March 19, 2024 – On Demand, Custom, Topographic Maps with topoBuilder

The U.S. Geological Survey’s topoBuilder application enables users to create custom topographic maps on demand using the best available National Map data. In topoBuilder, users can generate topographic maps, called OnDemand Topos, centered anywhere in the United States or territories, with various customization options and export formats (GeoTIFF or geospatial PDF). Currently, two map types are available, the 7.5-Minute Topo (1:24,000-scale for the conterminous United States and Hawaii, 1:20,000-scale for U.S. territories, and 1:25,000-scale for Alaska) and the 100K Topo (1:100,000-scale nationally). Future releases are planned for additional customizations such as user-added content, geospatial data exports, and additional map scales. The topoBuilder application, customization options, and OnDemand Topo maps will be demonstrated.  The application is available at topoBuilder (
