Alternate Title: Evaluation of Federal Geographic Data Committee's National Spatial Data Infrastructure Grants Program
"This report describes the results of a postal survey of organizations that applied for FGDC [Federal Geographic Data Committee] metadata clearinghouse grants over the period 1994- 1999. The main goal of the survey was to evaluate the effectiveness of FGDC's grants program. A further goal was to compare the characteristics of successful versus unsuccessful applicants, as well as non-applicants."
