The National Map is the collection of mapping products and services produced by the USGS National Geospatial Program. It includes topographic maps, boundaries, land cover, aerial photographs, and data on transportation and structures such as schools, hospitals, and other public buildings.

The training videos cover the content of the map, how to use the National Map interface, and how to download data from the National Map to use it yourself in other softwares.
