Base Map layers

Sep 2, 2009 at 5:45 PM

Pretty cartography is important and the current one is fairly vanilla.

HUC-8 or other such watershed boundaries would be a useful base layer.

Major aquifers would be a useful baselayer.

We have HUC-8 in there now.

We can get major aquifers in the continental US (CONUS) from the National Atlas (7.5 MB zipped, 10.5 MB unzipped, shapefile).  Should we include aquifers outside of CONUS?

In addition to aquifers, what other layers should be in there?

Also, what layers do we have now, which should either be removed or changed?  For a list, see the parallel discussion at
