ABSTRACT

1994 Plan for the National Spatial Data Infrastructure   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) is conceived to be an umbrella of policies, standards, and procedures under which organizations and technologies interact to foster more efficient use, management, and production of geospatial data. The NSDI requires and will facilitate cooperation and interaction among various levels of government, the private sector, and academia. The major components of the NSDI currently under development include a basic framework of digital geospatial data to act as a foundation for numerous other data collection activities; known quality thematic data sets of critical national importance; standards to facilitate data collection, documentation, access, and transfer, and the means to search, query, find, access, and use geospatial data."
