9The Haiti crisis provided an excellent opportunity to introduce our metadata tagging service to ops in order to help manage the mountain of products being created by NGA and SOUTHCOM. Within the first two days of the crisis, the Unclassified Haiti Intellipedia site had over 50 pages full of products posted by our analysts. While these products were useful, finding and reusing the products proved futile. Utilizing our partners, we and EGM helped the Crisis Action team and SOUTHCOM to quickly implement the standard metadata tagging service to ensure that products were easier to find and manage.In addition, EGM had developed a process to ensure that products created at unclassified level could easily be made available on the other classified networks within minutes— something that had been very painful for them to manage in the past.As a lesson learned, PM developed a “user story” requesting to have an FOUO version of the standard metadata tagging service. The key to building web services and having them work together is loose coupling. Despite the term, building services that can be “loosely coupled” takes a lot of discipline as the developers have to conform to OGC standards and other industry best practices. The results are powerful in that a user can identify a need and a service can be built sometimes in just a matter of hours.Thus using our agile development process, our developers were able to incorporate this user story into the tagging service, so that when the Deepwater Oil Spill occurred, we had already developed an FOUO version of the tagging service and parts of PM were already using this service on the ops floor.By providing the standard metadata tagging service and showing them how to use the service, over 1300 products have been tagged and are retrievable for Haiti and over 700 so far for Deepwater Oil Spill efforts.
