Community-wide 3DEP Expenditures Include:

  • USGS National Geospatial Program (NGP) data acquisition investments shown in dark green
  • Program management and data processing and delivery costs shown in light green.
  • Supplemental appropriation funds for hurricane and wildfire disaster-related lidar acquisition and data management, shown in purple and light purple, respectively.


Note: The USGS received \$18.3M in FY18 and \$10.2M in FY19 of supplemental funds for lidar acquisition for areas impacted by hurricanes and wildfire disasters.  The chart shows the funding by year obligated.  For example, the FY19 supplemental funding was received at the end of the fiscal year, and \$2.8M was obligated in FY19 with the remainder obligated in FY20 and FY21.

The USGS funding for 3DEP is part of the Core Science Systems - National Geospatial Program line item funded by the FY21 enacted budget at \$79.454M.  The National Geospatial Program line-item funds 3DEP, the National Hydrography Datasets, US Topo, The National Map viewer, and other components.  The FY21 enacted budget included \$35.7M for acquiring, processing, and delivering 3DEP-quality data to meet the community-wide goal.
