General Maps


Aerial Photos

  • Microsoft® TerraServer - Aerial photography of nearly the entiere U.S. from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) provides georectified digitized aerial photographs and digitized topographical maps and from SPIN-2 high-resolution satellite images, products of a joint Russian/American venture to market declassified satellite photographs from sophisticated Russian mapping satellites. 

  • HistoricAerials - Aerial photo resource for environmental due diligence.  Aerial photography can be viewed for free from the 1930's to present.


Topo Maps


  • USGS The National Geospatial Program provides leadership for USGS geospatial coordination, production and service activities.
    • 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.
    • US Topo is a new kind of georeferenced map, representing an evolution of USGS paper topographic maps
  • The TopoZone - The TopoZone is the Web's center for topographic map users and outdoor recreation enthusiasts. We've worked with the USGS to create the Web's first interactive topo map of the entire United States. If you're looking for maps that don't leave big blank spaces between the highways, welcome!
  • Maptech - MapServer, lets you view the entire inventory of digitized maps and charts, print them out or Email them.  USGS topo maps, nautical charts, aero maps.  Most states available - entire US to be available by the end of 2000.



Environmental Maps


  • Terra - The flagship in NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS), Terra launched on December 18, 1999, and began collecting science data on February 24, 2000. Also, visit the Visible Earth to browse the complete image archive.

  • TOMS - NASA's Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS). Complete information and imagery for Aerosols, Ozone, Reflectivity, Erythemal UV, and Volcano (SO2).
  • Disaster Maps - From Prevention Web. Searchable by Region, Hazard and Issue/Theme
  • Digital Watershed - From Michigan State University's Institute of Water Research. Provides interactive watershed maps for anywhere in the entire US and is linked to Google Earth.
  • GOME - The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME).

  • Environmental Atlas - Environmental atlas of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This site offers an online environmental map collection, links to other important collections, and information to help you understand environmental quality maps, mapping, and environmental information.  U.S., state and regional maps.
  • EPA's EnviroMapper - A dynamic way to view and query environmental information. EnviroMapper maps several types of environmental information, including drinking water, toxic and air releases, hazardous waste, water discharge permits, and Superfund sites. EnviroMapper also links to text reports, which provide even more information. 
  • Atlas of America's Polluted Waters - Maps showing waters within each state that do not meet state water quality standards. States listed these waters in their most recent submission to EPA, generally, in 1998, as required by section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act. 
  • The Atlas of Health and Climate - Published jointly by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), illustrates some of the most pressing current and emerging challenges.
  • North American Environmental Atlas - The NAFTA-based, Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) works with key mapping agency partners in Canada, Mexico, and the United States to promote understanding of significant continental-scale environmental issues through the North American Environmental Atlas
  • North American Watershed Atlas - From the NAFTA-related, Commission for Environmental Cooperation, an integrated North American (Canada, Mexico, and the United States) dataset for roads, railroads, populated places, political boundaries, hydrology, bathymetry, sea ice and glaciers.
  • EnviroMapper For Watersheds - Application provides users with interactive Geographic Information System (GIS) functionality using Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) spatial data. Allows users to view spatial data at the national, state, county and zip code levels, as well as utilize GIS functionality, such as displaying multiple spatial layers, zooming, panning, identifying features, and querying single points.
  • Natural Hazards Support System (NHSS), available on the USGS website, is a tool for monitoring and analyzing hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, severe weather, floods, wildfires and tsunamis.
  • Watershed Atlas - is a catalog of geo-spatial displays and analyses of information and data important for watershed protection and restoration. You can use the catalog by geography, theme, key word, source/organization, and age of source data (under construction). Or search it using your words. 
  • National Wetlands Inventory - U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) provides digital wetlands data. GIS software is needed to view maps. FWS also provides the Wetlands Interactive Mapper Tool - displays national coverage of spatial themes, including wetlands data, high resolution hydrology and transportation, and US Fish and Wildlife refuges.
