The 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) initiative is being developed to respond to needs for high-quality topographic data and for a wide range of other three-dimensional representations of the Nation’s natural and constructed features. The primary goal of 3DEP is to systematically collect enhanced elevation data in the form of high-quality light detection and ranging (lidar) data over the conterminous United States, Hawaii, and the U.S. territories, as well as interferometric synthetic aperture radar (ifsar) data over Alaska. The 3DEP initiative is based on the results of the National Enhanced Elevation Assessment (NEEA), which indicated an optimal benefit to cost ratio for Quality Level 2 (QL2) data collected over 8-years to complete national coverage. The implementation model for 3DEP is based on multi-agency partnership funding for acquisition, with the USGS acting in a lead program management role to facilitate planning and acquisition for the broader community, through the use of government contracts and partnership agreements. The annual Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is a competitive solicitation issued to facilitate the collection of lidar and derived elevation data for the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). Federal agencies, state and local governments, tribes, academic institutions and the private sector are eligible to submit proposals. The 3DEP public meetings will introduce this opportunity to the broadest stakeholder community possible and provide a forum for interested parties to discuss elevation data collection needs of mutual interest that could be addressed by a coordinated investment. Advanced Registration is required for meeting attendance. National Webinars will be recorded and made available for viewing.

Announcement of USGS National Geospatial Program (NGP) 3D 
Elevation Program (3DEP) FY15 Public Meetings in Preparation for the 
Upcoming Release of the USGS Broad Agency Announcement for 3D Elevation

ACTION: Notice of Meeting(s).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) initiative is being developed 
to respond to needs for high-quality topographic data and for a wide 
range of other three-dimensional representations of the Nation's 
natural and constructed features. The primary goal of 3DEP is to 
systematically collect enhanced elevation data in the form of high-
quality light detection and ranging (lidar) data over the conterminous 
United States, Hawaii, and the U.S. territories, as well as 
interferometric synthetic aperture radar (ifsar) data over Alaska. The 
3DEP initiative is based on the results of the National Enhanced 
Elevation Assessment (NEEA), which indicated an optimal benefit to cost 
ratio for Quality Level 2 (QL2) data collected over 8-years to complete 
national coverage. The implementation model for 3DEP is based on multi-
agency partnership funding for acquisition, with the USGS acting in a 
lead program management role to facilitate planning and acquisition for 
the broader community, through the use of government contracts and 
partnership agreements. The annual Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is a 
competitive solicitation issued to facilitate the collection of lidar 
and derived elevation data for the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). Federal 
agencies, state and local governments, tribes, academic institutions 
and the private sector are eligible to submit proposals. The 3DEP 
public meetings will introduce this opportunity to the broadest 
stakeholder community possible and provide a forum for interested
