AUTHORS: Dan Walters, US Geological Survey

ABSTRACT: The National Hydrography Requirements and Benefits Study (HRBS) was performed to establish a baseline understanding of national business uses, needs, and associated benefits for national hydrography data, and to inform the design of an enhanced future program that balances requirements, benefits, and costs. The study was sponsored by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service and was completed in May 2016. Study participants included 21 federal agencies, non-profits, private and commercial entities, and local, state, and tribal governments from across the 50 states, Washington, D.C., and American Samoa. An analysis of the results found that an improved national hydrography program has the potential to help users realize an estimated $602.5 million in annual program benefits if all reported requirements were met. This presentation will provide a review of the HRBS and USGS plans for using the results.
