In 2015, the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program (NGGDPP) sponsored data and collection preservation projects conducted by state geological surveys. Descriptions of state preservation projects, including access to preserved collections via state geological survey websites and the NGGDPP National Digital Catalog, is provided.
USGS interactive Story Map describing the Mineral Deposits of the Midcontinent Rift System.
This is an interactive version of the Alaska geologic map database which allows a user to view and access many features of the database and map through a standard web browser. In other words, there is no need for or knowledge of specialized GIS software.
A geologic map of the Eastern Piedmont and Fall Zone within Virginia and North Carolina. This map includes Coastal Plain sediments, rift-basin rocks, tectonic rocks, intrusive rocks, metamorphic terranes and faults.
The USGS partners with the Association of American State Geologists (AASG) to develop a distributed archive of standardized geoscience information for the nation.
CSMP is a cooperative program to create a comprehensive coastal and marine geologic and habitat base map series for all of California's State waters. Data collected during this project reveal the seafloor offshore of the California coast in unprecedented detail and provide an ecosystem context for the effective management of this precious marine resource.
This portal is a “go to” source for maps related to ocean and coastal mapping. Information is organized by geography or region, by theme, and by the year data was published.
This web interface allows users to explore a 3D geologic framework model developed for the Columbia Plateau regional aquifer system as part of a USGS assessment of groundwater availability. The geologic model consists of geologic units with their associated thickness and elevations.
