National Geophysical Data Center Interactive Map Services
Entry ID: NGDC_MAPS
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The National Geophysical Data Center interactive map services provide visual
display of one or more data layers, often with links to download the underlying
data. Users can view layers containing different types of data, adding
reference information such as continents, rivers, and political boundaries if
desired. Zoom, pan, identify, search, find, and hyperlink capabilities are also
available. See the toolbar help for hints on using these tools, and the map
help for more about maps.

NGDC will be adding more map services in the future, and enhancing features on
some existing services.

To view a map in a new browser window, choose the map button next to the
service name. For more information on the data included in the map, choose the
info button next to the service name.

Please see http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/maps/interactivemaps.html for a list of
available maps.

Access Constraints
These maps may contain large graphics and may take a long time to load,
especially over a slow connection. They also require current browsers with
javascript enabled. Macintosh users, especially should make sure that they have
at least Netscape 6 or IE 5. PC users should have either Netscape or IE 4 or
higher.
