Title: 6K Quads for ER Reference, US, EPA, SEGS
Abstract: This dynamic web map service contains reference quads for emergency response reconnaissance developed for use by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Grid cells are based on densification of the USGS Quarterquad (1:12,000 scale or 12K) grids for the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico and are roughly equivalent to 1:6000 scale (6K) quadrangles approximately 2 miles long on each side. Note: This data set is also available as a downloadable national-scale file (>80MB) and as individual regional subsets. Each regional extract includes a 20 mile buffer of tiles around each EPA Region.
Purpose: To provide a base reference grid system for the entire United States as a pre-staged resource for tracking and planning emergency response activities such as reconnaisance of debris after natural disasters, oil spill cleanups and planning of monitoring activities.
