Maps- GIS Data Carousel
USGS is a primary source of geographic information system (GIS) data. Our data and information is presented in spatial and geographic formats, including The National Map, Earth Explorer, GloVIS, LandsatLook, and much more.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has created flood-inundation maps for selected streamgage sites in North and South Carolina. These maps depict the approximate area that would be inundated at selected water levels, ranging from approximately top-of-bank to a selected maximum water level.
This interactive map shows current and cumulative rainfall total for precipitation sites in Virginia. Map provides real-time precipitation radar image to overlay from National Weather Service.
The Hazard Exposure Reporting and Analytics (HERA) application was developed to provide users with insight on potential population, economic, land cover, and infrastructure vulnerability resulting from a given hazard. Interactive maps and graphics allow users to examine hazard exposure for individual communities, to compare exposure for multiple communities and changes in hazard exposure.

This web mapping application provides access to many of Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center’s most commonly used map layers they use in support of science efforts occurring throughout the Colorado River corridor.
View topographic and bathymetric contour data and simulate Neosho River inundation areas for selected (and real-time) water-surface elevations at Grand Lake and the Neosho River streamgage near Commerce

The FishVis Mapper is the product of an Upper Midwest and Great Lakes LCC project, “A Regional Decision Support Tool for Identifying Vulnerabilities of Riverine Habitat and Fishes to Climate Change” that developed an approach for predicting fish species occurrence under current climate conditions and project how fish species occurrence may change under future climate conditions.
USGS Flood Inundation Maps , along with Internet information regarding current stage from the USGS streamgage, provide emergency management personnel and residents with information that is critical for flood-response activities, such as evacuations and road closures, as well as for post-flood recovery efforts.
New York Nowcast predicts water quality conditions at select beach swimming areas in NY. The Nowcast estimates conditions by merging environment and climate data with variables measured at a beach by 8 AM each morning and entering them into a computer program which provides a probability from 1 to 100 as to whether or not the beach has exceeded the bathing-water standard of 235 units of E. coli.
