Inland Navigation: Multiple Workflows and Products centered in GIS
Track: National Mapping
Authors: Dan McBride

Operation and maintenance of the federal navigation channel requires constant surveying, with rapid turnaround of products being key to timely, effective response. Dredging activities impact many stakeholders, so mapping takes center stage in engaging and communicating potential impacts. Lastly, navigation charts have to integrate many sources to provide a single reference map for safe navigation.
