Description:

Use this scaleable set of seamless topographic maps, in this case from the USGS, inside ArcGIS Online to examine the physical and cultural geography of the USA. 20 separate landform features are examined, including tombolo, col, salt dome, lava beds, marine terraces, and much more. The lesson is embedded in the metadata of the map, so make sure you look for it. The topographic maps included are at 1:24,000, 1:100,000, and 1:250,000 scale depending on your level of zoom. Notes are included for studies outside the USA.
