Priorities for The National Map: Imagery and Elevation Maps under ARRA (CFDA 15.817) include collecting elevation data over coastal areas most susceptible to storm and hurricane flooding, earthquake damage, and coastal erosion and also increasing coverage and availability of leaf-off high resolution orthoimagery. Typical awards are expected to range from $50,000 to $500,000.
Applications are due December 1, 2009.
