Agency Information Collection Activities; Submission to the Office of Management and Budget for Review and Approval; Current and Future Landsat User Requirements, 1382-1383 [2018-00351]

Download as PDF 1382 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 8 / Thursday, January 11, 2018 / Notices would likely have to file numerous separate section 10(a)(1)(B) permit applications over the 25-year project period. This activity-by-activity approach would be more time consuming and less efficient than authorizing activities under this comprehensive incidental take permit, and could result in a fragmented mitigation approach. Proposed Action Without Reduction of Exclosure Boundaries This alternative is the proposed action without reductions in exclosure boundaries in the Boneyard and 6 exclosure areas. With this alternative, the boundaries of the Boneyard and 6 exclosures would not be reduced in size to increase areas for recreation. Off highway vehicle and camping opportunities in this area would remain as they are under the current management program. srobinson on DSK9F5VC42PROD with NOTICES Public Availability of Comments Written comments we receive become part of the public record associated with this action.

Abstract: The USGS Land Remote Sensing (LRS) Program is currently planning for the next generation of Landsat satellites. These satellites will continue the multi-decadal continuous collection of moderate-resolution, E:\FR\FM\11JAN1.SGM 11JAN1 srobinson on DSK9F5VC42PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 8 / Thursday, January 11, 2018 / Notices multispectral, remotely-sensed imagery through the Landsat program. Landsat satellite imagery has been available at no cost to the public since 2008, which has resulted in the distribution of millions of scenes each subsequent year, as well tens of thousands of Landsat users registering with USGS to access the data. In order to continue to provide high quality imagery that meets the needs of users, LRS is collecting current and future user requirements for sensor and satellite attributes. These attributes include spatial resolution, spectral bands, frequency of acquisition, and many others. LRS will use the information from this collection to understand if they are currently meeting the needs of their user community and to help determine the features of future Landsat satellites. Questions will be asked to determine user characteristics, current uses of imagery, preferred attributes of Landsat imagery, and benefits of Landsat imagery. All current U.S. Landsat imagery users who are registered with USGS will be invited to take part in the survey and a large sample of international Landsat users will also be invited. To protect the confidentiality and privacy of survey respondents, the data from the survey will not be associated with any respondent’s email address at any time and will only be analyzed and reported in aggregate. All files containing PII will be passwordprotected, housed on secure USGS servers, and only accessible to the research team. The data from the survey will be aggregated and statistically analyzed and the results will be published in publically available USGS reports. OMB Control Number: 1028–NEW.
