Geospatial Data Standards

The Geospatial Data Standards focus on improving the effectiveness of government through the more widespread use of geospatial information, which can often improve the quality and timeliness of government entities' decision-making across a wide variety of programmatic contexts.

The Geospatial Data Standards help improve the efficiency of government by making geospatial data more accessible, reliable, and less expensive to acquire through enhanced data-sharing and more effective management of investments.
