(formerly Mapping) provides scientific information to describe and interpret America's landscape by mapping the terrain, monitoring changes over time, and analyzing how and why these changes have occurred. The knowledge gained through these activities is used to model the processes of change and to predict future changes.
The Eastern Region (ER) Geography is a leader in promoting The National Map by integrating earth and biological science through geography. A Mapping Partnership Office (MPO), co-located in the Virginia Water Resources Discipline Office, has been established to strengthen the USGS’ Geography presence and foster future collaboration. The establishment of this MPO will create new opportunities for partnership on The National Map, as well as other State and USGS integrated science initiatives.
