The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Geologic Sections dataset consists of site-specific, large-scale geologic cross-sections (composite sheets). These sections were acquired from VDOT in order to save them from disposal. There are 5,500 geological profiles created for highway construction projects containing extensive core, auger and split-spoon logs at scales of 1:50 and 1:100 providing a unique record of subsurface geological and geotechnical data along roadways throughout Virginia. The thousands of feet of vertical subsurface data represents millions of dollars of investment in data acquisition by VDOT. The sections are useful as indicators of subsurface geology in large parts of Virginia. ...

Current national data resources for GAP include three primary data sets – land cover, protected areas, and species. Land Cover: The GAP/LANDFIRE National Terrestrial Ecosystems data, based on the NatureServe Ecological Systems Classification, are the foundation of the most detailed, consistent map of vegetation available for the United States. These data facilitate the planning and management for biological diversity on a regional and national scale. Learn more about GAP land cover data here: https://www.usgs.gov/core-science-systems/science-analytics-and-synthesis/gap/science/land-cover Protected Areas: The Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US) is a national geodatabase, created by USGS GAP,...

High-latitude regions are experiencing rapid and extensive changes in ecosystem composition and function as the result of increases in average air temperature. Increasing air temperatures have led to widespread thawing and degradation of permafrost, which in turn has affected ecosystems, socioeconomics, and the carbon cycle of high latitudes. Research shows that the distribution of permafrost is heterogeneous in nature and that permafrost responds to a wide range of ecological factors. Here we overcome complex interactions between surface and subsurface conditions to map near-surface permafrost using decision-tree models, field observations, remotely sensed and derived data, and climatic indices. The resultant dataset...

Up to 12 different prey fish species were sampled with a 12-m bottom trawl during April, July, and September along two Lake Huron transects (Thunder Bay, Hammond Bay). At each transect in each month, two replicate 10-min tows were conducted at each of three depths (18, 46, 82 m) during the day and night. Once the fish were onboard in a given tow, they were sorted to species, weighed (in aggregate), and up to 50 individuals per species were measured to the nearest total length.

NOTE: A more current version of the Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US) is available: PAD-US 2.1 https://www.sciencebase.gov/catalog/item/5f186a2082cef313ed843257 The USGS Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US) is the nation's inventory of protected areas, including public land and voluntarily provided private protected areas, identified as an A-16 National Geospatial Data Asset in the Cadastre Theme (https://communities.geoplatform.gov/ngda-cadastre/). The PAD-US is an ongoing project with several published versions of a spatial database including areas dedicated to the preservation of biological diversity, and other natural (including extraction), recreational, or cultural...

This collection (known internally to Maryland Geological Survey as Component 4) consists of 375 22-inch by 34-inch photo-mosaic index maps dating from 1936-1980. These index maps depict flight lines and frame numbers for two components of the MGS Aerial Photograph Collection: 1) Component 1: County-Based Aerial Photographs (https://www.sciencebase.gov/catalog/item/4f4e4a94e4b07f02db658dba); and 2) Component 2: MD Barrier Island Aerial Photographs (Enlargements) (https://www.sciencebase.gov/catalog/item/4f4e4aafe4b07f02db66cf18). These index maps serve as a finding aid for these two components. All of the index maps have been scanned (most to JPG, PDF, and TIF format). Digital imagery (PDF) for the majority...

The Gap Analysis Program's (GAP) Species Viewer allows users to explore, download, and create maps of vertebrate species ranges and models developed by GAP. The Viewer displays data on vertebrate species ranges and distribution models for the continental U.S. as well as Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands. More specifically, species distribution models based on deductive modeling of habitat associations are displayed across entire species ranges for over 2000 species. The goal is to build species range maps and distribution models with the best available data for assessing conservation status, conservation planning, and research (e.g., climate change impacts). Ranges are represented by 12-digit...

Gap Analysis Project (GAP) habitat maps are predictions of the spatial distribution of suitable environmental and land cover conditions within the United States for individual species. Mapped areas represent places where the environment is suitable for the species to occur (i.e. suitable to support one or more life history requirements for breeding, resting, or foraging), while areas not included in the map are those predicted to be unsuitable for the species. While the actual distributions of many species are likely to be habitat limited, suitable habitat will not always be occupied because of population dynamics and species interactions. Furthermore, these maps correspond to midscale characterizations of landscapes,...

Dataset consists of individual rasters, each describing a separate geochemical or geophysical attribute. See "Child Items" to browse and select desired rasters, download associated service definition file, and unzip to access rasters formatted as geoTiffs.

rbison is an R package or wrapper for interacting with the USGS BISON search API (https://bison.usgs.gov/#opensearch). rbison allows users to pull species occurrence data from datasets available from the USGS BISON application, inspect species occurance summaries, and then map species occurance within the US, within the contiguous 48 states, and/or at county or state level. The U.S. Geological Survey's BISON (Biodiversity Information Serving Our Nation - https://bison.usgs.gov) application is a product of the USGS Science, Analytics and Synthesis Program. BISON is an information system that allows users to access, explore, and download species occurrence data (predominantly specimen-based e.g. from digitized museum...
