    Description

    Federal, State, and municipal government entities are increasingly depending on geospatial data for a myriad of purposes. This trend is expected to continue. Information sharing and interoperability are in line with the Federal Executive Order 12906 (Clinton, 1994) which calls for the establishment of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI). If other organizations voluntarily implement the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s quality planning approach--or a similar approach that embraces the same critical quality elements--for projects that include geospatial data, then an increased level of confidence will be achieved for information that is shared between organizations and countries.
