Document Number: 2014-30117
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-12-24
Agency: Department of the Interior, U.s. Geological Survey
The Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) is conducting a public review of the draft Part 2 (revision), Digital Orthoimagery, of the FGDC Geographic Information Framework Data Standard. The primary purpose of Part 2, Digital Orthoimagery, of the FGDC Geographic Information Framework Data Content Standard is to support exchange of orthoimagery data. Part 2 seeks to establish a common baseline for the semantic content of orthoimagery databases for public agencies and private enterprises. It also seeks to decrease the costs and simplify the exchange of orthoimagery data among local, Tribal, State, and Federal users and producers. That, in turn, discourages duplicative data collection. Benefits of adopting Part 2 also include the long-term improvement of geospatial orthoimagery data within the community. The draft Part 2 (revision), Digital Orthoimagery, of the FGDC Geographic Information Framework Data Standard, may be downloaded from https://www.fgdc.gov/standards/projects/FGDC-standards-projec ts/ framework-data-standard/DraftRevisionPart2. Comments shall be submitted using the content template at http://www.fgdc.gov/standards/process/ standards-directives/template.doc. Instructions for completing the comment template are found in FGDC Standards Directive #2d, Standards Working Group Review Guidelines: Review Comment Template, http:// www.fgdc.gov/standards/process/standards-directives/directive -2d- standards-working-group-review-guidelines-review-comment-temp late. Comments that concern specific issues/changes/additions may result in changes in the draft Part 2 (revision), Digital Orthoimagery, of the FGDC Geographic Information Framework Data Standard. Reviewers may obtain information about how comments were addressed upon request. After FGDC endorsement of Part 2 (revision), Digital Orthoimagery, of the FGDC Geographic Information Framework Data Standard and a summary analysis of the changes will be made available to the public on the FGDC Web site, www.fgdc.gov.
