LidarExplorer

An online application that allows users to search and visualize Light Detection and Ranging (lidar) and its derived products. Users can find lidar, DEM, topobathymetric, and orthorectified radar image (ORI) data. The application uses Entwine Point Tile (EPT) format to help visualize projects in a web-based 3D viewer for quick views of the data. It also allows for cloud processing

USGS Trail Data Portal

Do we have your trails? The USGS Trail Data Portal allows land managers to submit their trail data for potential inclusion into the nationwide trails dataset. The dataset must have at least 50 miles of trails, be in the public domain, and pass a data review to be included. Email trails@usgs.gov for more information.

TRAILS – Trail Routing, Analysis, and Information Linkage System

TRAILS – Trail Routing, Analysis, and Information Linkage System is a trail planning and collaboration tool that utilizes geospatial analysis to determine potential routes for new trail connections or to reroute an existing trail.  

USGS Trails Explorer

The USGS Trails Explorer visualizes the current distribution of aggerated trails.  

Coastal Salinity Index

The location of the freshwater–saltwater interface along the coast is an important factor in the ecological and socioeconomic dynamics of coastal communities. Salinity is a critical response variable that integrates hydrologic and coastal dynamics including sea level, tides, winds, precipitation, streamflow, and tropical storms.
