The group overseeing Geospatial One-Stop is seeking feedback on ways to better standardize data exchange among different geographic information systems.
The Federal Geographic Data Committee is drafting a framework of data standards called the National Spatial Data Infrastructure.
The committee is inviting comments on the framework for 90 days, beginning this month.
The seven geospatial data themes that framework will cover are: geodetic control, elevation, orthoimagery, hydrography, transportation, cadastral and governmental-unit boundaries.
FGDC is a 19-member committee composed of federal agencies and representatives from the Executive Office of the President. Geospatial One-Stop is a cross-agency e-government initiative to build a single portal to provide access to geospatial information from multiple agencies.
