OGC Web Map Tile Services (WMTS) available

The Open Geospatial Consortium provides a specification for serving geographic information through the web as georeferenced images that are tiled, divided into regularly-sized units, and cached, for quick delivery; this is called the Web Map Tile Service specification. In addition to providing a visible representation of selected geospatial data, it allows the scientific attributes of the data to be queried geographically. The services listed below conform to the WMTS specification version 1.0.0.
Services of this type are specified in the formal capabilities document generated by the software, which can be obtained using the URL https://mrdata.usgs.gov/mapcache/wmts?service=WMTS&request=GetCapabilities&version=1.0.0&
