The NSDI encompasses policies, standards, and procedures for organizations to cooperatively produce and share geographic data. The 19 federal agencies that make up the FGDC are developing the NSDI in cooperation with organizations from state, local, and tribal governments, the academic community, and the private sector.
The NSDI is relevant to any agency that collects, produces, acquires, maintains, distributes, uses, or preserves analog or digital spatial data, including all Geographic Information System GIS activities, that are financed directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, by federal funds. Different federal agencies have lead responsibilities for the various spatial data themes.
For example, the USGS is responsible for all geologic mapping information and related geoscience spatial data; the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAA is responsible for offshore bathymetry and shoreline delineation. Lead agencies are required to populate each data theme, principally by developing partnership programs with states, tribes, academia, the private sector, and other federal agencies, and also by facilitating the development and implementation of FGDC standards for each theme.
Develop a strategy for advancing geographic information and related spatial data activities appropriate to their mission. Collect, maintain, disseminate, and preserve spatial information such that the resulting data, information, or products can be readily shared with other federal agencies and non-federal users.
Allocate agency resources to fulfill the responsibilities of effective spatial data collection, production, and stewardship. Coordinate and work in partnership with federal, state, tribal, and local government agencies, academia, and the private sector to efficiently and cost effectively collect, integrate, maintain, disseminate, and preserve spatial data, building on local data wherever possible.
Support emergency response activities requiring spatial data in accordance with provisions of the Stafford Act and other governing legislation. Search all sources, including the NSDI National Clearinghouse, to determine whether existing federal, state, local, or private data meet agency needs before expending funds for data collection.

Geospatial One-Stop was established to provide standards and models for geospatial framework data, an interactive index to geospatial data holdings at federal and non-federal levels, interaction among federal, state, and local authorities about existing and planned spatial data collections, and a single on-line access point to geospatial data.
The NSDI concept and the Geospatial One-Stop initiative are admirable and, in principle, go a long way toward addressing the frustrations expressed by the coastal zone user community.

This thesis describes the development of a geospatial reference framework for categorizing, organizing, validating, browsing, and representing survey camp topographic data.

However, implementation of the NSDI appears to have been, and continues to be, problematic for this community. Although there is a broad awareness of the principles of the NSDI among federal agencies, there seems to be highly variable commitment to concurring with its requirements by different agencies and a lack of incentive to fully implement its principles.
Perhaps a more reasonable approach would be to seek stronger involvement from the private sector by contracting key aspects of standards development—and the tools to facilitate adoption of standards see Box 5.
The framework can be used to build useful geospatial databases in diverse domains. *Corresponding author: Yolanda M Fernandez-Ordonez, Geomatics Laboratory, College of Postgraduates in Agricultural Sciences, Campus Montecillo, Texcoco.
