NGAC Update

Posted By Robert Austin, Tuesday, August 19, 2014

The FGDC held a series of NSDI Leaders Forum meetings in 2013 as a part of the development of the 2014-2016 NSDI Strategic Plan.  The NSDI strategic plan was adopted by the FGDC Steering Committee and endorsed by the National Geospatial Advisory Committee in December 2013.  The Leaders Forum meetings were helpful in developing a shared national vision for the NSDI.  A follow-up NSDI Leaders Forum was convened via webinar on July 30, 2014 to discuss strategies for the continued engagement of the non-federal geospatial community in the development of the NSDI.  The work of the NGAC on the NSDI was presented to the Leaders.


In other news, the NGAC sub-committees have been preparing their 2014 reports for review by the NGAC as a whole during the September 23-24 meetings in Shepherdstown, WV.  The Address Sub-committee has been active in assembling case studies that document the value of a consolidated national address database.  The Privacy and Workforce Sub-committee have also been active since the last NGAC meeting and will be presenting the results of their work in September.

Stay tuned for more news as work progresses!
