Hi,

If you also receive inquiries related to minerals and(or) economic
development, this new (May 2015) USGS authored publications may be of
interest:

Exploration Review
http://minerals.usgs.gov/minerals/mflow/exploration-2014.pdf

This summary of international mineral exploration activities for the year
2014 draws upon information from industry sources, published literature and
specialists in the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Minerals
Information Center.

~~~~~

Also many federal agencies have mentioned an interest in map applications
available from the U.S. Geological Survey, so I have forwarded information
for an upcoming map services webinar below.

Please feel free to contact my colleagues directly, contacts listed below,
if your agency is looking for web and(or) mobile mapping options.

Enjoy the day!
Emily

------------------------------

Are you a developer, firm, or organization using mobile or web applications
to enable your users?  The USGS has publicly available geospatial services
and data to help your application development and enhancement.

The USGS’ National Geospatial Technical Operations Center (NGTOC
<http://ngtoc.usgs.gov/>) will be hosting a 30- minute webinar on “Using
The National Map services to enable your web and mobile mapping efforts” on
June 16 at 9am Mountain Time.

This webinar will feature a brief overview of services, data and products
that are publicly available, a quick overview on how AlpineQuest
<http://alpinequest.psyberia.net/>, a leading private firm, is leveraging
this public data to benefit their users, and a Question & Answer session
with a USGS developer to help you get the most out of the national
geospatial services.

“This is an opportunity from NGTOC to bring developers and users together
for some demonstrations and starting some dialogue,” said Brian Fox, the
NGTOC Systems Development Branch Chief.  “The webinar format allows us to
improve awareness of USGS geospatial services and develop a better
understanding of what users and developers need to make our data and
services more available and usable.”

To access the webinar, you’ll need to activate Cisco WebEx and call into
the conference number (toll free) 855-547-8255 and use the security code:
