AUTHORS: Dan Walters, US Geological Survey

ABSTRACT: The primary goal of 3DEP is to systematically collect enhanced elevation data in the form of high-quality light detection and ranging (lidar) data over the conterminous United States, Hawaii, and the U.S. territories over an 8-year period. USGS Broad Agency Announcements established a competitive solicitation procedure for partnering with federal agencies for lidar acquisition. So far 3DEP has received considerable support from federal, state, local, nonprofit and private organizations providing funds in partnership to collect lidar and provide high-quality elevation products. The presentation will describe the program, review the status of 3DEP in the northeast, provide an overview of the tools to discover and access the data and close with a discussion of upcoming 3DEP activities that will benefit the region.
