State Department - in collaboration with other relevant executive branch partners (ex. DHS, NGA, DoD, NASA) - should publish a comprehensive set of normalized, geo-coded data sets for all high-value data and information related to international (and domestic) disaster response. The data repository should be published as a set of data sets on Data.Gov. The data sets should contain contextual information to aid in their use by the disaster response community. The entire repository should be seen as a go-to resource for governmental, intergovernmental, and non-governmental disaster response organizations.
