    USGS Webinar: Using The National Map services to enable your web and mobile mapping efforts

    Are you a developer, firm, or organization using mobile or web applications to enable your users? The USGS has publicly available geospatial services and data to help you!

    The USGS' National Geospatial Technical Operations Center (NGTOC) will be hosting a 30 minute Webinar on "Using The National Map services to enable your web and mobile mapping efforts" on the 30th of April at 9am Mountain Time.

    This webinar will feature a brief overview of services, data, and products that are publicly available, a quick overview on how SingleTracks.com (http://www.singletracks.com/) a leading private firm is leveraging this public data to benefit their users, and a Question & Answer session with a USGS developer to help you get the most out of the national geospatial services.

    "This is the first webinar from NGTOC to bring developers and users together for some demonstrations and starting some dialog", said Brian Fox, the NGTOC Systems Development Branch Chief. "Using this webinar format, we can simultaneously improve the awareness of USGS geospatial services and develop a better understanding of what users and developers need to make our data and services more available and usable."
