USGS Digital Line Graph, Optional Format (DLG-O)

Description: Vector data derived from U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographic maps. Global Mapper will not display DLG-S data, an older format that is no longer sold or supported. Most USGS DLG-Optional data do not contain record delimiters. Global Mapper does not require that delimiters be added, and will display DLG-O data with or without delimiters. Other software may require either the absence or presence of delimiters.

Available for free? No. However, some scales have been converted to Spatial Data Format Standard (STDS). See links below.
