Narrative: The National Geospatial Platform (www.geoplatform.gov) is under active development.  Today, the tools and capabilities available through the Platform include a shared national data catalog (in partnership with Data.gov) and a handful of new “Communities” where partners from across all levels of government, the NGO community and the private sector can work together to build and share common maps and applications.  In the coming months, the capabilities of the Platform will be expanded to include shared cloud data and application hosting capabilities, and much more.  This session will focus on highlighting the current and near term capabilities of the Platform, and will feature a discussion on how you can get involved and benefit from this shared technology initiative.
