USGS Hydrography Seminar Series - National Flood Interoperability Experiment - May 21 @ 2PM ET
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-qualityhydrographicdata. The US Geological Survey National Geospatial Program has begun a series of virtual seminarsto highlight the uses of 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. The first seminar was held April 9, and covered how the ICWater tool was used to respond to the January 2014 Elk River chemical spill in West Virginia.
