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 »

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 »

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 »

TNM LiDAR Elevation Data Employed in Carolina Bay Survey

http://www.cintos.org/Survey/Maps Aerial photographs of Carolina bays taken in the 1930’s sparked research into their geomorphology, but revealed only part of their unique planforms. Digital Elevation Maps, created in Global Mapper using LiDAR-derived data from the USGS’s National Map Server, accentuate the visual presentation of these shallow basins. To support a geospatial survey, the LiDAR maps were exported as KML-JPEG ...more »
