01 April 2005
Recall the USGS has realigned the geospatial programs for which the USGS has a leadership responsibility into a National Geospatial Programs Office (NGPO) to serve the needs and interests of the geospatial community. The emphasis of the NGPO will be to engage partners throughout the geospatial community in its planning and in ensuring that its unified portfolio meets the needs of those on the landscape.

The NGPO website is currently in "interim status" as the organization realignes. News and announcements posted monthly along with any other relevant items.

From the NGPO... By June 30, 2006, transform the processes of Government necessary to implement key components of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI)

  • Mission
