users to build applications on their computer systems that integrate with USGS
imagery found on our web site. If you are unfamiliar with Web Services, you can
download our Web Service white paper and learn about

DRG data from UTM NAD83 to Geographic projection (EPSG:4326)! New styles have
been added to draw gridlines in a number of different colors.
Click here to view a web map that contains DOQ imagery from two UTM

Access the MSR Maps Service WSDL file.
If you have Visual Studio.NET, you can reference this file using the Web
References item found on the Project menu.
Access the LandmarkService WSDL
file. The LandmarkService contains methods to access the geo-location
(longitude and latitude) of well known places such as schools, golf courses,
hospitals, etc. You can use LandmarkService methods and MSR Maps Service methods
together to build layered maps.
This web site and services are running the released versions of
VS.NET 2003 and .NET Framework 1.1. The
