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.
