Agenda topics include a report on the peer exchange “Partnerships for Environmental Spatial Information for Transportation”, an update from the US Census Bureau on the Master Address File and TIGER Modernization Project, and a technical briefing on “Implementation Considerations Related to Datum and Projection Standards”.  Also, as part of our commitment to the implementation of The National Map there will be a status briefing on that topic.  Other status and update items will be included as well as a site round table to hear what others are working on. 


Please make time on your busy schedules for the opportunity to network with peers and to provide input and feedback on the topics.
