State Department - - in collaboration with other relevant executive branch partners (ex. DHS, NGA, DoD, NASA) - should publish a data standard for disaster response data sets produced by third parties, including academic researchers, state and local governments, foreign governments, corporations, intergovernmental organizations, and non-governmental organizations. The data standard should enable disaster responders to quickly map third party data sets to US government provided data and information (hopefully hosted on Data.Gov).
