The 3D Elevation Program Broad Agency Announcement

The 3DEP BAA is the vehicle for soliciting partnership with non-Federal partners. It is a fair and equitable process that allows Federal, State, local, Tribal, and even private organizations to propose data acquisition projects. More information is available from the BAA Portal.

 

 

National States Geographic Information Council

The USGS and the National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) work under a cooperative agreement on the 3DEP for the Nation project. One of the goals of this collaboration is to work with NSGIC member states and private sector partners to develop state 3DEP acquisition plans.These state plans bring together 3DEP stakeholders to collectively outline a plan for lidar data acquisition that considers the unique requirements, geography, and funding partners in each state. More information about the 3DEP For the Nation project is available at https://www.nsgic.org/3dep-for-the-nation.  

 

Training Videos

Please refer to Lesson 11 series of videos to learn how to use the interfaces from the USGS YouTube Page.

Lesson 11a - US Interagency Elevation Inventory (USIEI)

  • This video demonstrates how to use the USIEI application to zoom, view footprints and attributes for existing topographic and bathymetric data and download the inventory to navigate to sites where the data can be downloaded. 

Lesson 11d - Using SeaSketch to View 3DEP Lidar Areas of Interest

  •  In this lesson you will learn how to zoom to your area of interest and view the footprints of existing and proposed topographic lidar projects.
