Using image services to deliver geologic maps of the Nation
Track: National Mapping
Authors: Dave Soller, David Soller, Chris Garrity
The AASG-USGS National Geologic Map Database (NGMDB) provides public access to geologic maps, reports, and related geoscience information. One of these features is MapView, a web mapping interface of published geologic maps of the Nation. MapView provides a front-end to the NGMDB's Map Catalog through a Flex interface. Users can view/search seamless image services of selected maps and download high-resolution geoTIFFs and other formats. Full coverage of the United States is expected in 2013.
