USA Select, the most detailed and current image mosaic of the U.S., provides a common operating picture to support Homeland Security and the 120 Cities  projects. 

Based on USGS National Map Standards, this digital reference base map allows for 1) analysis on a national, regional and urban level; 2) co-registration of vectors, digital elevation models, and high resolution inserts.  USA Select is created from current SPOT (10 meter panchromatic) and Landsat 7 (multispectral) imagery, merged into a true color seamless mosaic in GeoTIFF, CIB, or any other format needed.
