Since its inception in 2008, the NGAC has developed recommendations on several key topics, including provided transition recommendations, economic recovery, Imagery for the Nation, and National Land Parcel Data. The committee also published a white paper on the “changing landscape” of geospatial technology. This session will provide an overview of the NGAC’s planned activities in 2010, including development of a National Geospatial Policy, support for the Administration’s place-based management initiatives, National Geospatial Forums, opportunities to enhance geospatial partnerships, and reviews of emerging technologies.
