New Federal Partners Join the U.S. Interagency Elevation Inventory

The U.S. Interagency Elevation Inventory provides an important central location for accessing information about high-resolution topographic and bathymetric data sets. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Department of Agriculture have recently joined the effort to update the inventory with publicly available, high-accuracy elevation data sets for the U.S. and its territories. These groups join NOAA, the U.S. Geological Survey, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency in maintaining an inventory where users can see the extent of data sets on a map, as well as determine information such as the date of collection and quality level. Also provided is either a point of contact or, when available, a link to download the data and metadata. The inventory supports the 3D Elevation Program and the Integrated Ocean and Coastal Mapping effort and is provided to the public via NOAA’s Digital Coast.This resource was last updated in March 2015.
