This Power Point presentation was presented at an Emergency Services Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado November 18, 2003. It provides an overview of FGDC (Federal Geographic Data Committee) standards, standards organizations, and the purpose of standards. It also provides a description of Geospatial One-Stop, which accelerates implementation of the NSDI (National Spatial Data Infrastructure), making geospatial information access easier, faster, and cheaper for all levels of government and public. Each section is followed by a short discussion topic involving the input of first responders.
