The Red River Basin Mapping Initiative is a USD 5 million project implemented by the International Water Institute. The project will include the entire US portion of the Red River Basin in ND, MN and SD (~40,000 miles2).

Initially identified as a need by numerous local, state, and federal agencies after the 1997 flood, the essential high accuracy digital elevation data will have numerous applications including flood plain management, flood forecasting, and decision-support, precision farming, project alternatives analysis, and planning. With the exception of the urban areas along the Red River, most of the Red River Basin has elevation data that is over 35 years old with accuracies ranging from 6 - 23 feet.
