GeoResources Institute Census TIGER File Maintenance MARIS Briefing for MS State and Local DSL February 25, 2004 Chuck O’Hara
Project Overview A congressionally-funded program to conduct research for the maintenance of Census TIGER file data. The project technical proposal was developed to establish and validate the use of high-resolution satellite image data for technologies to support the TIGER data maintenance program of the Bureau of Census. Generate findings that motivate use of developed technologies by BOC, other federal agencies, and local government. Perform necessary research to assure change detection and feature extraction capabilities provide results with needed accuracy, precision, and cost-effective characteristics.
Census TIGER File Maintenance Project The TIGER File Maintenance Project will validate the use of high-resolution satellite image data for land use change detection and feature extraction technologies that could provide support to the Bureau of Census TIGER data maintenance program.
Census TIGER File Maintenance Project The project will use enhanced multi-spectral remote sensing imagery for extracting features of interest for maintaining spatial feature databases to federal agencies [such as the Bureau of Census] as well as to state and local agencies for updating and maintaining their spatial databases.
A benchmark example of accomplishing spatial database updates through improved technology use, the Bureau of Census TIGER Modernization Project employs spatial information technologies to significantly improve the nation’s important Census data. The Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (TIGER) database will be modernized as part of a re-engineered 2010 Census. The five major objectives of the modernization project are to: 1) Correct locations of streets, other map features, and housing units; identify new streets/housing units using automated change detection methods (MAINTENANCE) 2) Develop/deploy a new MAF/TIGER processing environment based on COTS and GIS tools 3) Expand and encourage geographic partnership programs 4) Launch the Community Address Updating System (CAUS) 5) Implement periodic evaluation activities Census TIGER File Maintenance Project

An object-based approach for feature classification. An integrated spectral/morphologic/multi-temporal approach for change detection. Development of data analysis tools for sharpening, fusion, benchmarking, verification and validation, and performance analysis. Development of workflow management tools for managing, tracking, and analyzing status of project workflow tasks.
TIGER Project Validation and Verification Develop tools to systematically arrive at objective, consistently derived measurements of the quality, accuracy, and precision of results. Develop approaches that embrace and extend new field data acquisition methods to provide improved reference datasets to be used in V & V work. Develop a suite of tools that can be used together to enhance and preprocess data, develop improved intermediate products, enhance data workflows, and facilitate benchmarking of workflow tasks against traditional techniques.

Determine optimal processing approaches. Analyze methods to identify processing bottlenecks. Develop computational workflow solutions that address bottlenecks. Provide tools needed to manage tasks, review project status, and provide management viewpoints of data, intermediate products, and results. Provide design guidance and configuration for a production capability. TIGER Project Systematization
Preliminary reports include a detailed project design documents, contractual terms and conditions, and intellectual property plan. A set of technical documents and deliverables will be developed throughout the course of the project. TIGER Project Reporting and Demonstrations
TIGER Project Needs Assessment Decision Support Labs will be conducted to assess challenges involved in maintaining spatial data sets keeping them current and accurate. State/Local user DSL at MARIS February 25, 2004. Federal users DSL in DC perhaps with the JACIE and/or perhaps at SSC for Fed City participation. Larger community of users DSL at ESRI UC.
Develop strategy for selecting outreach partners and targeting larger communities at later dates. Identify outreach coordinator who will work with on-the- ground partners and practitioners. Develop data exchange methods and approaches. Develop relationships with desired on-the-ground partners. Develop media for on-the-ground partners. Develop guidance for working with on-the-ground partners. Develop media for delivering data products and results to outreach partners. TIGER Project Outreach
Identify data and service vendors willing to partner who have products, goals, and directions consistent with project objectives. Identify and prioritize interests held in common with potential partners. Compare organization strengths and discuss possible approaches to tasks allocation. Describe project needs and resources. Develop SOWs, project task descriptions, budgets that make clear task assignments laying out in appropriate detail tasks plans and expectations. TIGER Project Commercialization
