Best Practices for Local Government Geospatial Programs from NGAC

The National Geospatial Advisory Committee (NGAC) has issued a two-page best practices paper that lists four steps to building a successful local government GIS program:
  1. Establish a geospatial program (including recommendations on planning and governance)
  2. Develop and maintain data as an asset
  3. Take an enterprise approach
  4. Share with the public
This might serve as a good resource to assess your local government program and to justify its role or advocate its expansion.
