CGS Information Warehouse

The CGS Information Warehouse is a place to find and download selected reports, maps, and data published by the California Geological Survey.

Choose a link in the Themes section below, and click it. A new window will open containing an interactive map specific to that theme.

Tips for using the Information Warehouse maps:

  • Read the map's welcome screen (if there is one); it provides important information.
  • The map will show geographic regions (typically a grid of USGS 7.5-minute quadrangles); click on one of these regions to view a popup with links to the available maps, reports, and/or data for that region. 
  • Type a place name in the map's search field (upper left corner of map) to help you find your location or quadrangle of interest.
  • Play with the controls in the upper left and right corners of each map.
  • Have fun exploring!
