GEA Pilot

The Geospatial Enterprise Architecture (GEA) Profile Pilot is intended to validate the methodologies outlined in the FEA Geospatial Profile.

The Architecture Pilot will identify geospatial elements from the Performance, Business, Data, Services, and Technology Reference Models as well as a Solution Architecture based on the FEA Geospatial Profile. The business requirements driving the Architecture Pilot will be those of multiple agencies in the mission-specific application of access to OMB Circular A-16 data via services within the NSDI. To be more specific, each adopted experiment element will be to implement a standards-based solution that uses the NSDI to publish, discover, and access at least a portion of its required data inputs.

The primary site for information on the pilot project is here. This site is initially being used as a repository for use cases. For a detailed description of the fields in the use case submission form, download the Word document atttached to this page below.
