Detailed Description

Subject: Cooperate to create and provide a compatible and complementary, nationally consistent set of geospatial data and information for homeland security.
Date Signed: 07/29/2002

This Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) describes the partnership and responsibilities of the participating organizations to create and maintain geospatial information needed to support homeland security. The participating organizations include the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), Department of Defense; the United States Geological Survey (USGS), Department of the Interior; and the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC). This MOU describes how these organizations will cooperate to create and provide a compatible and complementary, nationally consistent set of geospatial data and information for homeland security. The intersection of USGS’s domestic mission for mapping, NIMA’s mission in support of national security objectives, and FGDC’s role in developing geospatial standards makes the USGS-NIMA-FGDC partnership critical to providing comprehensive geospatial information to the Federal, State, local and military organizations responsible for homeland security missions.
