3DEP and 3DHP Presentations in Your State

Contact your local National Map Liaison to learn more about the 3DNTM Data Collaboration Announcement (DCA) as well as the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) and 3D Hydrography Program (3DHP).

Find or Request Presentations on 3DEP, 3DHP and 3DNTM DCA 

The 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) and 3D Hydrography Program (3DHP) rely on investments from a wide range of stakeholder partnerships to share data acquisition costs in support of mission and business requirements. The 3D National Topography Model (3DNTM) is a new initiative to update, improve, and integrate USGS elevation and hydrography data to support demanding scientific requirements and enable data-driven decisions across user communities. Key elements of the 3DNTM are in place or under active development.

The 3DNTM Data Collaboration Announcement (DCA) provides a vehicle for partnering with the USGS and other Federal agencies to acquire high-quality 3D elevation data or 3D hydrography data.

Federal agencies, state and local governments, Tribes, academic institutions, non-profits, and the private sector are eligible to submit projects to partner with the USGS on the DCA. Applicants to the 3DNTM DCA may contribute funds toward a lidar or hydrography data acquisition via the Geospatial Products and Services Contracts (GPSC), or they may request 3DEP/3DHP funds toward data acquisition where the applicant is the acquiring authority.

 
National Webinar 

The USGS hosts a public webinar each year to introduce the DCA opportunity to the broadest stakeholder community possible and provide a summary of the application process. Each year’s DCA has its own set of unique information. Visit the Data Collaboration Announcement Portal for more information.
