-- The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and The American Geological Institute (AGI) announced a cooperative agreement that will focus on making the USGS Global Geographic Information System (GIS) database readily available to educators and the general public in the form of a DVD based world atlas. The USGS Global GIS database contains a wealth of USGS and other public domain data, including global coverages of elevation, landcover, seismicity, and resources of minerals and energy at a nominal scale of 1:1 million. The GIS, which will run on the included Environmental Systems Research Institute's (ESRI) ArcView Data Publisher software, are available both by region on CD-ROMís and on a single  DVD-ROM. (Some of the regional CDs are no longer available.)
