Geographic referencing adds critical context to data. It helps users quickly and easily determine whether a dataset pertains to their specific area of interest, and in the event that it does, empowers users by immediately allowing them to visualize that data, perhaps coupled with addtional datasets for informing context. Both Geospatial One Stop and Data.gov are citizen centric initiatives. Migrating and consolidating the two programs would both energize and maximize any place based analyical capability the nation could leverage in the future.
