USGS Geospatial Liaison Network

The USGS Geospatial Liaison Network consists of NGP geospatial liaisons (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader) housed in NSDI Partnership Offices across the nation. These liaisons and offices perform numerous partnership related functions in support of the NSDI, The National Map and Geospatial One Stop. They represent and coordinate NGP initiatives in state, local, and other federal agencies, cultivate and maintain long-term relationships, and develop partnerships and supporting agreements. The USGS Geospatial Liaison Network is the "local face" of the USGS NSDI and NGP programs.
