Global Geographic Information Systems

Project Description
Global Geographic Information Systems (Global GIS) focuses on
making the USGS Global Geographic Information System (GIS)
database readily available to educators and the general public
in the form of a DVD based world atlas. The USGS Global GIS
database contains a wealth of USGS and other public domain data,
including global coverages of elevation, landcover, seismicity,
and resources of minerals and energy at a nominal scale of 1:1
million. The GIS, which will run on the included Environmental
Systems Research Institute's (ESRI) ArcView Data Publisher
software, will be produced both by region on seven CD-ROM?s and
on a single DVD.
