Scope of Work
The scope of work for the Cadastral Theme will include the developing data profiles of the Cadastral Data Content Standard to support specific business needs and the documentation of best practices for collaborative data stewardship,
standardization (content and position) and publication. Information will be assembled through pilot projects as well as the research of success stories. In addition, the inventory of cadastral data in a GIS compatible form and compliance with standards/guidelines and profiles (such as availability of the data support wildland fire applications) will be updated. Technical assistance related to the implementation of the Cadastral Data Content Standard will be provided to states, counties, federal agencies and tribal governments per request. One meeting of the FGDC Subcommittee for Cadastral Data in planned for 2006, and membership will be updated as necessary. Meetings of the Western and Eastern Working
Groups may also be needed but are not currently planned. For updates to the Subcommittee work plan and to keep current on all activities and progress check the Subcommittee website at
Milestones, Schedule and Budget:
Schedules are difficult to determine because every action requires collaboration and partnership. The time and commitment of others outside of the BLM are difficult to predict. Therefore, schedules are left To Be Determined (TBD). Currently, the Subcommittee does not currently have a budget for 2006, which makes the budget difficult to determine.
