USGS National Map Orthoimagery

The U. S. Geological Survey seeks to award funds for the collection and processing of high resolution elevation data and orthoimagery. Many organizations including state and local governments, private and non-profit firms, as well as many Federal government agencies use these data to support their applications and requirements planning, infrastructure improvements, resource assessments and scientific studies.

Amount: $500,000

Date due: December 1, 2009

The data collected under this announcement will become available to the public through The National Map. Priorities for the program include collecting elevation data over those coastal areas of United States most susceptible to storm and hurricane flooding, earthquake damage, and coastal erosion and also increasing coverage and availability of leaf-off high resolution orthoimagery.
