NOAA has asked each breakout group to make recommendations, and they will have about three hours for discussion.
Updated Nautical Charting & Consistency in Standards
- Demarcation of federally maintained channels on NOAA charts: inclusion of bathymetry inside federal channels
- Product pipeline issues with delayed updates on ENCs versus the RNCs and paper charts
- Transmittal of USACE survey data for special projects (not part of federally maintained channels) for NOAA charts
- Possible uses of crowd-sourced data for NOAA charts
- USACE use of NOAA’s navigation data to support debris removal
- User concerns with the cancellation of NOAA lithographic navigation charts
- Improvements for NOAA-certified print on demand charts
Integrated Ocean and Coastal Mapping (IOCM), Modeling & Resiliency
- What do coastal stakeholders need? In particular, which NOAA services, products, or data are most useful?
- How do local and state governments integrate NOAA spatial data collected for post-storm damage assessment?
- How might “crowd-sourced” data be useful for IOCM?
- How do users work with NOAA mapping & modeling data?
- Better data to improve SLOSH models?
- Can we improve NOAA and USACE collaboration on LiDAR surveys (pre-storm and post-storm) to address coastal resiliency?
Integrating Federal Emergency Response Efforts for Coastal Resiliency
- How can USACE, NOAA and USCG work better with states in preparedness, response and recovery?
- Most state and federal agencies must do more with less. What are the possibilities for sharing resources?
- What is the best way to collaborate on best practices, roles & responsibilities of agencies, and coordination of emergency response efforts?
- What is the most effective use of local/regional resources to address post-damage assessment?
- Are there better ways to prioritize NOAA's navigation response team surveys in non-emergency responses?
- What should be the role of federal agencies in preventive measures to reduce storm impact and damages?
