Create a national spatial data infrastructure nsdi
Create a National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) ………

To encourage the collection, processing, archiving, integration, and sharing of geospatial data and information using common standards and interoperable systems and techniques

….. and accessible via the web


Nsdi in the united states what is the fgdc
NSDI In the United States ………What is the FGDC?
