Another view is that NSDI is so broad and involves so many organisations and potential data applications, that no one can possibly ‘be in charge’, but that many individual actions can facilitate more data sharing. The type of action needed to evolve the NSDI has been likened to the Internet, entrepreneurial and distributed. Some consider the federal leadership to be narrow and have called for the creation of a broader ‘council’. Much of the funding to support the NSDI over the past six years has been federal (predominantly USGS budget).

2 Metadata conceptual model Ontology: at this level, the system manipulates a vocabulary restricted to the collection domain. This vocabulary will be used for querying the geodata repositories at a high level of abstraction. An example of a classification is the European CORINE land-cover classification which proposes a three-level hierarchical classification. Using this ontology a user can pose a query to retrieve objects relating to ‘coniferous forest’. If ‘coniferous forest’ is a concept present in the ontology, the system looks for the objects which represent this concept by using the pointers that associate that concept to the relevant object in the geospatial data repository.

One of the first tasks undertaken by the FGDC was development of a metadata standard. ‘Data about data’ were perceived to be useful to data sharing efforts. The metadata standard was worked through a variety of groups, including representatives of the library community who are familiar with other systems that index, catalog, and describe collections. The FGDC formally adopted the standard in 1994, and variations on it have spread world-wide. Several of the reports on the FGDC web page describe metadata efforts.
