The US Geological Survey’s National Map is a significant component of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure. It is created by combining data from Federal, State and local data partners. Managing differences in data schemas even among these controlled datasets has proven to be a challenge. A prototype based on the OpenStreetMap systems architecture is being evaluated within the context of this data integration process. A major advantage of leveraging the OSM architecture is the possibility of including citizen-sourced data in The National Map. This BoF session is for people and organizations who are interested in discussing how to manage large-scale spatial data integration problems, creating value-added systems, like a spatial data infrastructure, from uncontrolled data sources, like OpenStreetMap.
