Web Mapping Applications
The Web Mapping Application is an Adobe Flash application built from a modified version of the ESRI Sample Flex Viewer. Your browser will need the Flash plug-in, available from Adobe. The site was developed for Flash version 9 and later.
  U.S. ATLANTIC COAST
  • New publication U.S. Atlantic East Coast Region
  • - This Web Mapping Application site includes data released for the U.S. Atlantic Coast region. Data sets from various U.S. Geological Survey, Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP), Atlantic Coast seafloor mapping surveys have been integrated into the web mapping application. The map includes data layer such as backscatter and sidescan sonar mosaics, bottom photo locations, sediment samples, ship navigation, geologic interpretations etc.

  GULF OF MAINE
  • New publication USGS Massachusetts Seafloor Mapping Cooperative Web Mapping Application - This mapping site contains published data layers and information from various research initiatives conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey, Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP) in cooperation with the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The overall project goal is to map the geologic framework of the region inside the 3-mile limit of Massachusetts state waters. The map server highlights include links to seafloor bottom photographs and the attributes of sediment samples acquired from various field activities surrounding the area.

  SOUTH ATLANTIC
  • Long Bay, South Carolina - This internet mapping site contains data acquired by the USGS, in partnership with the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium (SCSGC), along the northern coastal area of South Carolina in Long Bay from Little River Inlet to Winyah Bay. The objectives of the USGS/SCSGC cooperative program were: 1) to provide a regional synthesis of the shallow geologic framework underlying the shoreface and inner continental shelf, and to define its role in coastal evolution and modern beach behavior; 2) to identify and model the physical processes affecting coastal ocean circulation and sediment transport, and to define their role in shaping the modern shoreline; and 3) to identify sediment sources and transport pathways in order to develop a regional sediment budget.

    The data presented here were acquired by the USGS during field surveys from 1999-2003 and include side-scan sonar, multibeam bathymetry and grab samples. Interpretive data layers, such as modern sediment thickness, seafloor environments and geology and grain size distribution, that were created in support of the research objectives are also included. The geospatial data presented here accompany USGS Open-File Reports OFR 2004-1013 and OFR 2005-1345, describing the stratigraphic framework and modern sediment distribution within Long Bay.

 NATIONAL MAPS
  • New application National Assessment of Shoreline Change Web Mapping Application
  • - A national perspective for the National Assessment of Shoreline Change Project. This Internet Map Server site includes individual data layers compiled in support of the U.S. Geological Survey's National Assessment of Shoreline Change Program. Data layers include short- and long-term shoreline change evaluations, and historical and modern shorelines.

  • New application Sea Floor Stress and Sediment Mobility Database
    - This Web Mapping Application site contains estimates of wave-current bottom stress and sediment mobility for the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf Coast continental shelf regions. This USGS database provides information to address issues in coastal and offshore areas where the degree and/or frequency of sediment mobility are important, such as characterization of sea floor ecosystems and evaluation of areas prior to development.
    (USGS Open File Report 2012-1137).

Internet Map Server sites
The Internet Map Server sites are html and javascript applications built using a modified version of the ESRI IMS Viewer. You will need to enable Active Scripting for your browser for the map viewer to work properly.

Notice for users of IMS services:

The support for the USGS CMGP ArcIMS Services will end sometime in 2014. If you’re currently using the ArcIMS services, please switch to the ArcServer services (to the left under "Web Mapping Applications") before 2014. Thank you.

  U.S. ATLANTIC COAST
  • U.S. Atlantic East Coast
  • - This interactive mapping site includes an index to 21 GLORIA sidescan sonar mosaics collected and processed by the USGS in 1987. Additional data layers contain coastal vulnerability index to future sea-level rise, bottom photographs, surficial samples and sedimentary environment for the entire east coast.

  GULF OF MAINE
  • Regional Overview - The USGS Gulf of Maine Internet Map Server (IMS) provides an overview of USGS research activities and GIS data compiled from various sources for the Gulf of Maine. Data layers include surficial samples and bathymetry contours.

  • Cape Cod and Massachusetts Bay - This mapping site combines data from a number of individual publications that include high-resolution mapping of the seafloor off of Massachusetts, coastal vulnerability of National Seashore Park, and bedrock cores acquired from recent drilling in western Cape Cod. The mapserver highlights include wellsite information that provides links to the bedrock photograph locations and attribute of cores collected from recent drilling in western Cape Cod, Massachusetts and location and links to seafloor bottom photographs acquired from various field activities surrounding the area. Additional data layers include a geologic interpretation of Cape Cod and the Islands, Town boundaries, village names and roads.

  MID-ATLANTIC
  • New York Bight Inner-Continental Shelf - The USGS in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) undertook reconnaissance mapping of the continental shelf seaward of the New York - New Jersey Metropolitan Area that includes the New York Bight and southern Long Island Coast. The goal of the reconnaissance mapping was to provide a regional synthesis of the sea-floor geology in the New York Bight area, including: (a) a description of sea-floor morphology; (b) a map of sea-floor sedimentary lithotypes; (c) the geometry and structure of the Cretaceous strata and Quaternary deposits; and (d) the geologic history of the region. This map site includes data compiled from USGS Open-File Report 02-152. Data includes surficial samples, sidescan sonar mosaic of the NY Bight area, geologic and seismic interpretations, and ship navigation with links to browse versions of the seismic records.

  • Long Island Sound Estuary - This Internet Map Server site includes data compiled from various digital USGS GIS data publications. Data includes high-resolution sidescan sonar mosaics, multibeam bathymetric data, derived bathymetry contours, core information, links to seismic data profiles and various interpretive GIS data layers.
