This collection of photographs was taken by Dale Turner of the Nature Conservancy, with support from Eloise Kendy and ....
This is a catalog of datasets available for processing with the Geo Data Portal.
Version 3.0 of the NFHP Data System consists of data access and visualization tools and underlying data management tools and functions. The NFHP National Assessment Results Viewer allows users to visualize the primary results reported in Through a Fish's Eye: The Status of Fish Habitats in the United States 2010 at various spatial scales. It depicts the condition of stream and coastal habitats across the country on a variety of base maps and provides one-click access to more detailed information at finer scales. The NFHP Data Theme Viewer provides a summarized look at available data by theme. Datasets are displayed to show data distribution and data density nationally, compared to available data linked to the NFHP...
This is a collection of public data records intended for distribution in the USGS Science Data Catalog (data.usgs.gov).
The U.S. Geological Survey Denver Library maintains a collection of more than 400,000 photographs taken during geologic studies of the United States and its territories from 1868 to the present. These images provide a visual history of the discovery, development, and sciences of the United States and its Geological Survey. Some photographs have been used in USGS publications, but most have never been published. Currently, this website represents less than 10 percent of the Library's images with approximately 38,000 photographs on-line. Visit http://library.usgs.gov/photo/#/.
This collection is comprised of digital, slide and print photographs taken during minerals related field projects from 1970-2015. There are approximately 35,800 photos and slides that need to be culled, documented and archived. 81% of the photos are in digital format and most need to be manually matched with their locations from geologists’ field notes, although a small percentage have locations and descriptions that could easily be archived. The remaining 19% are slide and print format that need the same attention but are in fair to good condition for scanning purposes. There are 50 videos that are also part of this collection. These photos document field sites, geologic features, landscapes and landforms from...
The U.S. Congress authorized a library for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in 1879. The library was formally established in 1882 with the naming of the first librarian and began with a staff of three and a collection of 1,400 books. Today, the USGS Libraries Program is one of the world's largest Earth and natural science repositories and a resource of national significance used by researchers and the public worldwide.
Metadata collection for the National Spatial Data Infrastructure maintained by the Water Mission Area in USGS
A system of observational phenological data for nearly 600 plants and animals., submitted by USGS and many other agencies and organizations. USGS is the managing agency for the NPN.
The Aquatic Gap Program is an element of the overall USGS Gap Analysis Program, focusing on species found in coastal and inland waters. The goal of the National Aquatic GAP is to evaluate aquatic biological diversity and aquatic habitats using spatial analysis and habitat suitability models to identify gaps in species distribution and work toward more effective conservation prioritization. The Aquatic GAP analysis process, while still in progress in many regions of the United States, has already produced a large amount of modeled fish, crayfish and mussel distribution data for certain regions.
The citations and abstracts in this collection from Cambridge Scientific Abstracts/ProQuest provide summary metadata describing articles published in a wide range of peer-reviewed scientific journals, largely between 1990-2011. The topical scope of this collection includes terrestrial and aquatic ecology and biology; wildlife and zoonotic diseases; renewable energy; genetic biodiversity; species of conservation concern; pollinator issues; and invasive species.
Library collection of 34 out-of-print Biennial Reports of the Commissioners of the State Geological and Natural History Survey to the Governor and State Legislature of Connecticut. These historic reports chronicle the legacy and evolution of the State Geological and Natural History Survey of Connecticut from its inception in 1903 until it became an entity of the state environmental agency in 1971. This collection include 682 pages of text, 18 figures, 9 plates, and 2 map sheets. These reports are valuable to science historians, academic scholars, geoscience professionals, and public policy experts. A related Connecticut Survey Library collection contains associated historic correspondence. Although most of the...
The Gap Analysis Program (GAP) is an element of the U.S. Geological Survey. GAP helps to implement the Department of the Interior’s goals of inventory, monitoring, research, and information transfer. GAP has three primary goals: Identify conservation gaps that help keep common species common; Provide conservation information to the public so that informed resource management decisions can be made; and Facilitate the application of GAP data and analysis to specific resource management activities. To implement these goals, GAP carries out the following objectives: Map the land cover of the United States Map predicted distributions of vertebrate species for the U.S. Map the location, ownership and stewardship...
Layered GeoPDF 7.5 Minute Quadrangle Map. Layers of geospatial data include orthoimagery, roads, grids, geographic names, elevation contours, hydrography, and other selected map features. This map depicts geographic features on the surface of the earth. One intended purpose is to support emergency response at all levels of government. The geospatial data in this map are from selected National Map data holdings and other government sources.
The National Geospatial Program collection of resources provide service interfaces to the basemap services from The National Map and the services provided by ScienceBase for NGP Staged Products (US Topo, etc.).
Earthquake Hazards Program Data Sources includes the ANSS
Collection of metadata records for marquee datasets/data systems of the Core Science Analytics and Synthesis Program.
Interactive maps and downloadable data for regional and global Geology, Geochemistry, Geophysics, and Mineral Resources.
