USGS Hydrography Seminar Series: Seminar 3 on July 30th

The U.S. Geological Survey National Geospatial Program has initiated a new series of virtual seminars to highlight the uses of hydrographic data. These seminars are intended to share success stories from users who have solved real world problems using hydrographic data, provide information about the National Hydrography Dataset and related products, and provide a virtual forum for users, similar to what might be encountered in a conference setting. Seminar 3, "Putting the NHD to work in the State of Washington", will take place on Thursday, July 30, 2015 at 2:00PM Eastern time.

The seminar will feature Anita Stohr of the Washington Department of Ecology discussing applications of hydrography within the State of Washington. There will also be lightning talks by Susan Phelps of AECOM, and David Holtschlag of the USGS Michigan-Ohio Water Science Center. They will discuss developing local-resolution hydrography from lidar; and UFINCH, a method for estimating unit and daily flows in a stream network defined by the National Hydrography Dataset with Value-Added Attributes (NHDPlus) using daily flows from USGS streamgages, respectively.
