Abstract The Hydrography Addressing Tool (HydroAdd) is a web tool built by the USGS National Geospatial Program (NGP). HydroAdd will support users by providing a mechanism for referencing, or addressing, diverse external datasets to the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD). As an example, a user could use HydroAdd to reference the geographic locations and other details of field observations of fish presence to the NHD. HydroAdd will provide a framework for the management of addressed data, as well as enable upstream and down-stream analyses within the context of the stream network itself. Any type of information could be addressed to the stream network in this way, making this tool highly useful for a broad range of purposes that benefit the Nation. HydroAdd users will be Federal employees, such as USGS or other Department of the Interior (DOI) employees; or members of the public, such as state, local, private sector, academic, or other users with knowledge of GIS and knowledge of how to create a web feature service. HydroAdd allows users to edit the geometry of the features in their web feature services to be coincident with NHD features. Users cannot edit the NHD with HydroAdd as it is displayed in the application as a read-only reference layer. Users must make their own datasets available to HydroAdd as a web feature service, either from their own server hardware or from a thirdparty service, and all edits take place in their own web feature service. To use HydroAdd, users must register a user account profile which contains their business email and username. This information is stored in the application database. A user’s profile is visible only to themselves and by HydroAdd administrators. HydroAdd administrators are a limited group of USGS staff. User accounts are important because they enable HydroAdd administrators to contact and help the user if needed, help to protect the user’s data from edit by anyone who is not the user, and enable tracking on the editing history for the datasets through reporting. E:\FR\FM\19AUN1.SGM 19AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 158 / Thursday, August 19, 2021 / Notices HydroAdd administrators also have access to reporting functions. The reports detail the edit history of the service layer. User profiles are visible in these reports. Standard editors do not have access to the reporting functions.

Abstract: This information collection pertains to onshore geophysical exploration on Federal lands. Federal land-management agencies are responsible for regulating geophysical exploration on the Federal surface estate. The BLM regulates exploration for oil and gas on lands it manages, and on occasion regulates such exploration on lands managed by other Federal land-management agencies. The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) regulates exploration for various types of minerals, including oil and gas, on lands it manages. The BLM and the USFS propose to revise the accuracy and usefulness of the forms they use for this collection of information. OMB Control Number 1004–0162 is currently scheduled to expire on October 31, 2021. The BLM is requesting that OMB renew this Control Number for an additional three years. Title of Collection: Onshore Geophysical Exploration (43 CFR part 3150 and 36 CFR parts 228 and 251). OMB Control Number: 1004–0162. Form Numbers: BLM Form 3150–4/FS Form 2800–16 and BLM Form 3150–5/ FS Form 2800–16a. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: The respondents for this collection of information are businesses that seek to conduct geophysical exploration on Federal lands.

    The Hydrography Addressing Tool (HydroAdd) is a web tool built by 
the USGS National Geospatial Program (NGP). HydroAdd will support users 
by providing a mechanism for referencing, or addressing, diverse 
external datasets to the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD). As an 
example, a user could use HydroAdd to reference the geographic 
locations and other details of field observations of fish presence to 
the NHD. HydroAdd will provide a framework for the management of 
addressed data, as well as enable upstream and down-stream analyses 
within the context of the stream network itself. Any type of 
information could be addressed to the stream network in this way, 
making this tool highly useful for a broad range of purposes that 
benefit the Nation.
    HydroAdd users will be Federal employees, such as USGS or other 
Department of the Interior (DOI) employees; or members of the public, 
such as state, local, private sector, academic, or other users with 
knowledge of GIS and knowledge of how to create a web feature service. 
HydroAdd allows users to edit the geometry of the features in their web 
feature services to be coincident with NHD features. Users cannot edit 
the NHD with HydroAdd as it is displayed in the application as a read-
only reference layer. Users must make their own datasets available to 
HydroAdd as a web feature service, either from their own server 
hardware or from a third-party service, and all edits take place in 
their own web feature service.
    To use HydroAdd, users must register a user account profile which 
contains their business email and username. This information is stored 
in the application database. A user's profile is visible only to

help to protect the user's data from edit by anyone who is not the
