FGCS 2007 Work Plan


Federal Geodetic Control Subcommittee FY 07 Work Plan


Agency Name: NOAA/National Geodetic Survey Lead: Dave Zilkoski

Subcommittee: Federal Geodetic Control Subcommittee

Background: The Federal Geodetic Control Subcommittee (FGCS) of the Federal Geographic Data Committee exercises government-wide leadership in coordinating the planning and execution of geodetic surveys, in developing standards and specifications for these surveys, and in the exchange of geodetic survey data and technical information. FGCS coordinates Federal agencies' aspects of surveying that are governmental responsibilities. These responsibilities include standards setting, testing new geodetic instrumentation and operational systems, coordination of user agency requirements, and dissemination of government data to user agencies.

Objectives: Reconstitute FGCS
Justification/Legal Mandate:
OMB A-16, revised, states that DOC/NOAA is responsible for Geodetic Control. Geodetic control provides a common reference system for establishing coordinates for all geographic data. All NSDI framework data and users' applications data require geodetic control to accurately register spatial data. The National Spatial Reference System is the fundamental geodetic control for the United States.
Benefits: Coordination of government offices to address disaster preparedness and response

Scope of Work: Reconvene FGCS and develop current workplan
