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 »

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 »

Using The National Map Lidar Elevation Data to Study Volcanoes

Light detection and ranging (lidar) point cloud data were used to generate digital elevation models (DEMs) of Mount St. Helens. The high resolution and increased vertical accuracy lidar DEMs are incorporated into the National Elevation Dataset, the elevation layer of The National Map, and are important for studying debris flows surrounding the volcano. The 3D animation of the dome was developed by the U.S. Geological ...more »

Geologic Map of North America with The National Map base map

http://bit.ly/m97DmX This multi-scale geologic map service is a partial representation of the digital data for the Geologic Map of North America. Geologic units and faults, clipped to the terrestrial extent of North America, are represented here. The major divisions of geologic time (stratigraphic age) are represented with the RGB equivalent of the CMYK color specifications presented in the FGDC Digital Cartographic ...more »

TNM OpenLayers Viewer Framework

The USGS Center for Integrated Data Analytics - cida.usgs.gov - created this prototype in Summer 2010 for The National Map Viewer Framework in OpenLayers. It calls WMS or Tiled services, in similar style to TNM. To use, extract the attached zip, and double-click index.html. This is a seeder starter OpenLayers prototype to anyone else who wants to download the code and modify. Maybe could go on "github". Recommended ...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 »

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 »
