The national 3D Elevation Program, also known as 3DEP, has become a focal point around which states can bring together communities of practitioners whose programs depend upon mission-critical terrain datasets such as liDar. As the managing body for liDar across the nation, the 3DEP program of work includes development of strategies for stakeholder communities, data acquisition partnerships, experienced data acquisition contractors, technical expertise, standards and specifications, and, most importantly, high-quality elevation data. This presentation will describe the current status for CA in terms of data coverage, funding awards for the first 2 cycles, status of FY16 funding, as well as partnership strategies and progress for CA data development.

Presenter: Carol Ostergren, BS, MS Geology, Geographer, U.S. Geological Survey, Sacramento, CA
