USGS Map Viewer

The USGS Map Viewer provides a general purpose TerriaMap based geospatial data visualization platform where data publishers can assemble catalogs of spatial datasets with a combination of hand curation and federation of online data services.

Hydrologic Imagery Visualization and Information System (HIVIS)

Many USGS water-resource monitoring sites have webcams installed to allow remote visibility of current water and environmental conditions, identify technical issues, verify remote measurements, and gather data for visual analyses. The Hydrologic Imagery Visualization and Information System (HIVIS) provides access to still-frame images and timelapse videos from our active webcams.

JACIE Search Tool

Annual Joint Agency Commercial Imagery Evaluation (JACIE) workshops engage federal agencies, their partners, and the commercial remote sensing industry to understand the characteristics and capabilities of current and new data sources, along with the quality of data they provide. This Tool allows the searching of presentations from the workshops, that started in 2001. 


Landsat 2 Overview

After launch in 1975, Landsat 2 began to collect remote sensing data. Outliving its one-year design, Landsat 2 achieved seven years of operation. With two Landsats in orbit, scientists gleaned additional views of the planet.

With this uninterrupted data, the record of the Earth's land surface could always be recorded, allowing for reliable imaging for scientists, policy makers, and land managers.

CRSSP Imagery-Derived Requirements (CIDR) Entry Tool

The CRSSP Imagery-Derived Requirements (CIDR) Entry Tool allows the entry of imagery requirements, review existing requirements, or explore potential data partnerships. 

Land Remote Sensing Satellites Online Compendium

The Land Remote Sensing Satellites Online Compendium contains details about past, present and future Earth observing satellites and the sensors they carry. This information compiled by staff at the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Pennsylvania Drought Condition Monitoring

The Pennsylvania Drought Condition Monitoring Application shows the current drought status for each county and hydrologic conditions for precipitation, streamflow, groundwater levels, and Palmer Drought-Severity Index used by PaDEP for drought monitoring.

Geonarrative: Coastal Resilience Initiative

The Coastal Resilience Initiative geonarrative is a data-driven, interactive narrative that shares information about the USGS-led Coastal Resilience Initiative while allowing viewers to explore past and ongoing work and access coastal science tools. The Initiative's mission is to provide information to protect lives, property, resources, and the economic well-being of coastal communities in the No

California Wildfires

Wildfires pose significant threat in an increasingly arid California landscape, threatening life, property, and air quality, and having long-term impacts on the state's water. Knowing the location and extent of wildfire events that effect California may help scientists and resource managers predict and manage potential impacts burns may have upon water quality, availability and movement.
