9 From Geographical Information Systems to GeoPortal Services

10 Goal and Mission To Supply Geo-Information and- Application Services via the Internet as Integrated and Embedded part of any websites.Through Fixed and Mobile connections these Services can be delivered any Time, any Place and for Everybody.

11 The GeoPortal Solution From concept to Solution Using webservices technics 3 Solution businessmodels: –Traditional project; –Outsourcing model; –ASP-model. GeoPortal Services….

12 Education Services Geo-Apps Services Geo-Data Services De GeoPortal Services Project Solutions and Cases (Professional Services) GeoPortal Interface Services GeoPortal Basis IT-infrastructuur

13 GeoPortal Standards WWW Consortium Standards OGC Web Services (OWS) Metadata Standards (CEN/ISO) J2EE Oracle 9iDB Oracle 9iAS Oracle 9i Spatial Option

14 Acces to GeoData and services: Locate (find) GeoData View GeoData Use/Analyse Geodata (Payment, access,…) ……. Integration of data!! GeoPortal, Wat is het? Catalog Services WebMapping GeoServices

24 GeoPortal: Kadaster Internet Services

25 GeoPortal case: Dutch Geo Clearinghouse


27 GeoPortal remarks Moving very fast towards a distributed geo service concept GeoPortals: –Data is no longer ‘local’ –Geo Processing Resources (services) at a distance Commerce will dominate the market? Problem: –how to integrate information from different ‘Portals’ –Domination of sofware vendors? open standards OpenGIS can help us! –Webmapping –Catalog services


29 Content Introducing Geodan From GIS to GeoPortal NCGI –International situation –Introduction and history –Public-Privat Partnership NCGI-Geodan –NCGI new generation –The future challenges –Project examples

30 INSPIRE Infrastructure for Spatial Information In Europe Source: Presentation to the OGC meeting 10 June 2002, London Paul Smits – Joint Research Centre Chairman, Architecture and Standards Working Group

31 Architecture & Standards Chair : JRC Ispra Legal Aspects & Data Policy Chair : UK Funding & Implementation structures Chair : SE Common Reference Data & Metadata Chair : ESTAT Impact Analysis Chair : NL Environmental thematic co-ordination Chair: EEA Inter-sectoral co-ordination Chair: ESTAT ….. biodiversity soils seveso urban noise forest water Environmental components Horizontal Components Agricultural components Transport components Other components Technical Co-ordination & Secretariat JRC Ispra - Institute for Environment and Sustainability COGI Chair: ESTAT INSPIRE Expert Group Chair : DG ENV & ESTAT Thematic Components E-ESDI Other thematic co-ordination Chair: Transport thematic co-ordination Chair: Agricultural thematic co-ordination Chair: Phase 1: Environmental Sector INSPIRE

32 AST vision The architecture envisioned by AST deploys interoperable services that will help to produce and publish, find and access, and eventually, use and understand geographic information over the internet across the European Union and Accession Countries at local, national, and European levels.

33 Methodology Organisation model - shows the organisation’s goals, relationships (financial, economic, business) between public and private sector, and rules and policies User model - identifies the types of users and defines user requirements Process model - defines the abstract business objects that will be modelled and codified in the SDI system, their rules, and workflow Architecture model - defines the SDI system components and the relationship between them (e.g., servers, their functionality, client applications, etc.) as well as their relationship to the different national and international standards and specifications (e.g. OpenGIS and ISO) Implementation model - breaks down the architecture model into smaller components and defines the scope of the technology decisions, deployment platforms, building and reusing components, and performance and networking decisions

34 Current status Architecture model Clients Middleware Servers FeaturesCoverages Metadata update Catalogs Geo-processing and catalog Services Content Repositories Other data e.g., administrative, statistical, env. reporting Distributed Geographic reference data Service chaining: search, display, access, e- commerce, …. User applications Direct data access Access to transformed data, pictures, maps, reports, multi-media content Metadata search and retrieval for data and services After the Digital Earth Reference Model

