We've Added 2 USGS Topo Layers to our Government Records Reports

February 4 2021

Current USGS topographic data has been added into Envirosite reports, resulting in two new map overlays - a Current USGS 7.5 Minute Topo Map and an Elevation Contour Lines Map. These new overlays are now included with your Government Environmental Records Reports in your PDF deliverables for both the Property Proximity Map and Area Map and can also be utilized within the online WorkBench application.

The USGS topographic map simplifies your work process related to the ASTM Physical Setting Source Maps and the elevation contours help you visualize how the land surface varies in the area near your subject property.
