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 »
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 »
In 2006, the USGS Eastern Geographic Science Center began a joint project to develop a custom application to provide enhanced public access to USGS’s National Land Cover Database (NLCD). The resulting Land Cover Analysis Tool (LCAT) allows users to quickly locate, display, and download data from the National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD) , including the recently developed NLCD Change Product, which displays changes in land ...more »
The National Fish Habitat Action Plan map and data web tool was developed to enable users to see multiple views depicting the condition of stream and coastal habitats across the country that was recently released in the report "Through a Fish's Eye: The Status of Fish Habitat In The United States 2010 Report". The map viewer also provides access to detailed information at finer scales, as well as the option to download ...more »
This map uses The National Map services from the USGS for the base map, and a service with the 2001 National Land Cover Dataset. The National Map base map services are published by The National Map, while the NLCD service was published by ESRI using USGS data.
http://bit.ly/kHLJvX This map uses The National Map base map from the USGS to shows the Soil Survey Geographic (SSURGO) by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service. It also shows data that was developed by the National Cooperative Soil Survey and supersedes the State Soil Geographic (STATSGO) dataset published in 1994. SSURGO digitizing duplicates the original soil survey maps. ...more »
In The National Map Viewer, under "Other Featured Data" - viewer.nationalmap.gov/beta (or live viewer), Along with TNM base data overlays, there are several featured data mashups from other Science, Hazards, and Land Management programs. Challenge: 1. Give making a mashup with one of these services a try 2. Copy your link or Print PDF in the upper right of the viewer 3. Submit your idea as part of the mashathon: USGS ...more »
