The U.S. Geological Survey is hosting the eighth in a series of webinars on hydrography on Thursday May 19, 2016 at 2:00 PM ET. The topic of this webinar will be lidar technology and implications for hydrology and hydrography. High-quality hydrographic data are critical to a broad range of government and private applications.
The U.S. Geological Survey National Geospatial Program is initiating a new series of virtual seminars to highlight the uses of hydrographic data. Resource management, infrastructure planning, environmental monitoring, fisheries management, and disaster mitigation all depend on up-to-date, accurate, and high-quality hydrographic data. 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.
This webinar will feature Karl Heidemann, Senior Lidar Scientist with the USGS EROS Data Center. Karl has been instrumental in the development of both lidar technology and processing techniques in the public and private sector, and is the lead author on the USGS Lidar Base Specification. Karl will review the technology and concepts, and discuss some of the implications for hydrography and hydrologic analyses.
