Geospatial Science Steering Committee

The Geospatial Science Steering Committee (GSSC) functions in an advisory role to the DOE national laboratories, major facilities, and to headquarters and field office elements to actively promote effective utilization of GIS science and technology in the DOE complex. The major goals of the GSSC are to foster technical excellence and communication, to identify and advocate best business practices, to provide sound recommendations on policy and standards, and to coordinate between DOE and other federal and state agencies in areas of mutual interest.
