Communities supports user "communities"—interactive, topically-focused web portals that are managed and used collaboratively by specific communities with similar interests. These portals can provide a shared workspace for communities dedicated to the work of individual agencies, OMB Circular A–16 data themes, and cross-cutting program areas.

Community users can share seminal web content; publish geospatial data and services; build and share maps, applications, and tools; discover relevant geospatial data, tools, and services for community use; and share best practices, tips, and lessons-learned from their efforts.
