Spatial Climate Subcommittee

Past Subcommittee This subcommittee's activities have ended.

The Spatial Climate Subcommittee (SCS) is established under the auspices of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) to promote the development and distribution of spatial climate data.  The SCS will help insure the coordination of spatial climate dataset development among public and private developers, and will serve as a focal point for all spatial climate data activities.  It will foster enhanced communication between developers and users of spatial climate data, as well as encourage dialogue regarding prioritization of research and development efforts.  The SCS will seek to establish standards and protocols for spatial climate data, and will promote FGDC and National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) standards in data and metadata within the spatial climate community.
