This map layer contains the shallowest principal aquifers of the conterminous United States, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, portrayed as polygons. The map layer was developed as part of the effort to produce the maps published at 1:2,500,000 in the printed series "Ground Water Atlas of the United States". The published maps contain base and cultural features not included in these data. This is a replacement for the July 1998 map layer called Principal Aquifers of the 48 Conterminous United States.

The Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GPLCC, http://www.greatplainslcc.org/) is a partnership that provides applied science and decision support tools to assist natural resource managers conserve plants, fish and wildlife in the mid- and short-grass prairie of the southern Great Plains. It is part of a national network of public-private partnerships — known as Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs, http://www.fws.gov/science/shc/lcc.html) — that work collaboratively across jurisdictions and political boundaries to leverage resources and share science capacity. The Great Plains LCC identifies science priorities for the region and helps foster science that addresses these priorities to support wildlife...

This map layer portrays the estimated use of water in counties in the United States, in the year 2005. The map layer was extracted from the U.S. Geological Survey Water Resources of the United States water use database, which is a long term data set that documents information on water use since 1950. This map layer contains information about water use for public supply, industrial, irrigation, mining, livestock, and thermoelectric power, by county throughout the United States.

These data were compiled to accompany flow modeling work on Kanab Creek near the mouth (USGS gage 09403850). The data include topographic data collected by a remote sensing detection light detection and ranging (LIDAR) system and surveying total station in June 2017, high water marks from six floods from 2011 to 2013, and control points and gage structures. Topographic data include ground topography collected by LIDAR and channel bathymetry collected by total station survey of a 600 meter reach of Kanab Creek, ending at the confluence with the Colorado River in Grand Canyon, Arizona. High water mark data include sets from six floods collected by USGS personnel using total station surveys.

This map layer shows polygons of average annual precipitation in thecontiguous United States, for the climatological period 2005-2009.Parameter-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model (PRISM)derived raster data is the underlying data set from which the polygonsand vectors were created. PRISM is an analytical model that uses pointdata and a digital elevation model (DEM) to generate gridded estimatesof annual, monthly and event-based climatic parameters.

This data set is a subset of the Spatial Hazard Events and Losses Databasefor the United States (SHELDUS Version 7.0) that was compiled by theUniversity of South Carolina. It portrays county-level hazard data forthe United States, for the years 2001 to 2009. Included is informationfor 17 different natural hazard event types, as well as the total cost ofdamage due to natural hazards. The event types included are avalanches,coastal events, drought, earthquakes, flooding, fog, hail, heat,hurricanes/tropical storms, landslides, lightning,severe storms/thunderstorms, tornadoes, tsunamis/seiches, wildfires,wind, and winter weather.For each event type, information is reported on property losses,crop losses, injuries, and...

This dataset has many data layers. They each represent the potential habitat for an individual species in Florida. These species habitats modeled in this dataset belong to species that have been designated to have conservation need. Potential habitat includes areas that have been occupied by the species and areas where occupancy is unknown based on available occurrence records. In 1994, researchers in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission completed a project, entitled Closing The Gaps in Florida's Wildlife Habitat Conservation System (Cox et al 1994), assessing the security of rare and imperiled species on existing conservation lands in Florida. These biologists used a variety of species occurrence...

The electrical conductivity of the earth is used to help infer lithological and pore fluid properties. Various geophysical methods can provide estimates of the distribution of below ground electrical conductivity, with each method having certain limitations. This data release presents raw and processed results from land-based and water-based frequency domain electromagnetic induction (EMI) data collected from August 23, 2017 to August 28, 2017. The raw data consist of .csv files from the Geophex GEM-2 unit. Data were primarily collected by walking with the instrument at approximately 1 m off the ground in horizontal coplanar (ski flat) mode. A survey along a section of the Little Wind River in a kayak (with about...

The electrical conductivity of the earth is used to help infer lithological and pore fluid properties. Various geophysical methods can provide estimates of the distribution of below ground electrical conductivity, with each method having certain limitations. This data release presents raw and processed results from 9 electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) transects collected from August 24, 2017 to August 28, 2017. The raw data include instrument files from the AGI SuperSting R8 unit (.stg and .crs fils) as well as some electrode positions from those lines recorded with a handheld GPS to help georeferenced the lines. Processed data include data that has been combined (where appropriate), filtered, and converted...

A rich legacy of geochemical data produced since the early 1960s covers the great expanse of Alaska; careful treatment of such data may provide significant and revealing geochemical maps that may be used for landscape geochemistry, mineral resource exploration, and geoenvironmental investigations over large areas. To maximize the spatial density and extent of data coverage for statewide mapping of element distributions, we compiled and integrated analyses of more than 175,000 sediment and soil samples from three major, separate sources: the U.S. Geological Survey, the National Uranium Resource Evaluation program, and the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys geochemical databases. Various types of...

7 aerial photographs were taken along the Little Missouri River in 1949. All images were geo-referenced to the 1995 digital orthophoto quarter quadrangles as described by Miller and Friedman (2009). Both the flood plain and active channel of the river were delineated on the 1995 digital orthophoto quadrangles and overlaid on rectified photos. ArcGIS was used to draw the polygons that delineate the flood plain and active channel; the delineation was saved as a SHP file. The separate images (geoTIFFs) can be viewed as a composite along with that year's channel delineation (SHP file) using a geographic information system (GIS) application.
