Improved Search Map for Locating Your Data

We're very excited to debut a dynamic search map on our Data Search and Download.

Static images are now replaced with a web-based map that allows the search to move from statewide to county-level, and then down to 7.5 minute quad–level. At the quad level, clicking on adjacent quads is also possible.

At each level, the available datasets are quickly populated on the page.

Dynamic Coverage Maps

Building on the Data Catalog as well, we've incorporated dynamic coverage maps that provide an immediate idea of whether the dataset covers your desired area.
