The VA Spatial Data Strategy aims to enhance the use of spatial data within the Department of Veterans Affairs to improve services for Veterans. It aligns with the VA Enterprise Data Strategy and the National Spatial Data Infrastructure’s Strategic Plan.

The Spatial Data Strategy outlines five goals: enhancing spatial data stewardship, integrating spatial data analytics and technology, defining GIS architecture, fostering a federated spatial workforce, and establishing spatial governance. These goals support the Geospatial Data Act of 2018 requirements.

The strategy emphasizes the importance of high-quality spatial data, effective data sharing, and collaboration to support decision-making and enhance VA services for the Veteran population. It also highlights the need for a coordinated approach to manage spatial data and analytics, ensuring data integrity, privacy, and national security.
