Oct 9, - Seen from Earth, the moon glows a pure off-white, its craters sometimes visible in light gray shadow. Maps made by the US Geological Survey offer a vastly different visual depiction of the Earth’s moon, using the full color spectrum to denote differences in topography and geology.

    Maps are available for the three upper physiographic levels from Fenneman (). They are reproduced in the Geomorphic Description System (Schoeneberger and Wysocki, ). Maps of State physiographic areas are generally available through State Geological Survey offices or . image All images latest This Just In Flickr Commons Occupy Wall Street Flickr Cover Art USGS Maps.

The U.S. Geological Survey manages the National Geologic Map Database (NGMDB). See also: geologic column, isopach map, and tectonic map. The U.S. Geological Survey is developing a new capability, called Land Change Monitoring, Assessment, and Projection (LCMAP), to innovate the understanding of land change. This capability is the Earth Resources Observation and Science Center's foundation for an integrated U.S. Geological Survey-wide land change science framework.

Geoscience is an interdisciplinary and “socially-minded” area of science. Many aspects of geoscience can impact the general public.

Effective written communication is crucial in geoscience because the science needs to be explained to both the public and other scientists.

A map showing the many different pieces of Earth’s crust that comprise the nation’s geologic basement is now available from the U.S. Geological Survey. This is the first map to portray these pieces, from the most ancient to recent, by the events that influenced their composition, starting with their origin.

The U.S. Geological Survey has made large strides in providing remote access to web-enabled maps through their dynamic digital map program (Condit,a, b, ).

A Dynamic Digital Map (DDM) is a stand-alone presentation manager program that displays downloads of maps, images, movies, data, and supporting text, such as map explanations.

Subsequently, geologic maps were prepared by early state geological surveys and by the ical Survey. Today, the availability of aerial photography and remote sensing from satellite imagery, plus the computer capability for storage, recovery, and evaluation.

Meeting Challenges with Geologic Maps presents 16 examples that show how geologic maps are helping to delineate fragile habitat and ecosystems, protect against natural hazards (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides and sinkholes), and find needed resources (groundwater, metals. The standard series of colors for systems of sedimentary rocks is shown on the maps in the Survey's geologic folios but is subject to modifications for use on maps in other Survey reports.

Each system is represented by a different color, and if there are two or more formations in one system they are generally distinguished by using different.
