Welcome to the Lake Tahoe Data Clearinghouse website !!!
This Lake Tahoe Data Clearinghouse website, created and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in partnership with Federal, State, tribal, and local agencies and groups, is a gateway to information and data on Lake Tahoe and its basin.
The primary goal of this clearinghouse is to facilitate the coordination of research, monitoring, and environmental-management activities in the Lake Tahoe Basin and to ensure the widest possible access to data and information resulting from such activities. The site is designed to ensure that all interested parties -- scientists, engineers, resource managers, developers, and the public -- have quick and easy access to Lake Tahoe data and information.
Users of this clearinghouse have access to a wide range of digital data and Geographic Information System (GIS) products. Examples include high-quality digital maps of digital elevation models, digital orthophoto quadrangles, digital line graphs, and digital raster graphics for the Lake Tahoe area. Some of the data resides on the USGS server at the Western Geographic Science Center, Menlo Park, California. The majority of the data and information, located in databases maintained by the partnering agencies, is accessible from this clearinghouse via links.
This section is a good starting point for those interested in a variety of information concerning Lake Tahoe.
This section allows users to have easy access to a wide range of digital data and GIS products specific to Lake Tahoe. Examples include high-quality digital maps of bathymetry, hydrography, roads, vegetation cover, forests, timber, soils, and population for the Lake Tahoe Basin.
