The Digital Raster Graphic (DRG) files were removed from EarthExplorer in November 2015. The EROS DRG file copies have not been updated in over 17 years and are of lessor quality than the DRG files currently available from The National Map http://nationalmap.gov/
The National Map DRGs are more comprehensive in coverage and historical depth.
DRGs have been made for all quadrangles in the USGS standard topographic map series for the United States, its territories and trusts. Source maps include:
DRGs are in TIFF 6.0 and use GeoTIFF 0.2 specifications to define a set of TIFF tags. These tags describe all cartographic information associated with the file. The average file size is 10 megabytes.
