US: The USGS National Geospatial Program has included US Census Bureau’s Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (TIGER) roads data for the new US Topo maps, starting with the state of Wisconsin. Facilitated by US Census Bureau, the TIGER database was formulated before the 1990 census to provide numerous innovative maps sheets to census enumerators. The database consists of features — such as roads, railroads, rivers, and legal and statistical geographic boundaries. "The addition of TIGER’s roads layer into the US Topo maps is a great example of how data from one agency can benefit another agency. The Census Bureau and the USGS have a long history of collaboration and sharing. This is another win for the American public,” said Timothy Trainor, Chief, Geography Division, US Census Bureau.
