Welcome to the USGS

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), established by an act of Congress in 1879, is the Nation’s largest natural science and civilian mapping agency. The USGS works in cooperation with more than 2,000 organizations across the country to provide reliable, impartial scientific information. This information is used to minimize the loss of life and property from natural disasters, safeguard the Nation’s natural resources, and enhance quality of life through careful monitoring of water, biological, energy, and mineral resources.
