Earth Science - TNM as Basemap Option

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Core Science Systems is working to enhance and expand information sharing and preservation by developing ScienceBase, a collaborative scientific data and information management platform used directly by scientists and data practitioners. Using a DOJO Javascript API for a map viewing UI to the catalog search results, a ScienceBase user can toggle a basemap button from World Map Services using other sources, or to The National Map as basemap option. After going to the URL above, click on the "ArcGIS" basemap button, and notice "National Map" as the 2nd option. Contacts: Sky Bristol ( Tim Kern ( Natalie Latysh (
