Hydrography Track. Introduction to the National Hydrography Dataset and Stewardship
AUTHORS: Tatyana Dimascio, USGS

ABSTRACT: The National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) is a comprehensive set of digital spatial data that represents the surface water of the United States. Ongoing maintenance of the NHD is essential. The collaborative data stewardship program with State and local governments, Federal agencies, and other users of the data helps improve the NHD. Updates to the NHD are made by stewards, transmitted to the USGS, processed, and made available in the national dataset for distribution. This presentation will provide a high-level overview of the NHD and stewardship process.

Natural Resources #2 Track. Markup Application for Hydrography Datasets
AUTHORS: Tatyana Dimascio, USGS

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Geological Survey has created a new web application, called Markup App, as a user-friendly communication tool for the public and partners to submit suggested corrections to the national datasets. The first phase of the Markup application is focused on the refinements for the hydrography datasets: National Hydrography Dataset (NHD), a National Hydrography Dataset Plus High Resolution (NHDPlus HR), and the Watershed Boundaries Dataset (WBD). This presentation will introduce the new application and discuss its role in the workflow for editing national hydrography features.
