“The mission of the National Geospatial Program is to provide National topographic information to advance science, support government, enlighten citizens, and enable decision making. The NGP provides a foundation of digital geospatial data representing the topography, natural landscape, and manmade environment of the United States. Accessible through The National Map Data Download, customers can incorporate NGP geospatial products and services into their decision making and operational activities.”

Available geospatial data includes a wide variety of products. In addition to better known data like topography and elevation, information is provided on such topics as National Hydrography and the U.S. Board on Geographic Names

Look for special reports in the list of publications, such as the Elevation-derived hydrography acquisition specifications.
