10 10.0, 10.1 or 10.2 ArcGIS version status, USFS – ArcGIS 10.1 – Andy WilsonNPS – ArcGIS 10.1 – Dave HammondFWS – ArcGIS 10 (10.1) Cameron TongierBLM – ArcGIS 10 (10.1) – Katy HipkeTribes & BIA – ArcGIS 10 (10.1) – Joe KafkaBIA is in transition from ArcGIS 9 to version 10Approximately 70% of the tribes in the west have switched to version 10
11 States ArcGIS Status Curt Stripling, Texas 10 –WI, KY, TX, LA, AL, NC, VA, FL, SC9.3.1 – GA, OK, MI, OH, VA, MS9.3 – MN9.2 – ARBe prepared with install media for AND 10.Flexibility/Adaptability will be key. Use contract computers where appropriate.
12 John Watermolen, Nevada All western states are planning on using ArcGIS 10.x in 2014.OR, NV, AK,CA – 10.2ID, WA, MT, UT – 10.1AZ – 10.1 and 10.2HI – 10.0NM – 10.1 migrating to 10.2 this springBe prepared with install media for AND 10.Flexibility/Adaptability will be key. Use contract computers where appropriate.
14 FIMT for version 10.1 status Sean Triplett(May 2013):ArcGIS Add-in, no longer an extensionWorks with 10.1 and 10.2Beta in June 2014Direct upload to EGPFIMT issuesAcreage – equal area will be different from UTM acres, FIMT is more correct in terms of acreageLarge fires (150,000 acres) -> PGDB

20 Originally published by NWCG in 2006 GSTOP 2014 has been finalized! GISSTandardOperatingProcedureson IncidentsOriginally published by NWCG in 2006GSTOP 2014 has been finalized!March/April 2014 electronic publication dateFinal version DID NOT change GISS PTB (2009)for final draft and after NWCG publication dateThe GIS Standard Operating Procedures on Incidents (GSTOP) document was updated for publication in 2014.Final draft document ready available for use at web siteNO changes to the PTB – 2009 version is STILL VALID!
21 GSTOP Key Points “... will be met by all NWCG participating agencies.” Data management, symbology and map products, data sharing, team transition2014 main updates: Ch. 2 (data mgmt.), Ch. 5 (symbology), and Ch. 6 (maps)Ch. 7 reminder: datasets shared on a daily basis are fire perimeter and fireline layersPost data on a the NIFC ftp site, ftp://ftp.nifc.govMany applications and sites depend on this: , ,etc.Not “optional” – its what is required of a trainee in a PTB so therefore it should be implemented by qualified GISS as wellMost changes to data management – slight changes in directory structure and naming, new map symbols, map element requirementsGo to to get the zipped directory structure for use on an incident, a spreadsheet for easy file naming, and the GSTOP style file for ArcGISReminder for data sharing!

24 Comments, questions? firstname.lastname@example.org Note that additional information from previous years is added as we receive it.Last year’s slide showed 36,601 perimeters. So we’ve added 5,533 in the past year.Post perimeters on the ftp site ftp.nifc.govStandardize the directory structureUse standard shapefile formatAdhere to the NWCG Daily Fire Perimeter StandardProvide accurate coordinates in the 209Comments, questions?Users of the GeoMAC perimeter database:InciwebInterior Operations CenterNews AgenciesRed CrossAcademiaRDDSNHSSState EOCsJoe PublicComments, questions?
