SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The primary goal of 3DEP is to systematically collect enhanced elevation data in the form of highquality 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 mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:14 Aug 04, 2017 Jkt 241001 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 topographic data 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). It has been included in the annual Catalog of Domestic Federal Assistance under USGS 15.8 17.

The 3DEP informational training webinars will introduce this opportunity to the wide array of prospective applicants and provide a summary of the BAA application procedures. Advanced Registration is required. National Webinars will be recorded and made available for viewing. Paul Wiese, Acting Deputy Director, National Geospatial Program.
