Federal Geographic Data Committee

Federal Geographic Data Committee


Federal agencies and their partners collect and manage large amounts of place-based (geospatial) data – but it is often not easily found when needed, and sometimes data is collected or purchased multiple times. In short, the best government data is not always organized and managed efficiently to support decision making in a timely and cost effective manner. The Geospatial Platform is designed to provide that service and capability.

The Geospatial Platform is an Internet-based capability providing shared and trusted geospatial data, services, and applications for use by the public and by government agencies and partners to meet their mission needs. The Geospatial Platform was developed by the member agencies of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) through collaboration with partners and stakeholders. The target audience for the Geoplatform includes: Federal agencies, State, local, and Tribal governments, private sector, academia, non-governmental organizations, and the general public.
