The U.S. EPA Geospatial Quality Council (GQC) was formed in 1998 to provide Quality Assurance guidance for the development, use, and products of geospatial activities and research. The long-term goals of the GQC are expressed in a living document, currently the EPA GeospatialQuality Council Strategy Plan, FY-02, EPA/600/R-011063. The GQC is approaching the development of guidance and technical documents in the flow order of the Geospatial Information Lifecycle. The first two major products of the GQC are: a training course GIS for QA Professionals, which can be located at htti://www.epa.gov/RegionO6/ 6en/gis-ga/index.htm, and the EPA QA Guidance for Developing Geospatially-related Quality Assurance Projects,EPA/600/R-01/062. It is important to note that the GQC operates without a budget. A survey conducted jointly by the EPA Data Acquisition Branch (DAB) of the Office of Information Collection in the Office of Environmental Information and the GQC determined that the approach to GPS data collection and disposition throughout the EPA was inconsistent.GQC literature research determined that existing documents were technically outdated and did not address legal considerations, data disposition, and information management. This document is intended to fill that gap and be treated as a living document by its organization custodian.
