The EPA Geospatial Quality Council (GQC), previously known as the EPA GIS-QA Team-EPA/600R-00/009, was created to fill the gap between the EPA Quality Assurance (QA) and Geospatial communities. All EPA Offices and Regions were invited to participate. Currently, the EPA Geospatial Quality Council consists of members from the EPA Regional Offices; the Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA); the Office of Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances (OPPTS); the Office of Water (OW); the new Office of Environmental Information (OEI); and the Office of Research and Development (ORD). The GQC was established by the Environmental Sciences Division of ORD's National Exposure Research Laboratory, but operates independent of any EPA Region or Program Office. The EPA GQC Strategy Plan is a product of the EPA GQC. It builds upon the framework presented at various conference during FY99 and was the first attempt to chart a course for the development of the Agency's Geospatial-QA activities. This Strategy Plan defines the mission of GQC throughout EPA, and articulates the strategic vision of the EPA GQC. It identifies the short- and long-term goals, objectives, and activities necessary to accomplish the mission defined by the vision. As the GQC develops, this Strategy Plan will change to adapt to new technology and changing requirements.
