Held in the Rayburn House Office Building and moderated by Kevin Gallagher, Associate Director of the U.S. Geological Survey, the standing room only crowd of nearly 100 Congressional staff and stakeholders also heard from the Chairman of the FEMA Technical Mapping Advisory Council (TMAC) John Dornan of North Carolina, and Roy Wright of FEMA’s Deputy Associate Administrator for Insurance and Mitigation. Palatiello discussed the partnership between USGS and its Federal, state and local government partners as well as the private sector and other interested stakeholders, and highlighted the importance of the surveying profession in providing accurate elevation data, mainly through the use of LiDAR technology, and the role of 3DEP and other surveying, mapping and geospatial in FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program. more
