounds; April 9–23, 1981, Gulf of Mexico; June 21–27, 1990, Mississippi Sound and the Gulf of Mexico; July 10–11 and July 21–27, 1991, Mississippi Sound and the Gulf of Mexico.
Aerial imagery and photogrammetric products from unmanned aerial systems (UAS) flights over the Lake Ontario shoreline at Sodus Bay, New York, July 12 to 14, 2017
This data release includes images tagged with locations determined from the UAS GPS; tables with updated estimates of camera positions and attitudes based on the photogrammetric reconstruction; tables listing locations of the base stations, ground control points, and transect points; geolocated, RGB-colored point clouds; orthomosaic images; and digital elevation models for each of the regions...
Archive of Digitized Analog Boomer Seismic Reflection Data Collected during USGS Cruise USFHC in Mississippi Sound and Bay St. Louis, September 1989
Archive of HRSP profiles annotated with header information, converted SEG-Y files, navigation data, cruise trackline files, logbooks, and annotated/core location maps. Geophysical surveys were conducted between September 13 and 19, 1989, within Bay St. Louis and the adjacent Mississippi Sound offshore of Hancock County, Mississippi.
Sea-Floor Sediment Samples, Seabed Imagery, and CTD Instrument Data Collected on Stellwagen Bank in August 2017, U.S. Geological Survey Field Activity 2017-043-FA
The data collected in this study will aid research on the ecology of fish and invertebrate species that inhabit the region. On August 22 and 23, 2017, the U.S. Geological Survey, in collaboration with the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, conducted a research cruise aboard the Sanctuary’s Research Vessel Auk, visiting 39 locations within the sanctuary.
