- The Geography Network is a global network of geographic information users
and providers. It provides the infrastructure needed to facilitate the
sharing of geographic information between data providers, service
providers, and users around the world. The Internet is used to deliver
geographic content to the user's browser and desktop. Through the
Geography Network, you can access many types of geographic content

- Index & Inventory of USGS Maps Using Microsoft Access.(Colorado School of Mines) Downloadable
- This index contains the names of all the topographic maps
distributed by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) in the following
scales: 1:24,000, 1:25,000, 1:50,000, 1:100,000, 1:250,000. The database
was designed to help libraries keep an inventory of their holdings of USGS
maps. It assumes that most libraries keep their 1:24,000 (7.5') topos
segregated by state. Libraries differ on how they separate the other
maps. Therefore, the database makes it possible to keep track of maps,
such as the 1:100,000 or 1:250,000, by scale, by state, or both.
