USGS map separate products are copies of the film positives or negatives used in the USGS published map production process and were included in the recently announced new price structure on November 1, 1999.

Map separates are used to prepare your own maps or artwork based on maps. For example, you can adapt the separates to make regional and local planning maps or for many kinds of studies or promotions by using the features you select and then printing them in colors of your choice.

The USGS is offering two pricing options, standard and custom. The standard product is a full set of final combined negatives for each map title. Each set costs $180. Customers may still purchase individual separates as custom orders using the following price structure: The base price for a custom product is $100 per order. Added to this base price is a $59 charge per color separate. A customer may add more than one color group on a separate for an additional charge of $9 each. The handling fee for all products will be $5.

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.
