1.     Scroll or use your browser "find" function to search this Index for a particular feature name or location.

2.     Copy the Latitude and Longitude of your selected feature on a piece of paper for later reference. ( 311613N is 31° 16’ 13”  and 0953747W is 95° 37’ 47” – drop the leading 0  )

3.     Click on the name of the feature to view a map of the county. (Features submitted by other than USGS will appear immediately and no more action on you part to locate your feature.)

4.     Note that as you move the cursor across the map that the latitude and longitude of the cursor is given in boxes on the left side of the page.

5.     Move the cursor to display the latitude and longitude you recorded in step 2, and then left click. This click will center your selected feature in the center of the map. This is the location of your selected feature. If the copied lat & long is given in decimal degrees (31.78923) select DD.DD in the coordinates box directly under the Lat & long boxes.

6.     Note that you can Zoom In or out by clicking on the Zoom  + or at the bottom of the map, and that clicking on the red corner markers move the entire map.

7.     Items submitted by sources other than the USGS show approximate locations only. They have not been surveyed but usually are given to editor as verbal or written descriptions.

  1. Locations of creeks & streams are given at the mouth of the creek or stream, i.e. where it joins a larger stream.
