National Geospatial Program Partnerships
The National Geospatial Program Partnership Network cultivates and maintains long-term relationships with partners and develops agreements for The National Map, Geospatial One Stop, National Atlas and other initiatives that advance the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) and support USGS science. Partnerships are the foundation of the National Geospatial Program because they leverage funding across organizations to provide significant cost savings; reduce redundancy in geospatial data acquisition and stewardship; and ensure availability of common base data to a broad range of users and applications.
The National Geospatial Program Partnership Network is comprised of the following components:
Partnerships and External Coordination provides strategic direction and oversight to the range of National Geospatial Program partnership activities and oversees communications, outreach and external coordination for the program.
Federal Geospatial Liaisons work with other Federal agencies to develop and manage partnerships at the national and programmatic level to support development and use of National Geospatial Program products and services and the NSDI.
USGS Geospatial Liaisons have been established for each State to engage and support State, local, Tribal, regional, Federal and other partners in improving timeliness, quality and accessibility of geospatial data for the community, The National Map and the NSDI. Liaisons are managed as three regional teams: Central Region, Eastern Region, and Western Region.
