Organization of the NDOP
The NDOP is composed of a Steering Committee and two subgroups: the Project Management Subgroup and the Technical Management Subgroup.
Steering Committee: The Steering Committee provides leadership and program oversight. It is responsible for establishing the vision, direction, and goals of the program, and oversees the two subcommittees. Leadership of the Steering Committee alternates among the member agencies on an annual rotation.
Project Management Subgroup: The Project Management Subgroup is responsible for coordinating requirements among the NDOP members and partners, developing and monitoring production and funding plans, and addressing specific program issues.
Technical Management Subgroup: The Technical Management Subgroup addresses technical issues related to the research, production, distribution, and application of digital orthophotos, product specifications, and standards.
