A Quick, Easy, and Free way to Download any Quad in the Country

National Geographic has built an easy to use web interface that allows anyone to quickly find any quad in the country for downloading and printing. Each quad has been pre-processed to print on a standard home, letter size printer. These are the same quads that were printed by USGS for decades on giant bus-sized pressed but are now available in multi-page PDFs that can be printed just about anywhere. They are pre-packaged using the standard 7.5 minute, 1:24,000 base but with some twists:

-Page 1 is an overview map showing the Quad in context
-Pages 2 through 5 are the standard USGS Quads cut in quarters to fit on standard printers
-Hillshading has been added to each page of the PDF to help visualize the topography

"Here you will find one of the greatest historical atlases: Charles O. Paullin and John K. Wright's Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States, first published in 1932. This digital edition reproduces all of the atlas's nearly 700 maps. Many of these beautiful maps are enhanced here in ways impossible in print, animated to show change over time or made clickable to view the underlying data—remarkable maps produced eight decades ago with the functionality of the twenty-first century."

"For nearly four centuries, Harvard's libraries, archives, and museums have developed extraordinary collections that reflect the scope and the breadth of the University's world-renowned academic programs. In 2002, Harvard began to open an online window on those resources through the Open Collections Program (OCP). OCP has created six subject-specific, web-accessible collections that can support teaching and learning around the world. Today, OCP collections account for over 2.3 million digitized pages, including more than 225,000 manuscript pages."

  • Excess IBD sharing
  • “the entire segment of chromosome 6, between 25 and 35 Mb, is shared among individuals unrecombined at least 4-fold more than any other region in the genome”
  • Albrechtson et al (2011) found a region on chromosome 8 centred on position 9.9 Mb which exhibited an excess of IBD sharing. High IBD sharing signals were also seen on each side of the centromere on chromosome 11. These regions contain clusters of olfactory receptors. Evidence for increased IBD was also seen on chromosomes 2, 3, and 5.[16
