ABSTRACT

Report of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure Measures of Progress Workshop   [open pdf - 68KB]

"This workshop was convened by the FGDC to consider the question "How do we know how we are doing at building the NSDI?" Participants represented diverse perspectives on GIS and NSDI. The NSDI was understood as a broad-based effort to improve data sharing and use. The purpose of NSDI is to get usable geospatial data into the hands of citizens and decision makers. Participants in the engaging, productive workshop clarified the benefits of using GIS and NSDI and examined critical issues relevant to measurement, promotion, and spread of NSDI. Based on their own experience, they identified the indicators of success implicit in actual data-sharing practice. They then developed those indicators into drafts of three approaches to measuring progress in building the NSDI."
