1 Transboundary communication: bridging the data gap Carolyn Pearson

2 Overview GIS coverages, data dictionaries, and metadata: What they are and why they are important Environmental attributes that can be displayed using G.I.S. Mapping transboundary data: Feasibility, Issues and Solutions Data Portal Technology: Online access 24 hours/day, 7 days/week

3 Audience GIS Experience

4 Washington State

5 Okanogan basin

6 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Image as a backdrop

7 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Without an image as a backdrop

8 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Coverages/ shapefiles The “map” Osoyoos Lake Okanogan/ Okanagan River Similkameen River Oroville

9 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Coverages/ shapefiles The “map” Shape Polygons Osoyoos Lake Okanogan/ Okanagan River Similkameen River Oroville

10 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Coverages/ shapefiles The “map” Shape Polygons Lines Similkameen River Osoyoos Lake Oroville Okanogan/ Okanagan River

11 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Coverages/ shapefiles The “map” Shape Polygons Lines Points Enloe Dam Osoyoos Lake Similkameen River Okanogan/ Okanagan River Oroville

12 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Coverages have an associated data table

13 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Coverages have an associated data table Fish distribution SPPCODEDIST_TYPEUSE_TYPEDATA_SRC CHSU SOCK121 STSU223

14 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Data Dictionaries “Defines” the codes and abbreviations in the data table

15 SPPCODEDIST_TYPEUSE_TYPEDATA_SRC CHSU SOCK121 STSU223

16 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Metadata Data “methods” Who created the data What information was included or excluded Where can I obtain the data When, How and Why was it created

17 GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata Coverage/shapefile Map Data Dictionary Defines table codes and abbreviations Metadata Data methods

18 Environmental Attributes What environmental attributes can be displayed using GIS?

19 Environmental Attributes What environmental attributes can be displayed using GIS? A to Z

20 Environmental Attributes Alkalinity Bed Scour Benthos Channel length Channel width Confinement: Man-made Natural Dissolved Oxygen Embeddedness Fish community richness Fish pathogens Fish species introductions Flow

21 Environmental Attributes Gradient Habitat types Hatchery fish outplants Hydrologic regime Natural Regulated Icing Metals/Pollution Man-made Natural Nutrient Enrichment Obstructions to fish passage Riparian function Temperature

22 Environmental Attributes Turbidity Water withdrawals Wood Zygotes Salmon redds

23 Mapping Transboundary Data Feasibility Issues Solutions

24 Mapping Transboundary Data Feasibility Is it possible to map environmental data across boundaries?

25 Mapping Transboundary Data Feasibility Is it possible to map environmental data across boundaries? Yes

26 Mapping Transboundary Data Issues Easy (with GIS experience) Different mapping projections Metric vs. standard units of measurement More challenging Different Methods used to obtain similar data Coordinating all the groups to reach a common goal Funding

27 Mapping Transboundary Data Issues: Different Mapping Projections and Units of Measure

28 Mapping Transboundary Data Issues: Different Methods Small: 6” diam. Med: 12” diam. Lg: 36” diam. Small: 12” diam. Med: 24” diam. Lg: 72” diam. Agency 1Agency 2

29 Mapping Transboundary Data Issues: Coordinating the groups

30 Mapping Transboundary Data Issues: Funding

31 Mapping Transboundary Data Solutions Interest Persistence Coordination Methods Implementation GIS staff Time to get the work done Money to implement it

32 Data Portal Technology Ideal situation Habitat Attribute data available online 24 hours/day, 7 days/week

33 Data Portal Technology Ideal situation Habitat Attribute data available online 24 hours/day, 7 days/week Is it Feasible?

34 Data Portal Technology Ideal situation Habitat Attribute data available online 24 hours/day, 7 days/week Is it Feasible? Yes

35 Data Portal Technology Online map viewers Canada: Fish Wizard (available now) Washington State: Salmon Scape (available ~July 2003)

36 Data Portal Technology GIS data Canada: GeoConnections GeoGratis Washington State: Natural Resources Information Portal

37 WA Natural Resources Information Portal “Rolled out” on June 1, 2003 It’s a sturdy environmental search engine Data Catalog with summary information, URL (or contact in if not on the web), key theme words, geographic search capability Nadine Romero

38 WA Natural Resources Information Portal Phase I: State data Currently populating the database Phase II: Federal data Federal agencies can contact NRIP now to post data Phase III: Local data ~September 2003 local groups can contact NRIP to post data

42 Transboundary communication: bridging the data gap Is it Feasible?

43 Transboundary communication: bridging the data gap Is it Feasible? Yes

44 Transboundary communication: bridging the data gap Is it Feasible? Yes Can the Issues be overcome?

45 Transboundary communication: bridging the data gap Is it Feasible? Yes Can the Issues be overcome? Yes

46 Transboundary communication: bridging the data gap Is it Feasible? Yes Can the Issues be overcome? Yes Want to be part of the Solution?

47 Transboundary communication: bridging the data gap Is it Feasible? Yes Can the Issues be overcome? Yes Want to be part of the Solution? Yes

48 Transboundary communication: bridging the data gap Post your GIS data online Encourage others to post their data Stay involved
