Geospatial Subcommittee
NWCG Standards for Geospatial Operations, PMS 936

These standards ensure consistency in the delivery of GIS products and services.  They must be adhered to for incident Geographic Information System Specialist (GISS) activities. They focus on the work performed by a GISS to fulfill the GIS needs of the Planning Section of the Incident Management Team and include guidelines, procedures, processes, best practices, specifications, techniques, and methods. Some components of these standards may change more frequently, like the National Incident Feature Services, or be fairly static like the File Naming conventions. A key resource for a GISS is the NWCG GISS Workflow, PMS 936-1.

National Wildfire Coordinating Group
Our mission is to provide national leadership to enable interoperable wildland fire operations among federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners.  NWCG operations standards are interagency by design; they are developed with the intent of universal adoption by the member agencies.  However, the decision to adopt and utilize them is made independently by the individual member agencies and communicated through their respective directives systems.
