See at a glance where selected USGS mapping products are available. A new USGS World Wide Web (WWW) site now provides online maps showing the available geographic coverage for selected digital and aerial photography products. Check the new site by going to "Status Graphics: Availability of USGS Geospatial Data and Aerial Photography Products" http://mapping.usgs.gov/www/products/status.html.

Availability status for digital elevation models, digital line graphs, digital raster graphics, digital orthophoto quadrangles, and aerial photographs can be viewed directly. For some of the products, high-quality page- sized status graphics can be downloaded and saved for later viewing and printing.

Each status graphic page shows a national or single-state view, depending on the product. This WWW site also links customers directly to pages where products can be purchased or downloaded, as well as to search tools, such as the Global Land Information System, that provide access to map and image product inventories.

For information on other mapping products and services visit http://mapping.usgs.gov.

The USGS serves the nation by providing reliable scientific information to describe and understand the Earth; minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters; manage water, biological, energy, and mineral resources; and enhance and protect our quality of life.
