National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) to make presentation to the NOAA Integrated Ocean and Coastal Mapping (IOCM) Coordination Team [March 03, 2014]
Barry Eakins and Susan McLean of NGDC will make a presentation on March 13, 2014 to the IOCM Coordination Team on draft requirements for integrated topographic-bathymetric digital elevation models (DEMs) of U.S. coasts. The goal of this presentation is to solicit input and feedback from the IOCM Coordination Team on those requirements. NGDC, working with colleagues at the U.S. Geological Survey, developed these requirements for the next-generation of coastal DEMs in order to provide accurate, consistent, and seamless high-resolution public depictions of coastal elevation that increase coastal intelligence to support improved decision-making and community resiliency. The coastal DEM requirements will be tested and implemented by building DEMs of the New York-New Jersey shoreline that were impacted by storm surge from Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
