The GCDIS Implementation 1995 consists of two volumes: v.I: Interagency
Implementation; v.2: Agency Implementation. Both implementations were drafted
in mid-1995.

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 the implementation plan are:

Department of Commerce(DOC)
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)
