MAPPS Minute: Congressional Testimony and Upcoming LiDAR Webinar

Posted By Nick Palatiello, Tuesday, April 22, 2014

MAPPS testified in favor of 3DEP funding before the Interior Appropriations Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives on April 10 indicating the strong support within MAPPS for national LIDAR data that will provide a very positive return on investment and serve of variety of elevation needs for government at all levels, as well as the private sector.

President Obama has included funding for 3DEP in his budget request to Congress, and MAPPS testimony urged Congress to fund that request, or increase the amount if possible.

USGS has updated its national LIDAR specification to reflect the 3DEP program and other revisions.  MAPPS will host a webinar with Karl Heidemann, USGS EROS Center, on the USGS Base LIDAR Specification this Thursday, April 24 at 1:00 PM Eastern Time.  Register here

All members have been notified of the schedule for the 2014 MAPPS Geospatial Products and Services Excellence Awards competition.

Entries are due August 8 and winners will be announced at the Geospatial & Engineering International Conference on Thursday, September 25, 2014 in Alexandria, VA.
