Count Component Title Abstract
1 NTHMP DEM Project NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) is building high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs) to support individual coastal States as part of the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program's (NTHMP) efforts to improve community preparedness and hazard mitigation. These integrated bathymetric-topographic DEMs are used to support tsunami and coastal inundation mapping. Bathymetric, topographic, and shoreline data used in DEM compilation are obtained from various sources, including NGDC, the U.S. National Ocean Service (NOS), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and other federal, state, and local government agencies, academic institutions, and private companies. DEMs are referenced to various vertical and horizontal datums depending on the specific modeling requirements of each State. For specific datum information on each DEM, refer to the appropriate DEM documentation. Cell sizes also vary depending on the specification required by modelers in each State, but typically range from 8/15 arc-second (~16 meters) to 8 arc-seconds (~240 meters).

                  Count Component DateTime Description
                  1 2008-10-31T00:00:00 Datasets are visually inspected with ArcGIS for identification and editing of data anomalies. Datasets are then compared with overlapping datasets to ensure data consistency.
                  1 2008-10-31T00:00:00 xyz files of the bathymetric data are surfaced using GMT's 'surface' tool onto an 8 arc-second grid that is interpolated to fill empty cells. Points extracted every 10 meters along the coastline are also included to ensure that the bathymetric grid reaches zero at the coast. The resulting Arc ASCII grid is imported into ArcGIS and clipped to the coastline to remove values over land.
                  1 2009-04-20T00:00:00 All datasets obtained by NGDC are converted to common horizontal and vertical datums based on the States' requirements using FME. They are also converted to common file format, ESRI point shapefiles, for visualization and inspection.
                  1 2009-04-20T00:00:00 xyz files for each input dataset are gridded using MB-System's 'mbgrid' tool, which utilizes a high-tension spline interpolation method to fill grid cells with no input elevation values. Preferential weighting is given to more recent, higher-accuracy datasets. Gridding is typically performed in quadrants, each with a 5% data buffer. The grids are imported in ArcGIS and seamlessly merged to create the final DEM.
                  1 2009-04-20T00:00:00 The DEMs are quantitatively evaluated by comparing with source datasets. They are visually evaluated by converting to UTM-zone coordinates (units of meters horizontally and vertically) and then creating a slope grid to identify gridding artifacts in the DEMs.
                  1 2015-04-22T00:00:00 NOAA created the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) by merging NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC), and National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC), including the National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC), per the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, Public Law 113-235. NCEI launched publicly on April 22, 2015.
