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.

 PACIFIC COAST

  • New application U.S. Pacific West Coast Region
    - This internet mapping site includes an index to 36 GLORIA sidescan sonar mosaics collected and processed by the USGS in 1984.  In addition to the broad overview data, multibeam backscatter images for several smaller, coastal mapping surveys for the Gulf of Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, San Francisco Bay, Channel Islands, Los Angeles Margin, San Diego Margin and Puget Sound Region are also available for viewing.

 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.

 Lake Mead, Nevada-Arizona

  • Sediment Studies in Lake Mead - selected data layers collected during detailed geophysical mapping of the floor of Lake Mead from 1999-2001. Major focus of the program was to study the geology of the lake floor, measuring sediment accumulation and the studying the distribution of sediment associated pollutants. Data are released in USGS Open-File Report 03-320. These datasets and derived products are intended to serve as base maps for other geological and geochemical studies of the lake.

 Bear Lake, Utah-Idaho

  •  Geophysical Surveys of Bear Lake - This Internet Map Server (IMS) site contains various data layers collected during geophysical surveys of the lake during September 2002. Data include a complete sidescan sonar mosaic of the lake, a detailed bathymetric image, bathymetry contours, seismic navigation tracklines with links to reduced seismic images, and the location of grab samples with links to grab sample images.
