To date, the annual NSDI CAP awards have supported outreach and coordination, standards and metadata implementation, partnership development, State strategic and business plan development, map and geospatial data services deployment, geo-enablement of data, and NSDI training. All levels of government, academia, and private sector have participated in this national effort to implement the NSDI. Since 1994 CAP awards have played a substantial role in advancing and promoting the goals of the NSDI to both geospatial and non-geospatial communities.
In 2010, NSDI CAP awarded a total of 26 projects, totaling over to $1.1 million. One of the 2010 categories enables States in the development of financial business cases for collaborative spatial data infrastructure projects to gain a better understanding of the cost and more importantly the benefits of spatial data infrastructure projects.
