Delineating Watershed Boundaries Using The National Map

The National Elevation Dataset, the elevation layer of The National Map, is the framework for a multi-layered hydrologic database called the Elevation Derivatives for National Applications (EDNA). Using valuable flow direction characteristics within the EDNA, an elevation-derived watershed tool is available to delineate and download watershed boundaries by selecting a point anywhere within the conterminous United States. ...more »

View the USGS Vegetation Characterization Program's data in TNM

The USGS Vegetation Characterization Program has begun web enabling all their National Parks Vegetation data sets via the OGC WMS standard. A new link "View in TNM" will be added to each parks web page. When invoked the TNM Viewer will open and zoom to the vegetation web mapping service. This will provide the researcher with an idea of what each data set has to offer without having to first download the data and bring ...more »

National Parks Lichens Map Viewer using TNM Base Maps

The Biological Informatics Program has rewritten the National Parks Lichens Map Viewer to use base map layers from TNM. The new viewer is written using the Google API and in addition to using TNM base maps it will also bring in the GAP land cover dataset. Future plans are to add the USGS Vegetation Characterization Program's data to the viewer. These mashups will provide the research scientist a very comprehensive look ...more »

TNM Services in ArcMap Template

In 2010, the USGS Community for Data Integration had a goal to incorporate new National Map base data layer services in existing mapping applications and document case studies as a demonstration of using these corporate data assets. The attached ArcMap MXD Templates were created as palettes to drag and drop services from this MXD into scientist MXDs to make mashup within ArcMap. For static and stable services, this model ...more »
