The U.S. Geological Survey National Geospatial Technical Operations Center (NGTOC) provides leadership and world-class technical expertise in the acquisition and management of trusted geospatial data, services, and map products for the Nation. NGTOC supports The National Map as part of the National Geospatial Program (NGP).
The National Map is a collaborative effort among the USGS and partners to improve and deliver topographic information for the Nation. The NGTOC creates, maintains and publishes the products and services of The National Map.
The National Geospatial Program has released a series of “how to” videos for people who are working with The National Map data and services. The videos show how to use the services and interfaces to access data and tools.
As one of the cornerstones of the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) National Geospatial Program, The National Map is a collaborative effort among the USGS and other Federal, State, and local partners to improve and deliver topographic information for the Nation. It has many uses ranging from recreation to scientific analysis to emergency response.
