USGS Geoscience Data Catalog
A catalog of earth science data produced by the U.S. Geological Survey
Here you'll find documentation with links to the data files. To use the data, you'll need scientific software such as a geographic information system (GIS). There are [an error occurred while processing this directive] records here.
