Enterprise Geospatial Data Management

1. PURPOSE

This Departmental Regulation (DR) establishes the policy for Enterprise Geospatial Data Management (EGDM) in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Facilitated by the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO), this DR defines the strategic direction necessary to optimize the management of the USDA geospatial data as departmental enterprise assets. The USDA EGDM policy presents elements of an enterprise geospatial data management framework, which will help to achieve the USDA public service goals as identified by a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report, GAO-15-193, and to begin the process of internal geospatial data sharing in the USDA.
