The Mission of NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) in Boulder, CO is to provide long-term scientific data stewardship for the Nation's geophysical data, ensuring quality, integrity, and accessibility. A suite of interactive web maps and map services provides data discovery and access to much of the data stewarded at NGDC. These maps are implemented using ArcGIS for Server and the ArcGIS API for JavaScript. Services are accessible using both RESTful and SOAP queries as well as Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard protocols such as WMS, WFS, WCS, and KML. Several of the maps can be toggled between Web Mercator, Arctic, and Antarctic projections. This presentation will cover geospatial products and services for various datasets stewarded at NGDC, including high-resolution bathymetry DEM visualizations, ship tracks for multibeam bathymetric and marine geophysical surveys, National Ocean Service (NOS) hydrographic survey data, marine geological samples, historical tsunami data, historical geomagnetic models, and the international GEBCO Gazetteer of Undersea Feature Names.
