Graphical Locator Home Page
This graphical locator makes it possible to find location data about places in the northwest quarter of the Earth. Most of the locations in this database are in the United States, but a limited number exist for Canada and Mexico. Users may choose maps by state, click directly on U.S. and hydrologic (HUC) maps, or enter latitude and longitude, township range and section, or a UTM. Data includes latitude, longitude, gradient, elevation, UTM (Universal Time) zone, legal name, state and county, topographic map names of the area and nearby named locations. Custom maps may be created by using coordinates and choosing features to display, such as roads or streams. Zooming brings the view to within two kilometers of the site entered.
