Draft NSDI Strategic Framework Available for Review and Feedback

The Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) is seeking feedback on the draft strategic framework for the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI).  This draft framework has been developed with inputs from multiple sources. These inputs have included forums for leaders of key geospatial organizations, workshops for Federal leaders, sessions at geospatial professional conferences, and public meetings of the FGDC Coordination Group, the FGDC Steering Committee, and the National Geospatial Advisory Committee. The ideas and suggestions we have received from partners have been instrumental in shaping this document.  Following the feedback opportunity, a revised version of the framework will be prepared for final review by the FGDC Steering Committee.  Following completion of the high-level strategic framework, the FGDC will develop a final strategic plan and implementation approach in 2017. 

DATES:  Feedback can be submitted  to nsdicomments@fgdc.gov by Wednesday, November 23, 2016.
