Join us for a rare opportunity to attend a live training workshop on NHDPlus in Sacramento. All members of the NHDPlus Team from around the country plan to be on-hand for this workshop which is hosted by the California Water and Environmental Modeling Forum In cooperation with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Geological Survey.

NHDPlus 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). https://www.epa.gov/waterdata/nhdplus-national-hydrography-dataset-plus 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.
