“The Geospatial Multistate Archive and Preservation Partnership, GeoMAPP, is a collaborative effort addressing the preservation of at-risk and temporally significant digital geospatial content in state and local governments. The project is one of four initial state government partnerships funded by the Library of Congress’s National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program. The GeoMAPP partnership includes representatives from the geospatial and archive staffs of Kentucky, North Carolina, and Utah. GeoMAPP is exploring digital preservation issues in a number of topic areas, including business planning, data inventory and metadata, appraisal and access, content life cycle and transfer demonstration, and communications and industry outreach.”
