Parcel Summit

Posted By MAPPS, Wednesday, May 25, 2016

MAPPS, in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Homeland Infrastructure Foundation - Level Data (HIFLD) Subcommittee of the Federal Geographic Data Committee, is hosting a National Parcel Data Summit.

If you have a business or professional interest in a National Parcel System, your participation is invited.

This one-day event will be held on Friday, June 17 at USGS headquarters in Reston, VA.

This meeting will focus on how to successfully build a national-level parcel database in the context of 1) the current state of parcel data holdings and 2) the need for a Federal champion to ensure new progress. We will hold a series of facilitated discussions to generate an in-depth understanding of parcel data needs, requirements, and access challenges. We look forward to your participation!  In particular, we will look at needs, current conditions, a lessons-learned review of past efforts, and development of next steps and an action plan to make a National Parcel System a reality.
