Order by State
Using the panel in the middle select the state for your order. Your selection will be indicated on the YOUR ORDER panel on the far right.
Order by Place
Using the panel in the middle first select a state for your order. You will then be given an option for what kind of place. Finally, the option to enter keywords with wildcard matching to narrow the list of places will be available. After this, press the Find Places button to get a list of places to choose from. Choosing a place from the list will display a map with a bounding red rectangle indicating the area for that place. Press the Select This Place button to move your selection to the YOUR ORDER panel on the far right.
Order by Bounding Rectangle
Enter four coordinates indicating the area of interest for your order. The coordinates can be either in decimal-degrees or by degrees-minutes-seconds. Entries in degrees-minutes-seconds will be converted to decimal-degrees for the order. Please use the hemisphere options as negative numbers are not accepted. When you are finished, press the
Check Desired Coordinates button to verify the coordinates and record the area of interest bounding rectangle to the YOUR ORDER panel on the far right. The map image will display a red rectangle indicating the desired coordinates.
Then use the Submit Desired Coordinates button to proceed to the next step.
Order by Interactive Map
Using the map in the center panel navigate to your area of interest by zooming and scrolling. Use the Basemaps button to select a different basemap.
Step 1 - Use the Select Area button on the map to start the selector mode. Select an area for your order by pressing the left mouse and dragging the mouse to draw a rectangle.
The coordinates of the rectangle will be moved to the YOUR ORDER panel on the far right.
Step 2 - Use the Accept Area button to accept the coordinates and move to the next step.
The list in the middle pane indicates the available map layers for your area of interest. The number of maps and total size of the map layers are listed next to the description. Clicking on the icon will provide a pop-up window with that map layer's description. Use the icon to get a list of individual maps for that map layer. Within the list of maps, use the icon to get metadata for the specific map and the
icon for an individual map preview. You may collapse this map list with the
icon. Your selections will be added to the YOUR ORDER Panel on the far right.
You may change your map layers after this step but all of the subsequent choices made for your order will be removed.
Maps in layers that are "...by State" cover an entire state.
Based on the map layers of the order the options for format, projection, and inclusion will be available in the center panel.
The delivered format for image layers is indicated in the format column of the
Status Maps page. For information about the Inclusion options, see the Inclusion Table.
Some formats are not available for some map layers. If you do not see your format listed you may wish to remove map layers and place separate orders.
Please note that there is a charge for physical media for non-USDA personnel.

Here are the available map layers for your selected area of interest.
Available file formats are based on the map layers requested.
Please select a file format for the non-Image map layers:
Note: The Separate ESRI...format choices separate state layers which are NOT 'By State' into individual shape files or feature classes for each county (or HUC8 in the case of NHD and WBD layers). Each layer selected in Step 2 (What) is always placed in its own separate shape or File GeoDataBase.
*WARNING*: The Separate ESRI...format choices are NOT RECOMMENDED for NHD because literally hundreds of layers are produced.
There is only one file format available for the non-image map layers requested and it has been chosen automatically. See the YOUR ORDER panel on the right for details.
Image map layers will be delivered in their Native Format
Available projections are based on the map layers chosen. A single projection must be chosen for the whole order.
If you desire to have different projections for different map layers, it is recommended to make separate orders for each map layer.
Please select a projection for the order:
There is only one projection available for the map layers requested and it has been chosen automatically. See the YOUR ORDER panel to the right for details.

Standard: The entire data set will be delivered for the order area chosen.
Extract: A partial data set will be delivered for the order area chosen.
