THE NATIONAL MAP PRODUCT GENERATION PROJECT IN MECKLENBURG AND WAKE COUNTIES, NORTH CAROLINA

The North Carolina Geological Survey (NCGS) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) entered into agreement to develop product generation capabilities of The National Map data. This project relates to The National Map (http://nationalmap.usgs.gov) and the State’s NC OneMap (http://www.nconemap.com) projects. The project area focus is Mecklenburg County, and surrounding counties. The project goal is to produce maps via the Internet from The National Map viewer. We envision that these products will be created in a digital form, which could also be plotted out for a hardcopy product. This project will explore the latest web mapping technologies. Project outcomes will benefit The National Map and NC OneMap.

Deliverables will include the establishment of two kiosks (Charlotte and Raleigh), that will allow users access and user-defined product output. Our vision is that the kiosks will enable users to define an area, choose data themes of interest, and produce a product, either in digital, PDF, or hard copy form.

Historically, the NCGS has had jointly funded agreements with the USGS to revise 1:24,000 topographic maps. Current USGS efforts are on developing The National Map that incorporates the more accurate and current data produced at the state and local levels, and making it available to the public. These are similar to some of the characteristics of NC OneMap. Both of these efforts will mainly rely on digital geospatial data. However, there will still be a need for products from this digital geospatial data.
