 The draft agenda can be found here. Topics discussed today centered around the Geospatial Platform – What is it? Who is the intended audience? Who will manage it and be accountable for it (e.g., FGDC, GSA, OMB, other?) What is the business model? What are the incentives for participation? What are the technical standards? What are the licensing issues? What is the role of the private sector? Who can access what data? How will tribes’ data sensitivty concerns be addressed? How will it fit with existing initiatives like the National Map, GOS, GeoLOB, and NSDI? What is the geospatial federal segemented architecture management? What is the problem we are trying to solve? What is different this time around? How can we make this sustainable?
