The mission of the Department is to create the conditions for economic growth and opportunity. The Secretary of Commerce serves as the voice of U.S. business within the President’s Cabinet.  The Strategic Plan is how the Department maintains its focus on achieving its Open for Business Agenda. Much of the data available from Commerce has a geospatial component to it, whether it is census data, economic data or environmental data. The DOC has a goal for making geospatial data more widely available, well managed, and more useful to Commerce, its partners, and the public.
