The National Geospatial Platform 

Thursday, January 30
3:00 PM (EST)
Registration Fee: $25 MAPPS members*/ $30 Non-Members



Presenter: Dr. Jerry Johnston, Geospatial Information Officer, US Department of the Interior

 
Webinar Objective: The National Geospatial Platform (www.geoplatform.gov) is under active development.  Today, the tools and capabilities available through the Platform include a shared national data catalog (in partnership with Data.gov) and a handful of new "Communities” where partners from across all levels of government, the NGO community and the private sector can work together to build and share common maps and applications.  In the coming months, the capabilities of the Platform will be expanded to include shared cloud data and application hosting capabilities, and much more.  
 
A new marketplace was recently added allowing Federal agencies to post upcoming geospatial procurements. In the coming months, the capabilities of the Platform may be expanded to include the ability for private sector contractors to provide information on current services offered and strategic areas for additional procurement opportunities. The USGS has several acquisition plans on the platform.  Dr. Johnston will discuss these in his briefing.  This is a chance to learn about contracts long before they are in Federal Business Opportunities (FedBiz Opps). While the USGS is the first to post an acquisition plan, many other agencies will be doing the same. This is your chance to learn how to use this tool for your firm's market research/market intelligence.
