National Geospatial Programs Office:
A Plan for Action
In a strategic move to consolidate national geospatial programs for which it has a leadership role, the USGS Director created the National Geospatial Programs Office (NGPO), organizationally housed in the Geospatial Information Office (GIO), and under the authority and accountability of the Associate Director for Geospatial Information. With the creation of the NGPO, the essential components to implement the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) will be managed as a unified portfolio that benefits the entire geospatial community. The NGPO will engage partners in planning to ensure that their needs are met.
