Partial government shutdown impacts geospatial community

October 4th, 2013 by Susan Smith

The effects of the partial government shutdown already can be felt in the geospatial community. With no agreement from Congress on a government funding bill, the shutdown not only affected federal employees but also contractors that work for government agencies. The shutdown impacts almost all federal agencies, including those with strong ties to the geospatial community such as the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Geological Survey and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

In addition, USGIF, sponsors of GEOINT 2013, will continue with the program as planned. They will continue to plan for alternative programming for the event should the shutdown extend through the Symposium, limiting the ability of some of the government speakers to attend.
