GBIF-US

Species observations for the United States and Territories.

topoView

topoView is an easy-to-use application for browsing the Historical Topographic Map Collection and US Topo maps

LandsatLook

Landsatlook visualization client enables users rapid online viewing and create dynamic custom mosaics from scenes within the Landsat archive for an area of interest. Allows users to customize their mosaic using three band combinations, select spectral indices and quality assessment band filtering.  

Habitat Vulnerability Assessment for Wintering American Black Ducks

We estimated food availability among five main wetland cover types used by overwintering American Black Ducks: subtidal, fresh water, high marsh, low marsh, and mudflat. Bioenergetics models used to inform North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) can be simplified into two major components: energetic demand and energetic supply. 

Test Sites Catalog

The Test Site Catalog contains information about worldwide radiometric, geometric, and spatial calibration sites used for post launch characterization and calibration of Earth observation sensors.

 

USGS LMG WSC RESTORE Data Visualization Tool

This application provides a set of interactive data visualization tools to explore datasets generated by USGS researchers for the RESTORE project. The purpose of this tool is to help stakeholders, decision makers and other interested users access these datasets and develop a better understanding of spatial and temporal streamflow patterns in the Lower Mississippi-Gulf Region.

National Water Dashboard (NWD)

The National Water Dashboard (NWD) is a mobile, interactive tool that provides real-time information on water levels, weather, and flood forecasts - all in one place on a computer, smartphone, or other mobile device. The NWD presents real-time stream, lake and reservoir, precipitation, and groundwater data from more than 13,500 USGS observation stations across the country.

WaterQualityWatch

WaterQualityWatch provides access to real-time water-quality data collected at more than 2,000 stream sites throughout the United States, including streamflow, water temperature, specific conductance, pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and nitrate.

NWIS Current Water Data for the Nation (Real-Time Data)

The USGS provides real-time or near-real-time conditions water data at sites across the Nation. Current data typically are recorded at 15- to 60-minute intervals, stored onsite, and then transmitted to USGS offices every 1 to 4 hours, depending on the data relay technique used. Recording and transmission times may be more frequent during critical events.

USGS Mobile Water Data

The USGS Mobile Water Data site highlights USGS current conditions water data in a mobile-friendly website, allowing users to monitor conditions at a favorite river or stream or locate nearby monitoring locations. All USGS current conditions water data is available.

WaterWatch (surface water)

WaterWatch displays maps, graphs, and tables describing real-time, recent, and past streamflow conditions for the United States, including flood and droughts. Real-time information generally is updated on an hourly basis.

Hydrologic Unit Maps

The U.S. is sub-divided into successively smaller hydrologic units which are classified into four levels: regions, sub-regions, accounting units, and cataloging units. Each unit is identified by a unique hydrologic unit code (HUC) consisting of two to eight digits based on its classification. This site provides information and data for current and historical hydrologic units, names, and numbers.