35 Current status Digital geographic information repositories

36 Current status Catalogs and metadata

37 Current status Geospatial processing services (notably catalog services)

38 Current status Applications

39 Inspire inspired NCGI to change

40 NCGI History Phase 0: Ravi Initiative march 1995 Phase 1: Idefix- pilotmid 1997 Phase 2: NCGI official startearly 1998 Phase 3: NCGI version 1.1end 2000 –Redesign website –Pilot WebMapping –Distributed information (nodes at the source) Status reportearly 2001 –13 data suppliers with approx. 1500 geodatasets –Many technical and organizational problems encountered –Financial future uncertain (governmental grant only 4 years)

41 Motivation for the continuation of NCGI Infrastructuur NCGI is OK -> ready for use In future focus on exploitation of the infrastructure and on users Quality and transparency via NCGI garanteed: –Openess, uses available standards, Security issues,… G-to-G discussion within government G-to-P discussion ‘not in my backyard’ International geo-issues: –High water, industrial air pollution, mouth disease,…… –New Inspiration from GSDI, GINIE, INSPIRE initiatives HOW to continue ???

42 Public Private Partnership NCGI – Geodan (phase 4) Agreement signed end June 2001 Starting 1 July 2001: –NCGI Foundation remains owner –Geodan responsible for exploitation and maintenance Main task of the Foundation: –Watching over, and Monitoring, the mission and goals of the foundation PPP construction used frequently in Netherlands –GBKN: Large Scale BaseMap –IntWIS: Integral Water Information System –KLIC: Cable and Pipe Information Centre (call before you dig) –Sherpa: GeoIT fundament for Nationwide security (homeland)

43 NCGI new proposed organizational setup NCGI Users (government and public) NCGI management team NCGI Daily board NCGI Foundation Data and service providers OperationsSales/MKTProjects Advisory Board NCGI Users/suppliers Geodan SLA’s PPPSLA’s Portals

44 Mission and Goal: NCGI New Generation Mission NCGI: –The NCGI aims at the exploitation and maintenance of an geo- platform for quick and cost effective publishing and using geo- datasets and geo-infrastructure services for the purpose dissimination of geo-information within and between state, regional and local government and to the general public. Goal NCGI: –To run a economic profitable NCGI infrastructure within the boundaries of the mission. The infrastructure may be used to supply (meta)datasets or may be used for a quick start for projects with high priority or can be used to publish ongoing thematic geo-related information to the public and/or government. Enough new challenges !!

45 NCGI : infrastructure and services for exchange of governmental geo information NCGI Infra Citizens

46 From basic infrastructure -> end user apps Catalog services (metadata) -> Data services Data services -> Information services –Focused on theme’s and projects Information services -> Knowledge Change NCGI from metadata provider -> “service provider” NCGI: grow model -> 2002 –2004 In General: From GeoDatasets to GeoServices (OWS)

47 NCGI services architecture NCGI GeoServices NCGI-Clients/Entry NCGI GeoPortal NCGI Theme portal NCGI Project portal User application Searching (central node) Downloading (ordering) NCGI DataServices Metadata record (Local Cataloge Service) Raster Datasets (WCS) Vector Datasets (WMS/WFS) Alfanumerical Datasets (WFS) Viewing (webmapping) Using (analyses) Security, privacy checks e-commerce, disclaimers

48 From clearinghouse to GDI

49 Content model new NCGI Services: Basic infrastructure (“current NCGI”) –Catalog services (metadata) –Distributed setup with local nodes –Add actual datasets –Expanded with new geodata services (WMS, WFS, WCS, …) Thematic GeoPortal services (framework,I-team) –Information services Project GeoPortal services (specials) –Proces supporting Supply Knowledge and research services ‘ GeoSpatial One Stop’

50 NCGI GeoPortals – Future examples Thematic: Traffic Reconstruction farmland Environmental Quality monitor Public Safety and security Cables and pipes Land Use Land Planning Watermanagement Projects: Large infrastructural works Landreform projects Coastal projects DURP MKZ ….
