Mojave Groundwater Data

Interactive map of the Mojave and Morongo groundwater basins.  Data layers include sites and data for groundwater levels, water quality, and land subsidence.  Groundwater data spans 1994 to the present.

USGS Wildland Fire Science: an Overview

This is a Story Map that provides a broad overview of the research performed at USGS that is relevant to the field of wildland fire science.

Current Streamflow and Water-Quality Monitoring at Select Sites in the Animas and San Juan River Basins, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah

The USGS monitors current streamflow and water-quality conditions at various sites in the Animas and San Juan River Basins in Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah, including areas below the Gold King Mine release area. These streamgages provide continuous data on streamflow and select water-quality constituents including specific conductance, water temperature, pH, and turbidity.

Presence of Microbes and the Distribution of Climatic, Environmental, and Geochemical Variables Web Mapping Application

This web mapping application allows users to make comparisons between national scale environmental datasets and Bacillus species and Bacillus anthracis detection results. The datasets include soil physical, chemical, and mineralogical data, current and historical climate data, landcover, and biological surveys.

Water Quality Data Viewer for New York

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists are leading a diverse range of studies to address CyanoHAB issues in water bodies throughout the United States, using a combination of traditional methods and emerging technologies, and in collaboration with numerous partners. 

Global Island Explorer

The Global Island Explorer has 340,691 global island polygons grouped into four size classes: continental mainlands, big islands, small islands, and very small islands. Each polygon was derived from a new 30m resolution Global Shoreline Vector (GSV) dataset that was created by interpreting coastal shorelines from 2014 satellite imagery in Google Earth Engine.

Map Projection On the Web

While some instrument teams provide science-ready versions of their data, many other archives must first be processed by the individual researcher. POW provides users with calibrated cartographic images that can be used for geologic mapping, analysis in a Geographic Image System (GIS), change detection, merging of dissimilar instrument images, and use in a host of other scientific applications.

Planetary Geologic Mapping Program

The goals for this website are to catalog completed geologic maps and to help track the progress of currently funded maps. If you would like to propose for a mapping investigation, check the appropriate planetary body in the map index or refer to the various mapping pages (linked under Maps above) to see which geologic maps may have already been published or are currently in progress. 

Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature

Planetary nomenclature is used to uniquely identify a feature on the surface of a planet or satellite so that the feature can be easily located, described, and discussed.

See the FAQ for more information on common questions.

For general inquiries regarding planetary nomenclature or the Gazetteer website, please contact Tenielle Gaither by emailing tgaither@usgs.gov.

Planetary Image Locator Tool (PILOT)

PILOT (Planetary Image Locator Tool) is an online data portal used by planetary scientists and cartographers to search through the raw archives of the PDS Cartography and Imaging Science Node. It searches through a large catalog of visual, infrared and spectrometer camera images taken of planetary bodies in our solar system. For information on specific missions, please visit the Data Portal. 

USGS Domestic Continuous (Unconventional) Oil & Gas Assessments, 2000-Present

Interactively explore assessment summary information for continuous (unconventional) assessments conducted at the USGS from 2000-2018. The assessment results data used to generate this visualization can be downloaded here in Excel Format.  These data represent all assessment results for Continuous Assessments only from 2000-2018.

Topographic Change Viewer

The USGS has developed a national inventory of significant topographic changes based on seamless multitemporal elevation data and land cover data. The National Elevation Dataset (NED) and the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data form a unique pair of seamless elevation datasets that can be used to detect and analyze 20th century topographic surface changes in the United States.
