Authors: Drew Decker, Carol Ostergren, Maria Kottermair
The National Map (TNM) is a collaborative effort between USGS and other local, state, and federal partners to deliver improved topographic information for the Nation. The National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) is the surface water component of TNM and serves as a digital mapping and modeling resource. The Water Resources Community of Use (COU) is an expert user group, and feedback from this community helps USGS better connect and improve NHD for water-related research and management.
