In view of the increasing severity of the energy crisis, the President's announced goal of energy self-sufficiency, and the resulting activity in energy exploration and development, the U.S Geological Survey began an extensive requirements review to determine the need for topographic maps and related products in areas of the country with known and potential energy reserves. Standard 1:24,000-scale topographic maps were emphasized, but rapid-response products, such as orthophotoquads and advanced materials, and special products, such as slope maps and digitized terrain data, were considered. Representatives of agencies with major responsibilities for energy exploration, evaluation, and exploitation were interveiwed. Finally, the information was reduced to a set of energy-mapping priorities, which are being adopted in the mapping program. /Author/
