USGS is a primary source of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Data. Our data and information is presented both spatially and geographically including The National Map, Earth Explorer, GloVIS, LandsatLook, and much more. Start exploring by topic below.
The Upper Mississippi River Restoration (UMRR) Program Long Term Resource Monitoring (LTRM) element has collected millions of records of information over 20+ years. Fisheries, water quality, vegetation, and invertebrates have all been sampled. Geographic locations were collected for all sampling points.
This dataset includes spatial locations in the Pacific Northwest where streamflow observations were recorded. For the purpose of this investigation, all streamflow observations were converted into wet or dry indicator values.
Evapotranspiration units and potential areas of groundwater discharge delineated July 20–24, 2009 in the upper Humboldt River Basin, northeastern Nevada
The data set consists of 2 separate items for the upper Humboldt River Basin:
1. evapotranspiration units
2. potential areas of groundwater discharge
Groundwater-level and groundwater-level change contours for the Lahontan Valley shallow aquifer near Fallon, Nevada, 2012
One dataset contains contours representing water levels based on depth-to-groundwater measurements made at 98 wells in July 2012 in the Lahontan Valley. The second dataset contains contours representing water level change in the shallow aquifer in Lahontan Valley from 1992-2012 based on depth-to-groundwater measurements made in 73 wells in 1992 and 2012, with limited measurements made in 2013...
Groundwater discharge areas for the 14 hydrographic areas in the middle Humboldt River Basin, north-central Nevada
This data set contains polygons representing the groundwater discharge areas for the 14 hydrographic areas in the middle Humboldt River Basin, north-central Nevada.
This digital raster dataset represents depth to pre-Cenozoic bedrock in northern Nevada as published in Chapter 6: Geophysical Methods and Application in U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 2218, Assessment of Metallic and Mineral Resources in the Humboldt River Basin, Northern Nevada by D.A. Ponce.
Irrigated Acreage Delineated from Landsat-Derived Maximum Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) 1975-2010, Walker River Basin Nevada and California
These data represent the extent and spatial distribution of irrigated acreage delineated from maximum Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) derived from Landsat scenes in the Walker River Basin, California and Nevada, at five-year intervals from 1975-2010.
These data present a ground-water inventory of existing geospatial data and other information needed to determine the extent and characteristics of the aquifers in the Tahoe Basin.
Data - Removing roads from the National Land Cover Database to create improved urban maps for the United States, 1992-2011
To better map the urban class and understand how urban lands change over time, we removed rural roads and small patches of rural development from the NLCD developed class and created four wall-to-wall maps (1992, 2001, 2006, and 2011) of urban land.
To investigate the rates, causes, and spatial and temporal patterns of forest harvest on private tracts throughout the Cascade Mountains, we relied on a new generation of annual land-use/land-cover (LULC) products created from the application of the Continuous Change Detection and Classification (CCDC) algorithm to Landsat satellite imagery collected from 1985 to 2014.
StreamStats is a Web application that incorporates a Geographic Information System (GIS) to provide users with access to an assortment of analytical tools that are useful for a variety of water-resources planning and management purposes, and for engineering and design purposes.
