Geo Standards

The geodata.gov site has a useful selection of links to FGDC (Federal Geographic Data Committee) standards, data models, and tools.
The FGDC is currently undertaking an open data standards development process. The purpose of the development of Framework Data Standards is to define the common features, attributes and relationships for each Framework Theme that meet the intersections of interests necessary to effectively share data. The purpose of geospatial standards is to facilitate data sharing and increase interoperability among automated geospatial information systems.
