Inter-agency Digital Imagery Working Group

The purpose of the Inter-Agency Digital Working Group is to identify requirements and issues relating to digital imagery acquisition, guidelines, and policies common to Federal, state, and local government agencies and to work together to find solutions.

Based on discussions with these agencies and their contractors, it became apparent they share common digital imagery needs and requirements. The USGS compiled an initial list of agencies involved in digital imagery acquisition. Many of these agencies were also represented on the National Digital Orthophoto Program (NDOP) Steering Committee. As a result, members of the existing NDOP technical subcommittee, and other agencies known to have digital image acquisition requirements, were contacted.

Participating agencies in the group include:
  • U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)
  • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
  • Bureau of Reclamation (BOR)
  • U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS)
  • Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
  • Farm Service Agency (FSA)
  • Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)
  • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE)
  • National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)
  • National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA)
  • U.S. Forest Service (USFS)
  • National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
  • Department of Transportation (DOT)
