High-quality hydrographic data are critical to a broad range of government and private applications. Resource management, infrastructure planning, environmental monitoring, fisheries management, and disaster mitigation all depend on up-to-date, accurate, and high-quality hydrographic data. The U.S. Geological Survey National Geospatial Program has begun a series of virtual seminars to highlight the uses of hydrographic data. The next seminar will be on July 30 at 2 pm EDT. These seminars are intended to share success stories from users who have solved real world problems using hydrographic data, provide information about the National Hydrography Dataset and related products, and provide a virtual forum for users, similar to what might be encountered in a conference setting.
Connections are limited, and you will need to register to attend these seminars. Please visit this site here to sign up. After your registration is approved, you will receive instructions for joining the meeting.
The next seminar will feature Anita Stohr of the Washington Department of Ecology discussing applications of hydrography within the State of Washington. There will also be lightning talks by Susan Phelps of AECOM, and David Holtschlag of the USGS Michigan-Ohio Water Science Center. They will discuss developing local-resolution hydrography from lidar; and UFINCH, a method for estimating unit and daily flows in a stream network defined by the National Hydrography Dataset with Value-Added Attributes (NHDPlus) using daily flows from USGS streamgages, respectively.
