Presentation Transcript

  1. Enhancing the “Topo Quad” Topographic Maps made from The National Map Michael Cooley Stafford Binder June 2006, DMT

  2. Background of the “Topo Quad” • History of the Topographic Map • 56K Maps Published using Analog Production Methods • Lack of Funding to Maintain and Revise Maps • The National Map – • Building and Maintaining a Seamless, Integrated Dataset Through Partnerships using State and Local Data • Publishing Maps Using The National Map • Building The National Map • http://nationalmap.gov/

  3. The National Map’s Viewer

  4. Background of the “Topo Quad” • Building Geospatial One-Stop • www.geodata.gov • Providing a Single Portal to Bring Multiple Datasets Together from Other Agencies • Create Enhanced or Custom Graphics

  5. Geospatial One-Stop’s Viewer

  6. The Enhanced “Topo Quad” • Commissioning the Products and Services Team • Guidance from the Products and Services Team • Web-based, Completely Automated, Topographic Mapping from The National Map’s Geospatial Data • Enhance the “Topo Quad” • Improved User Accessibility • Improved Feature Currency • Improved Productivity • Improved Utility

  7. The Enhanced “Topo Quad” • USGS’s Commitments to Enhancing the “Topo Quad” • Commitment to Geospatial One-Stop • Data Discovery • Commitment to The National Map • Base Cartographic Data Improved by Partners • Commitment to Enhancing the “Topo Quad” • Commitment to Customer Satisfaction

  8. The Enhanced “Topo Quad” • The National Map’s Graphics Concepts • Rapid-Response Map Production • 1:24K-Scale using the traditional 7.5’ tile • Currency of Map Content • Partnerships and Partners’ Data • Web Accessible Maps • Downloadable Digital Copies • Multiple Formats • Paper Copies Though Business Partners • Full-size Print-On-Demand Replacing Lithographic Printing • Enhancing the Future of the “Topo Quads”

  9. Implementing the Program • Delaware (DataMIL - http://datamil.delaware.gov/ ) • First Area to be Implemented • Data-Rich Area • Pre-Made Maps • Available through The National Map • Available as PDF or Plotted Maps

  10. The Enhanced “Topo Quad” • The New Map Design • Differences / Similarities Between the New Maps and the Standard Topographic Map • Similarities • Standardized Portrayal from Quad to Quad • Transportation & Hydrography Features • Contours • Accuracy • GNIS Names • Differences • Vegetation • Structures • Urban Tint • Names • Automated Name Placement • Contours • Automated from 1/3-ArcSecond ( Approx. 10-Meter) or Better National Elevation Dataset • Improved Currency of Content

  11. Dover, DE Graphic from TNM Dover, De Published Map (DRG) Contours New Roads Veg Tint Urban Tint GNIS Buildings GNIS Names DLG-3 Buildings BetterNames New Roads Name Placement

  12. The Enhanced “Topo Quad” • The National Map’s Graphic Content • Based on Internet Functionality • The National Map • Geospatial One-Stop • Based on Available and Suitable Data • Partners’ and USGS’s Data • Based on Technological Capabilities • Based on a Draft Minimum Content Specification • Based on Evolving Enhancements • Based on USGS’s Organizational Streamlining

  13. The Enhanced “Topo Quad” • Forthcoming Improvements • Expanded Geographic Coverage of Suitable Data in The National Map • Additional Data Themes • Examples - Imagery, Structures, Landcover for Urban Tint and Vegetation • Additional Map Scales • Intermediate Map Scales, or Larger-Scale Urban Maps • Text Placement • Cartographic Presentation • Customization • Maps Over a User-Specified Center Point • Maps filling a User-Defined Area of Interest • User Specified Content

  14. The Enhanced “Topo Quad” • USGS Invites “Topo Quad” Users’ Help • Pilot these Concepts in Delaware • A Few Quadrangles • Partners’ Suitable Data • Print on Demand • Public Review • Improving the Product and the Process

  15. Anticipated Schedule • Delaware Implementation – Fall 2006 • Texas Implementation – 2007 • Other States – Depending Upon Data • Statewide Coverage • Suitable Data from States • Suitable Data from USGS • Suitable Data from Other Agencies

  16. The Enhanced “Topo Quad” • USGS’ Commitment to Enhancing the “Topo Quad” • Commitment to Geospatial One-Stop • Data Discovery • Commitment to The National Map • Base Cartographic Data Improved by Partners’ • Commitment to Enhancing the “Topo Quad” • Commitment to Customer Satisfaction
