About INCITS L1
INCITS Technical Committee L1, Geographic information systems (INCITS L1 for short), is the means by which the U.S. participates in national and international voluntary consensus standardization activities in geographic information.
INCITS L1 is one of nearly 40 technical committees overseen by INCITS, the InterNational Committee for Information Technical Standards. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has accredited INCITS to develop standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT). ANSI is a non-governmental organization that describes itself as the “voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system.” ANSI is the U.S. member body of ISO, the International Organization for Standardization. INCITS L1 serves as the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to ISO Technical Committee 211, Geographic information/Geomatics.
