Linking data to the wider hydrographic network is a key component of making water data more discoverable and more easily accessible. Dave Blodgett, a hydro informatics specialist at USGS, will describe how the Hydro Network-Linked Data Index (NLDI) connects data to the National Hydrography Dataset so that relationships between single monitoring locations and the broader water world can be revealed.
