The USGS was entrusted with the responsibility for mapping the country in and has been the primary civilian mapping agency of the United States ever since. The best known USGS maps are the ,scale topographic maps, also known as minute quadrangles.

From approximately tomore t minute maps were made to cover the 48 conterminous states. Producing an accurate topographic map is a long and complex process. It can take 5 years from the identification of a mapping requirement to the printing of a large-scale map like one of the USGS minute, ,scale quadrangle maps.

the mapping process, and USGS employees were quick to embrace this technology. In the s, USGS developed the AutoPlot, a device that used stepping motors to move scribing engravers to create a scribe coat negative of the topographic map neat line (latitude and longitude lines that bound the quadrangles) and horizontal pass points.
