is an integrated suite of application-ready geospatial data sets that incorporate many of the best features of the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD), the National Elevation Dataset (NED), and the Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD).
The Workshop is intended for Geographic Information System (GIS) practitioners, hydrologic modelers, and water resource analysts. It will provide the opportunity to learn about NHDPlus basics and applications based upon the experience gained by the NHDPlus team and other users, since NHDPlus Version 2 was first released in late 2012. Techniques, tools, and data
enhancements will be among the many topics covered. Attendees will have the chance to interact and share their own lessons learned with others from a growing and diverse NHDPlus user community.
Workshop participants will need to bring a laptop computer with an active license of ArcGIS installed. The preferred version is 10
.2.2, Advanced license level with Spatial Analyst extension. Other versions no earlier than 10.1, sp2 will work but hands-on
instructions may differ slightly from those in the workshop materials. Before the workshop, participants will need to download
workshop materials. Directions for download will be provided to enrollees. Students should have a basic understanding of the
ArcMap/ArcCatalog interface and the use of Geoprocessing tools. Some familiarity with the NHD stream network and waterbodies is recommended.
