CMHRP Lidar Coordinator/USGS Co-Chair of Florida Coastal Mapping Program to co-host the 2019 Northeast Florida Seafloor Mapping Prioritization Workshop

Xan Fredericks, Lidar Coordinator for the Coastal and Marine Hazards and Resources Program and the USGS Co-Chair for the Florida Coastal Mapping Program (FCMaP), will co-host and help moderate the 2019 Northeast Florida Seafloor Mapping Prioritization Workshop on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, in Jacksonville, Florida.

FCMaP is a Federal-State partnership with the goal of coordinating the collection of modern, high resolution data for all of Florida's coastal waters, from the shore to the shelf break, in the next decade. The workshop takes place at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in Jacksonville, Florida. The primary target for the mapping effort is elevation information of the open-ocean coast (bathymetry and coastal topography) that supports numerous applications including infrastructure, navigation, benthic habitat mapping, restoration projects, resource management, emergency response, and coastal resiliency and hazards. FCMaP has collaborated with NOAA to develop a prioritization tool to get partner and stakeholder input on where, when, and why seafloor data are needed.
