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 StatesWhat is the FGDC?

  • Staff support to the Secretary of the Interior to manage and facilitate the NSDI

Standards

STANDARDS

  • Data standards

  • Metadata standards

    • Metadata standards out for national (ANSI) review

    • Ultimately to the ISO

  • System interoperability specifications and standards

    • Industry – Open GIS Consortium (OGC)


Standards1

STANDARDS

  • FGDC standards

    • Largely metadata

  • Data standards

    • Data steward’s responsibility

    • Strongly encouraged by FGDC

  • National standards

    • American National Standards Institute (ANSI)

  • International Standards Organization (ISO)


The federal geographic data committee what s new

The Federal Geographic DataCommittee …. what’s new?

  • Major focus within the Federal Government

  • An effort to reach into states and communities

  • Need a sustained effort to drive the concept and application to the states and local governments

  • …to keep the pressure on
