SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The U.S. Geological Survey National Geospatial Program (NGP) is the 
Federal agency tasked by the Office of Management and Budget Circular 
A-16 with coordination of the hydrography (surface-water features) 
geospatial data theme. The purpose of this study is to ensure that the 
NGP's management of hydrography data theme is optimized to fully 
support the potential of geospatial data and information use in water 
science and mapping.
    This one-time, voluntary information collection will engage 
professional users of hydrography information, including scientists, 
planners, and managers from Federal, state, and local government as 
well as academia and the private sector. The process will be guided by 
an interagency management team led by USGS with support from a 
professional services contractor. The information collection will 
include an online survey as well as interviews and focus group using a 
standardized template. The information collection will focus on (1) 
respondent's current use of hydrography data, (2) desired improvements 
to hydrography data, and (3) benefits accrued to the respondent's 
mission if enhanced hydrography data were available. Personally 
Identifiable Information (PII) will not be sought. The results of the 
information collection will be used to evaluate potential future 
program changes for USGS hydrography data. A summary of the results 
will be published in a USGS publication.
    We will protect information from respondents considered proprietary 
under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its 
implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under regulations at 30 
CFR 250.197, ``Data and information to be made available to the public 
or for limited inspection''. All information will be stored according 
to established USGS security and information access protocols.
