Description:
Abstract:
As part of the USGS California State Mapping website, this Google Maps KMZ file shows the location and extent of the project's publication map sheets. The map will be updated as needed.
Purpose:
The California Seafloor Mapping Program is a cooperative partnership between state, federal agencies, universities, and industry to create a comprehensive coastal/marine geologic and habitat base map series for all of California's state waters. The U.S. Geological Survey Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center maintains the California Seafloor Mapping Program website with this page dedicated to showing the extent of mapping and ground-truth progress.
