Washington Division of Geology and Earth Resources (WDGER) no longer has a division webpage. The Department of Natural Resources Geology & Earth Sciences page is missing many of the links formerly on the Division page. These links have been moved to the inside front cover of the Publications List. The back page of the Pub List has links to publications that are not part of a series.
Current (1996) and historical indexes to topographic mapping of Washington State are now online, accessed through a link on the last page of the DGER Publications List [http://www.dnr.wa.gov/Publications/ger_publications_list.pdf]. The current USGS index shows printed quadrangle maps of all scales for Washington State. This index comes in handy if you want a visual of a quadrangle location or need to know how to spell a quad name. Quad names have evolved over the years, so if you need to check the name or type of quadrangle referred to in an old report, visit the older indexes, which include those published by the USGS, Army Map Service, and WADNR.
Did you know that quadrangle boundaries are among the base layers on the Washington Interactive Geologic Map? [http://www.dnr.wa.gov/ResearchScience/Topics/GeosciencesData/Pages/geology_portal.aspx]
Digital ortho (7.5-minute topographic) quads are available at http://rocky2.ess.washington.edu/data/raster/doqs/index.html.
Clipped 7.5-minute quads are at http://rocky2.ess.washington.edu/data/raster/drgclip/index.html.
Washington State Geologic Information Portal at the Washington Division of Geology and Earth Resources allows you to access interactive earth science mapping, data, and related information to create custom maps. Current layers online include surface and subsurface geology, earthquake locations, faults, liquefaction susceptibility, NEHRP seismic site class, landslides, tsunami evacuation zones, geothermal resources, earth resource permit locations, and historic coal mine maps.
