4 January GTSC Meeting Minutes Review Approval?

5 PAMAP Progress

6 Statewide Imagery Status

7 PAMAP 2005 Status

8 PAMAP Progress $2.85M available of $5.5M needed for Spring 2005 Flights Funding Amounts:  DCNR - $1.5M  OA/OIT - $500K  Health - $300K  DCED - $250K  DEP - $100K  PENNDOT - $100K  OA/BGT - $100K

9 PAMAP Advisory Committee Formed by PAMAP Program Office from stakeholder executives from federal, state, local governments to draft PAMAP policy Meet regularly to formulate PAMAP policies Create a PAMAP Technical Committee Develop a PAMAP Raster Implementation Plan (imagery, elevation) Draft federal/state/county PAMAP data sharing agreements

10 NAIP 1m CIR Imagery Update

11 Statewide 2004 Summer/Fall Color Infrared 1m Pixel Imagery Example

12 CIR Access MrSID County Mosaics available online on OIT FTP Site Average size is 170MB/county CIR great for landscape changes, impervious surfaces, vegetative health, water features

13 Statewide 2004 Summer/Fall Color Infrared 1m Pixel Imagery Example

14 Statewide 2004 Summer/Fall CIR Showing Landuse Change and Impervious Surfaces

15 BGT Project Updates

16 Weather Project Geospatial Enterprise Architecture procured, designed, and being deployed Requirements being finalized prior to final review by Weather Workgroup and provided to DGS Procurement RFP for Data Services planned for release April 15, Proposals due 5/21? RFQs for Application Development in May/June Possibility of using PA-GEARS for weather dissemination and severe weather alerting

17 DHS ITEP Project Budget approved by DHS on 3/3, notified 3/7 MOU between DHS CIO and OIT CIO signed 2/24 Held meeting with Ryan Cast and Geospatial Management Office in Harrisburg on 2/25 Finalizing Concept of Operations, including interoperable geospatial data sharing and PEIRS geospatial enhancements Will leverage DHS source code assets from other federal projects

18 Geospatial Enterprise Architecture (GEA) Application Hosting Web Environment Enterprise Geospatial Data Repository Capable of drawing 1.8M maps/day?

19 Geospatial Enterprise Architecture (GEA) Application Web Environment Geospatial Data Repository

20 Address Geocoding Web Service Initial Web Service launched in production on 3/1 Test page in staging: BasicAddressMatch/GeoCodeTestPage.aspx Currently only PA, ordered national address dataset

23 GEA/Essential Services GEA servers being built, Oracle database being designed, 15TB of storage. Will have intranet/Internet GIS application hosting environment, ability to host BGT and agency applications Address Geocoding web service launched 3/1 in production Still evaluating QAS USPS address validation/verification software. Out of box solution is less than desirable. Told vendor to put up or shut up and refund license costs. Routing – later this year Mapping – planning 3-4 applications this year, including PA-GEARS

24 GT Staff Augmentation BGT only has 2 full-time resources, which limits our abilities PENNDOT provided a programming resource for 3 months PEMA provided a GIS resource for 2 months BGT needs full-time technical resources,.NET and GIS savvy Found initial resource through CAI staff augmentation contract, starts 3/28, Raghu Bhimarao, formerly with GeoDecisions in VA

25 GT FY2004 Training Results back from ITQ procurements PoconoGIS selected for Data Collection, Editing, and Production 1-Day Classes (3) – 12/class Geospatial Training and Consulting selected for: –ArcGIS I – 2 day classes (1) – 12/class –ArcGIS II – 3 day classes (4) – 45 total –Building Geodatabases I – 2 day classes (2) – 12/class –Building Geodatabases II – 2 day classes (2) – 12/class Total students trained in classroom with BGT funds in FY 2004 = 141

26 GIS Data Inventory Agencies requested to complete Agency metadata and metadata for each data set created and maintained by the agency by 3/24 Necessary to understand available data assets, overlap and duplication of efforts, data that needs to be shared, metadata availability Current Status…

32 Review of BGT Strategic Planning Initiatives

33 GTAC Top 5 Issues and Objectives Standardized Training Information Classification/Security Recruitment and retention of skills Required partnerships – Interagency, multiple levels of government funding and resources Data stewards – Who is the data steward, and how communicated? Develop need to share across state, federal, and local Develop process for data stewardship Continued outreach to help identify opportunities Benefits of combining data Integrated partnerships Capture data at 2 levels Day-to-Day, operational Emergency Management/Homeland Security

34 GTSC Top 5 Issues and Objectives Standardized Data Request Form – needed for when releasing data from the agencies Homeland Security – changes in personnel, Kitchen Cabinet Hardware Standards Quality Management – best practices for creating and managing data Technical expertise – provide support for the GEA products

35 New Business

36 GIS Reclassification Strategy Art asked Jim to document DCNR and PSP Selective Certification processes for hiring GIS positions PSP and DCNR have provided timelines and documentation of steps DCNR finally found a qualified candidate on 3 rd try, PSP didn’t and will have to train Will deliver to OA/HR and establish an initial dialogue Will work with GTSC to establish a collaborative agency working group for GIS job position descriptions and reclassification

37 List of Skills Needed for GIS Field Users –GPS and Data Collection –Data Analysis Desktop Users –Mapping –Data Editing/Database Design/Data Management –Cartography/Map Making Web Application Development –IIS, HTML, ASP.NET, Javascript, VBScript –COM, DLLs, XML, Web Services Support Staff –Systems Support –Database –Network
