Subject: [NDSA-ALL] GIS Day - Geospatial Data Preservation

The celebration of GIS Day is an ideal time to reflect on the importance of preserving geospatial data. Those interested in finding information and tools on how to preserve and manage geospatial data and related resources will be pleased to know about the recently-released Geospatial Data Preservation Resource Center, accessible at the http://geopreservation.org URL.

The web site enables discovery of resources for education and training, tools and software, and information on policies and benefits of geospatial data preservation. It also contains quick links for data managers, system developers, and researchers. Visitors to the web site can search or browse for online or downloadable applications, articles, reports, standards, and tutorials about the preservation and stewardship of data, maps, and related materials that contain geospatial information. Resources on the web site also are organized within several topics relevant to digital data stewardship, including appraisal and selection, digitized maps, GIS, satellite imagery, and virtual environments. The development and management of the Geospatial Data Preservation Resource Center web site is sponsored by the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) of the Library of Congress.

Please excuse any duplication of this message.

Thanks,

Bob Downs
