Components of the NSDI

Since its inception, FGDC has worked to implement the six basic building blocks, or common elements, of the NSDI: metadata, clearinghouse, standards, framework, geospatial data, and partnerships. Each of these components serves as a cornerstone in establishing consistency and structure when it comes to documenting spatial data for everyday applications, as well as in building a distributed network of producers and users that facilitate data sharing.
