How Will 3DEP Benefit Your State?

Reston, Va., May 14, 2014—Want to know how elevation will benefit your state? The USGS National Geospatial Program is advancing the 3D Elevation Program, known as 3DEP, in response to the growing need for high-quality three-dimensional representations of the nation’s natural and constructed features.

3DEP uses modern technologies like lidar and ifsar to collect high-density elevation data over the U.S. These data are essential to a broad range of applications and support a large range of business uses including national security, wildlife and habitat management, water resource management, and geologic hazards mitigation, to name a few.

Currently, there are 24 3DEP state-specific fact sheets available on the 3DEP or The National Map websites. http://on.doi.gov/1loqqCZ
