In the Spring of 2021, the U.S. Geological Survey’s, National Geospatial Program will be releasing a new application called Dynamic Mapping. This application will allow users to make their own customized topographic map using The National Map data as a base, selecting their area of interest, which features to include on the map, and even adding their own geospatial data. Options for a digital and/or print version of the customized topographic maps will be available for a fee. The initial scales available are 1:20,000 for Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands, 1:24,000 for the conterminous United States and Hawaii, and 1:25,000 for Alaska. Additional scales are in development and will be available later in 2021 and 2022.
This presentation will cover the details of the Dynamic Mapping application. It will include the capabilities available in Spring-2021, what is in development for future releases in 2021 and 2022, and a demonstration of the application interface and user experience.
