The lists below can be used to explore some of the data that the USGS offers. Not all data listed below may pertain specifically to Nevada.
- National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII)
- NBII is a broad, collaborative program to provide increased access to data and information on the nation's biological resources. The NBII links diverse, high-quality biological databases, information products, and analytical tools (more ).
- Biomonitoring of Environmental Status and Trends (BEST) Large River Monitoring Network
- BEST Large River Monitoring Network has examined fish health in multiple river basins. This searchable dataset currently contains the following information: Contaminant concentrations, fish health indicators, and reproductive biomarkers.
- Invasive Species Databases
- USGS invasive species research encompasses all significant groups of invasive organisms in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in all regions of the United States. Working collaboratively with partner agencies and organizations, USGS provides the tools, technology, and information that support efforts to prevent, contain, control, and manage invasive species nationwide (more ).
- Wild Horse Identification Management System (WHIMS)
- As part of a cooperative effort between USGS and the BLM, the Wild Horse Identification Management System (WHIMS) was developed to catalogue photographs and information on individual animals within wildhorse herds and then have this information easily retrieved and manipulated (more ).
- Query and order satellite images, aerial photographs, and cartographic products.
- GeoMac—Wildland Fire Support
- The Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination Group or GeoMAC, is an internet-based mapping application designed for fire managers and the public to access online maps of current fire locations and perimeters in the conterminous 48 States and Alaska. (more )
- Center for LIDAR Information Coordination and Knowledge (CLICK)
- The goal of CLICK is to facilitate data access, user coordination and education of lidar remote sensing for scientific needs.
- Death Valley Regional Flow System (DVRFS) map viewer
- A gateway to geospatial information and data pertaining to the DVRFS.
- Lake Tahoe Data Clearinghouse
- The site is designed to ensure that all interested parties -- scientists, engineers, resource managers, developers, and the public -- have quick and easy access to Lake Tahoe data and information (more ).
- Natural Hazards Support System (NHSS)
- NHSS enables users to monitor and analyze natural hazards events as they are occurring anywhere on the Earth in an integrated geospatial view that combines the dynamic natural hazards events with a rich set of reference data including shaded relief, transportation, and hydrography. (more ).
- National Oil and Gas Assessment
- The USGS Central Energy Team provides periodic assessments of the oil and natural gas endowment of the United States.
- Geology of the National Parks
- Take a virtual tour of one of the parks: climb the peaks of the North Cascades, use Lake Mead's history to learn about geologic time, or dig deeper into the geologic story of Death Valley. We even have some special 3D tours (more )
- National Water Information System: Web Interface (NWISweb)
- NWISweb provides access to water-resources data collected at approximately 1.5 million sites in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Online access is available for real-time, surface-water, ground-water, and water-quality data as well as site information.
- National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Data Warehouse
- The NAWQA program began systematically collecting chemical, biological, and physical water quality data from 42 study units (basins) across the nation in 1991. The data warehouse allows users access to most of the data collected through the NAWQA program from one central location.
- Water Use in the United States
- The USGS National Water-Use Information Program is responsible for compiling and disseminating the nation's water-use data. Every five years, data at the state level are compiled into a national water-use data system and are published in a national circular.
