The Carbon Project | Alexandria, VA, USA


The Carbon Project today announced it was selected by the 2012 National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) Cooperative Agreement Program (CAP) to help develop open standards for parcel data exchange.

The effort will assist in the deployment of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) endorsed Cadastral Data Content Standard for the National Spatial Data Infrastructure. The objective of the project is to develop an implementation model for parcel data using open standards, including Geography Markup Language (GML) from the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC).

"There's growing interest in assembling 'seamless' statewide and federal parcel data sets that can be shared among government agencies, tribal interests, academia and the private sector," says Jeff Harrison, CEO of The Carbon Project. "Our goal is to make it easier for these organizations to share their parcel data using open standards for interoperability."

Project partners include Fairview Industries, The Carbon Project, representatives from state governments and the FGDC.

The NSDI CAP was established by the FGDC to help form partnerships to implement the NSDI. The United States NSDI includes the technology, policies, criteria, standards and people to promote geospatial information sharing throughout all levels of government, the private and non-profit sectors, and academia.
