USGS website updated with FY2015 BAA Proposed Body of Work, including map of awarded projects --

"The US Geological Survey National Geospatial Program is pleased to announce the first round of awards resulting from the USGS Broad Area Announcement (BAA) for the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP), initially issued on July 18, 2014. (Solicitation Number: G14PS00574). The BAA is a publicly accessible process to develop partnerships for the collection of lidar and derived elevation data for 3DEP. 3DEP presents a unique opportunity for collaboration between all levels of government, to leverage the services and expertise of private sector mapping firms that acquire the data, and to create jobs now and in the future."
