Eastern Mineral and Environmental Resources Science Center
Mineral Resource Online Data Catalog (MRData.usgs.gov)
The purpose of this work is to make the digital spatial data produced by
the Mineral Resources Program effective in solving scientific and technical
problems encountered by people who work within
the Federal government.
- Creating a topically-indexed catalog of published scientific data
- Developing interactive map interfaces that help people understand what data we have to offer as well as how different data sets are connected and related
- Developing specialized web interfaces that help people download the specific data that meet their needs
- Developing GIS web services and application programming interfaces that enable sophisticated technologists to exploit the connections between our work and their own
- Coordinating the composition, documentation, and delivery of all spatial data products generated by Mineral Resources Program research and technical staff.
