The U.S. Global Change Data and Information System Implementation Plan
documents the specific interagency agreements and arrangements established to
implement the GCDIS. This document builds on the U.S. Global Change Data and
Information Management Plan of 1992.

The GCDIS is the set of interagency data and information systems supplemented
by a minimal amount of crosscutting new infrastructure, and made
interoperable by use of standards, common approaches, technology sharing, and
data policy coordination.

The agencies involved in this implementation plan are:
Department of Commerce(DOC)
Department of Defense(DOD
Department of Energy(DOE)
Department of the Interior(DOI)
Environmental Protection Agency(EPA)
National Aeronautics and Space Administration(NASA)
National Science Foundation(NSF)
U.S. Department of Agriculture(USDA)

This document includes an Executive Summary, a list of acronyms and
abbreviations.
