Geospatial Data Quality Assurance Project Plan

Published: July 31, 2007

GIS activities undertaken at the Chesapeake Bay Program Office follow the directives outlined in the National Geospatial Data Policy (NGDP). The NGDP establishes principles, responsibilities, and requirements for collecting and managing geospatial data used by Federal environmental programs and projects within the jurisdiction of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This Policy also establishes the requirement of collecting and managing geospatial metadata describing the Agency?s geospatial assets to underscore EPA?s commitment to data sharing, promoting secondary data use, and supporting the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI). The work completed by the GIS Team follows the guidelines set forth by the Quality Management Plan for the Chesapeake Bay Program Office, the Chesapeake Bay Program Guidance for Data Management , the National Geospatial Data Policy , the draft National Geospatial Data Policy Implementation Guidance, and the Federal Geographic Data Committee Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata. Large projects require development of a comprehensive CBP Data Center Project Plan. The Chesapeake Bay Program Geospatial Data Quality Assurance Project Plan describes the methods and standards for conducting geospatial data analysis projects.
