Users/Historical Data Working Group

The Users/Historical Data Working Group is established under the auspices of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) to promote and coordinate activities among Federal agencies who are primarily users of, not generators of geospatial data. The intent is to provide a vehicle for those agencies who may not have a significant Geospatial Infrastructure to collectively share their experiences and needs with the larger Geospatial community. It is recognized that topic areas of interest to the Data Working Group, in many instances, will be of importance to the entire community, e.g. promoting an awareness of the historical dimension of geospatial data. A part of the duties of the Users/Historical Data Working Group is established to promote an awareness among Federal agencies of the historical dimension to geospatial data; to facilitate the long-term retention, storage, preservation and accessibility of selected geospatial data; and to establish a mechanism for the coordinated development, use, sharing, and dissemination of historically valuable geospatial data which have been financed in whole or part by Federal funds.

The Users/Historical Data Working Group meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 11:00 a.m. EASTERN via conference call. The group welcomes Federal and non-Federal participants who are interested in the long-term stewardship of geospatial data.
