  • Coalition of Geospatial Organizers (COGO) Announces the Release of the Report Card on the U.S. National Spatial Data Infrastructure
    Honorable Tom D Rust and The Honorable Robert T Welch COGO initiated this effort in 2009 by securing the commitment of the expert panel members who worked on a volunteer basis to produce this report As stated in the report s foreword COGO recognizes the individual contributions of all Federal state regional tribal and local government agencies that have worked in concert with the private and academic sectors to develop the National Spatial Data Infrastructure NSDI as it exists today This work has spanned entire careers and COGO applauds the sincerity of their efforts and the value of their contributions ASPRS is a member organization of COGO with an overall representation of approximately 170 000 individual geospatial practitioners Together the coalition is delivering this assessment to help Congress the Administration Federal agency executives and others understand the importance of geospatial data to the nation as well as shortcomings of the NSDI Michael Vanhook COGO Chairman stated Federal agencies have worked for many years to improve their geospatial programs but the COGO member organizations believe that the national data sets and delivery systems the NSDI generally need improvement It is time for the Federal government to more effectively engage the entire stakeholder community to ensure that America has the highest quality geospatial infrastructure Doing so will allow us to more efficiently and effectively deal with society s needs and to reduce duplication of effort The Report Card on the U S National Spatial Data Infrastructure NSDI may be found here www cogo pro uploads COGO Report Card on NSDI pdf This release was adapted from the original by Michael A Vanhook GISP sent on February 9 2015 COGO A coalition of 13 national professional societies trade associations and membership organizations in the geospatial field COGO represents more than 170 000 individual
