 Federal Interagency Committee Minimize

The North Carolina Federal Interagency Committee (FIC) was created to coordinate data activities within North Carolina between Federal agencies and other geographic data users and distributors represented on the GICC.

Federal agencies, together with State and Local governmental units, contribute to GIS partnerships that can only be fully and practically utilized with a statewide focus and cooperative effort. The National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) provides guidelines for acquiring, processing, storing, distributing and increasing the utilization of geographic data. To maximize benefits and minimize redundancy of data activities, procedures for distribution, standards, funding and data collection should involve coordination with Federal agencies operating in the state.

All federal employees are welcome to participate in the FIC, whether or not they currently use geographic information systems in their workplace. To sign up for the FIC list serv (news, announcements, peer-to-peer problem solving), click here.  For tips on using this list serv, click here.

Federal Land Ownership Dataset

The NC Geographic Information Coordinating Council (GICC) tasked the Federal Interagency Committee (FIC) with developing a plan and set of recommendations for updating the federal land ownership dataset for North Carolina. A FIC committee - Tom Colson, Chair, National Park Service; Mark Endries, US Fish & Wildlife Service; and Susan Pulsipher, Contractor to the US Army - conducted a thorough review of federal land ownership in North Carolina and recommended a solution for an updated federal land ownership dataset.

See the Federal Land Ownership Report, dated May 29, 2013.

In response to FIC’s recommendations, CGIA and the Natural Heritage Program (NHP) in the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources developed a collaborative work flow to take advantage of NHP’s role as state steward for the national Protected Areas Database (PAD) and NHP’s inclusion of information from the GAP Analysis program. The PAD includes most of the federal lands in North Carolina, creating opportunities to streamline data maintenance for NHP, PAD, and the FIC’s compilation of federal land. The resulting dataset, “Federal Lands in North Carolina” is now available in the NC OneMap Geospatial Portal for discovery, access, and download.

The current Chair is Linda Rimer (919.541.0785).
Staff support is provided by Tim Johnson (919.754.6588)
The National Geospatial Program liaison to North Carolina is Gary Merrill (803.750.6124)
