US National Geospatial Advisory Committee Picked

The US Secretary of the Interior announced today he has named 28 people to serve on the National Geospatial Advisory Committee. This is a new committee for the Department of the Interior whose mandate is to serve in an advisory role on Federal geospatial programs. The Committee meets three to four times a year and they’re open to the public for comment. So if you’re a US citizen and wish to give some input to Federal geospatial programs in the US, the committee will serve as your outlet. The members seem to come from all players in the geospatial community, including federal, state, and local governments, non-profits, academics, and the private sector. The announcement just came out today, so I can’t seem to find a link on the Dept. of the Interior’s website.

UPDATE: One of the people in our comments was helpful enough to provide a PDF link to the full announcement, including the list of names. Thanks aaronr!
