On-line Webinar from the NOAA Coastal Services Center

New Elevation Inventory for the Nation

Wednesday, August 1, 2012, 2:00 – 3:00 pm (eastern)

The U.S. Interagency Elevation Inventory was just completed in May 2012 and serves to display high-accuracy topographic and bathymetric data for the United States and its territories. The project is a collaborative effort between NOAA and the U.S. Geological Survey, with contributions from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

This resource is a comprehensive nationwide listing of known high-accuracy topographic data, including lidar and IfSAR, and bathymetric data, including NOAA hydrographic surveys, multibeam data, and bathymetric lidar. The information provided for each elevation data set includes many attributes such as vertical accuracy, point spacing, and date of collection. Also provided are a point of contact for the data and if available, a direct link to access the data.
