These standards, developed through the Geospatial One-Stop e-Government initiative, are available for public review beginning in July 2004.

The Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) invites comments from all interested parties on the draft framework data standards developed through the Geospatial One-Stop e-Government initiative. The public review period will begin in July 2004 and will last 90 days.

These standards establish common requirements to facilitate data exchange for seven themes of geospatial data fundamental to many different Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications. The seven geospatial data themes are: geodetic control, elevation, orthoimagery, hydrography, transportation, cadastral, and governmental unit boundaries. For more information on participating in the review of the draft framework data standards, go to www.fgdc.gov.

The 19 federal agencies that make up the FGDC are developing the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) in cooperation with organizations from State, local and tribal governments, the academic community, and the private sector. The NSDI encompasses the policies, standards, and procedures for organizations to cooperatively produce and share geographic data. More information on the FGDC and the NSDI is available at www.fgdc.gov.
