The National Geospatial Technical Operations Center (NGTOC) manages the development of U.S. Geological Survey’s national hydrography data: National Hydrography Dataset (NHD), Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD), and National Hydrography Dataset Plus High Resolution (NHDPlus HR) . Hydrography data management is highly dynamic and involves support for USGS and external stakeholders who are accessing data via services using desktop and web applications. NGTOC is continually innovating to provide responsive and efficient data management in this complex environment.
