Louisiana Spatial Data Infrastructure

16 Framework Layers of the LSDI

On December 17, 2009 the LGISC adopted the Louisiana Spatial Data Infrastructure (LSDI) which was the result of seven years work by the Digital Data Committee. The LSDI is a framework for organizing geospatial data and is comprised of layers identified by the Federal Geographic Data Committee, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the State of Louisiana.

In 2018, the Digital Data Committee was recreated and began working to further develop the Louisiana Spatial Data Infrastructure. The LSDI consists of five components, including:

  • Feature classes within each framework theme
  • Data custodian(s)
  • Methods used to create data
  • Data schema for each feature class
  • Data stewardship
