wTraditionally a compilation of brief articles on the progress of major research and data-gathering programs of the USGS, the Yearbook also includes a list of key USGS personnel nationwide, partner organizations from across the nation, and budget information. The on-line version provides all of this information to users around the world as well as a gateway to thousands of pages of data and information that the USGS currently has available on the World Wide Web.

Highlights of the CD-ROM:

Video clips of the 1995 flooding in Madison County, Va., land use changes in the Washington - Baltimore urban corridor and USGS Director Gordon Eaton describing some of the recent changes at the USGS.

The CD-ROM is a "connected" disc which allows the user to readily access information from the CD-ROM and to automatically connect to the World Wide Web for additional updates with the click of a mouse button. This provides the user with the best of both worlds, text, images, and video from the CD-ROM and the latest updates on related information on the Web.

Mac and Windows compatible.
