Stewardship of the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD)

Information Stewardship is “the willingness to be accountable for a set of business information for the well-being of the larger organization by operating in service, rather than in control of those around us.”

Larry English, 1999

Data Governance: “The execution and enforcement of authority over the management of data assets and the performance of data functions.”

Robert Seiner, 2006

Objectives of NHD Stewardship

  • To create a nationwide partnership to produce and maintain a single source of hydrography data that is as useful and reliable as possible.
  • The community of users become the stewards of the data.
  • The USGS facilitates the stewardship process.
  • The stewards/users evolve the data to best meet their needs.
  • The USGS guides the evolution for national continuity.

the stewardship agreement
The Stewardship Agreement…..
  • Defines Stewardship for NHD – Purpose
  • Identifies participants at all levels
  • Clearly describes roles/responsibilities
  • Describes agreed-upon levels of service
  • Establishes timeframes for required actions
  • Defines NHD update process workflow
  • Defines and formalizes commitment to stewardship
  • Formalizes rules for who does what and when

stewardship concerns
Stewardship Concerns
  • Stewardship at this level never attempted before…..an experiment?
  • Stability of USGS NHD organization?
  • IT infrastructure and staffing at USGS needed to support NHD transactions?
  • Will state stewardship organizations fully engage this process? Funding?
  • Will the NHD database become further fragmented?
  • Is editing of the NHD too complex?
  • Will expectations of NHD users (eg. field level in BLM and USFS) be fully satisfied?
a strategy for nhd stewardship
A Strategy for NHD Stewardship...
  • Needs to fit within the context of NHD implementation within our agencies and also on Framework data development efforts within our state.
  • Even with adoption of NHD by our agencies, we still need to participate in interagency state partnerships and develop effective Stewardship Agreements with the USGS.
