9:00 - 12:00 Introduction to the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD).

The National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) is the surface-water component of The National Map. The NHD is a comprehensive set of digital spatial data that represents the surface water of the United States using common features such as lakes, ponds, streams, rivers, canals, stream gauges, and dams. This training will offer an overview of NHD concepts and contents, as well as use cases showing how the network flow and tracing components extend the benefits of the NHD.
