Summary
Abstract: The USGS conducts systematic and scientific classification of the public lands and examination of the geological structure; mineral, energy, and water resources; and products of the national domain. This information is provided in many forms such as reports, maps, and data bases that contain descriptions and analyses of the water, energy, and mineral resources, the land surface, the underlying geologic structure, and the dynamic processes of the Earth.

Purpose: Established in 1879, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has Federal responsibility for preparing multipurpose maps and fundamental cartographic data to meet the requirements of users throughout the United States.
