MAPPS has reaffirmed its
support for the concept of an Imagery for the Nation program, a position first
taken in 2006, and renewed its call for resolution of outstanding issues. In an
August 4 letter to Acting FGDC Chairman Karen Siderelis, MAPPS President Jeff
Lovin indicated that MAPPS and the National Geospatial Advisory Committee have
both sought decisions by the Federal Government so that IFTN can move forward
and be funded and implemented. The letter reflects discussions conducted by the
MAPPS Board of Directors on Cape Cod in June. To view the letter, click here.
