The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Western Coastal and Marine Geology (WCMG) team announces a new portal to its current projects, using a Google Maps interface. WCMG contractor Alex Ma programmed the initial Google Maps layout and interface with a few examples. WCMG Webmistress Laura Zink Torresan added all the locations across the globe.

Now visitors to the WCMG Web site can browse the globe to find just where the WCMG team is currently conducting research. All the standard Google Maps features are available, such as panning and zooming, and turning different map views on and off.

Please visit the WCMG Google Maps Project Interface.
