Introduction to the Defense Installations Spatial Data Infrastructure (DISDI)
"To provide authoritative, cost-effective defense installation geospatial information and services for fact-based decision making across the DoD spectrum of operations."
DISDI is the geospatial oversight program responsible for acquiring, managing, and sharing spatial information supporting I&E’s business activities to meet defense, federal, and national goals - to include oversight of the SDSFIE.
The Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Installations and Environment) (I&E) group formed the Defense Installations Spatial Data Infrastructure (DISDI) program to serve as the central source for organizing and leveraging the Department’s extensive geospatial portfolio for its installations.
Comprised of people, policies, and practices, DISDI offers a new approach for integrating geospatial efforts across the Defense facilities to better support DoD’s strategic goals and the DoD Business Enterprise Architecture. DISDI develops geospatial standards and policy to enable sharing and interoperability of geospatial data at all levels of installation management, while ensuring that I&E’s information infrastructure is aligned with DoD’s net-centric strategies.
DISDI supports the Military Services and Defense Agencies by establishing guidance to effectively apply installation visualization capabilities in a collaborative and coordinated manner.DISDI’s goal is to geo-enable I&E business mission areas and defense business transformation using the Global Information Grid concept.1 A mission is geo-enabled when it leverages geospatial capabilities at the installation level to help visualize and enhance data—transforming it into actionable information.
In an effort to better acquaint users with the SDSFIE that can be used to build standardized data models, the Defense Installation Spatial Data Infrastructure (DISDI) Group has launched an updated website with new workflows that allow a user to engage with the site and meet business needs.
The SDSFIE continues to evolve. Check out "What's Coming" for a preview of improvements that the group is working on.
