Abstract

The National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program is publishing a strategic plan titled “Renewing the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program as the Nation’s Authoritative Source for Modern Geologic Knowledge.” The plan provides a vision, mission, and goals for the program for the years 2020–30:

  • Vision: create an integrated, three-dimensional, digital geologic map of the United States.
  • Mission: characterize, interpret, and disseminate a national geologic framework model of the Earth through geologic mapping.
  • Goal: focus on geological mapping as a core function of the U.S. Geological Survey within the long-term vision of adequately mapping the Nation’s geologic framework in three dimensions.
