NCIC was established within the USGS to provide a single-point contact source for cartographic-related information, including remotely sensed data. A computerized indexing system, the Aerial Photography Summary Record System (APSRS), shows all holding for Federal agencies, with the long range goal of including data acquired on the state and local levels and (eventually) by private industry.
The system directs the used to a particular agency which holds coverage over a particular unit area, based on the 7 1/2 minute USGS quadrangle system. The data will remain in the hands of the source agency.
