The National Map: Small Scale The National Map is now offering a collection of small-scale datasets that can be downloaded for free. Although the 1997-2014 Edition of the National Atlas of the United States was retired in September 2014, The National Map recognizes the importance of continuing to make a collection of the small-scale datasets, originally developed for the National Atlas, available to users. Small-scale maps have an advantage over large-scale maps when there is a need to show a large area in a single view. The National Map collection of 197 small-scale datasets can be downloaded at small-scale data download page . Even though the 1997-2014 Edition of the National Atlas has retired, will continue to offer the Set of Dynamic Topographic Maps Illustrating Physical Features. The National Map Small-Scale website also link to Global Map, an international effort by national mapping organizations to produce consistent and accurate mapping data of the world at a scale of 1:1,000,000.

4 New Typographic Maps Analysis of World Literacy Patterns (With Map) Any attempt on the analysis of world literacy patterns is seriously handicapped by the unavailability of comparable data for all the countries of the world. Till recently, for much of the less developed parts of the world, data on literacy and education was not available. Further, because of the differences in definition and in enumeration procedure, no actual figure can be accepted with complete certainty. A relatively more accurate estimate on literacy rates are available for the developed countries of the world. However, as most of these countries have attained universal literacy, they seem to have discontinued publishing data on literacy. Probably, because of this, the report does not provide world’s average literacy rate. Table 6.1 presents the latest estimates on literacy and education aspect for the select countries and for major world divisions. The patterns in literacy level by individual countries are shown in Figure 6.1. In Asia, the situation is somewhat better.

This webpage was created for SERC by Heather Rissler and Aleshia Mueller in consultation with Greg Neumann of the Goddard Space Flight Center. The Dataset The Mars Orbital Laser Altimeter (MOLA) data set consists of two years of altimetry data on surface features on Mars. MOLA data sets are produced by the MOLA Science Team and archived by the Planetary Data Systems (PDS) Geosciences Node. Use and Relevance MOLA collects information about the shape of Mars, referenced to it's center of mass. More detailed information on important discoveries stemming from MOLA data is available. Use in Teaching This data can be used to teach the following topics and skills in Structural and Planetary Geology and Geomorphology: Topics Elevation and shape features of Mars Mars topography Methodology of laser altimetry Seasonal changes in snow cover on Mars Structural evidence of water flow on Mars Cloud coverage of Mars Skills

Mission planners at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) hugged, hollered, and high-fived when the most sophisticated scientific instrument in the history of interplanetary exploration gently landed on the desert planet this past August. Navigating through space en route to another planet's surface was only half the battle for MSL engineers.
