Project: Implement a fluid hydrography names update processes
Issue: Current process for submitting GNIS name modifications and additions is
cumbersome. GNIS names must be approved and posted to GNIS database prior to GNIS
name being added to NHD feature which drastically lengthens the update process.
Solution: Integrate GNIS Names into vector layers where Name and extent is represented
by the geometry of the NHD feature.
Process: User is allowed to add name to existing NHD feature(s) or modify name on
existing NHD feature(s) and the allowed to load updates to database. GNIS names are
verified in the NHD database and approved or rejected. If a GNIS name is rejected, the
GNIS name will be removed from NHD features through an automated process.
