Share your Success Story
FGDC and Geospatial One-Stop are gathering examples of how geospatial information has made a difference in providing government services. We would like to highlight your organizations in our upcoming publications and our website.
Send us your favorite geospatial information success stories and how the use of geospatial best practices such as effective partnerships, common standards and data sharing contributed to your success. We'll use the stories to spread the word about the benefits of geospatial information and its contribution to the NSDI and development of a national geospatial information strategy.
Suggested topic areas include (but feel free to add your own):
- Reducing crime
- Enhancing public safety
- Managing growth
- Preparing for emergencies
- Encouraging economic development
- Protecting the environment
Here is a template for you to use. (Let us know if you would like to adapt it):
- Issue – what was the problem?
- Action- what you did
- Results – how it made a difference
- Graphics – give us a real life photo illustrating what it's about
- Map/Data – give us a map or graphic data file from the project
