NGGDPP Implementation Plan

In 2006, a USGS report titled “Implementation Plan for the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program” was produced to implement the Program per the directives listed in Section 351 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 via the Secretary of the Interior, through the Director of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The Association of American State Geologists, the USGS National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program Federal Advisory Committee (NCGMP-FAC), and the Data Preservation Working Group of the NCGMP-FAC helped to produce the guidance document.
