The U.S. Interagency Elevation Inventory is an online tool that shows where high-accuracy topographic and bathymetric data exist for the United States and its territories. This resource is a comprehensive, nationwide listing of known high-accuracy topographic data, including lidar and IfSAR, and bathymetric data, including NOAA hydrographic surveys, multibeam data, and bathymetric lidar. The webinar explains how to use the tool and the inventory.
