Pennsylvania GTO 3-Year Strategic Plan NSGIC Annual Conference 2005 Rochester, NY Jim Knudson (firstname.lastname@example.org) Stacey White (email@example.com)
Pennsylvania GTO Strategic Plan 3-Year Plan for Enterprise GT Initiatives Primary Goals: –Set vision and mission –Identify priorities –Identify specific projects and initiatives –Identify resources needed to accomplish and benefits to be gained –Seek additional funding from Governor’s Office, Budget Office and Legislature
Pennsylvania GTO Strategic Plan First time state has published a GT strategic plan Eric Jespersen assisted BGT in development of the GTO Strategic Plan Recognized by OIT as best Strategic Plan developed by any OIT Bureau, being used as a model for updates to OIT’s Keystone IT Strategic Plan
Commonwealth GT Strategic Plan BGT Mission: The Bureau of Geospatial Technologies develops the Geospatial Enterprise Architecture for Pennsylvania, coordinates Executive agency and enterprise geospatial initiatives, and facilitates geospatial interoperability and data sharing across all levels of government in support of defined Pennsylvania priorities and the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI).
Commonwealth GT Strategic Plan BGT Vision: Geospatial Technologies will improve how governments collaborate, will provide timely and relevant information to decision makers, and will improve the safety, welfare, and quality of life for the Commonwealth and its citizens.
Commonwealth GT Strategic Plan Goals: To make Commonwealth government operations more effective and efficient. To develop the GEA to guide investments and GESA to build centralized geospatial assets for use by all governments and first responders in the Commonwealth. To improve geospatial data management efforts. To establish a Statewide GT Council to augment GT governance within Commonwealth agencies.
Commonwealth GT Strategic Plan Goals: To define data stewards to reduce overlap and duplication of Commonwealth geospatial efforts. To define geospatial data standards that facilitate data sharing. To build sustainable geospatial capabilities and capacity across the extended enterprise.
Commonwealth GT Strategic Plan Guiding Principles Improve government services Geospatial Enterprise Architecture Development Leverage every dollar spent for the extended enterprise Maximize sharing of ideas, knowledge, data and applications Listen and understand partner needs and priorities to inform decision-making Remain agile and open to new ideas, always guided by a long-range plan Maintain constant awareness of trends and opportunities Relationships and communications trump technologies
Commonwealth GT Strategic Plan BGT will: Operate an effective and inclusive Commonwealth geospatial governance structure; Develop a comprehensive Geospatial Enterprise Architecture (GEA) to serve the needs of agencies and the geospatial extended enterprise; Create an enterprise Geospatial Strategic Plan for all agencies and extended enterprise partners to follow; Develop an enterprise geospatial training program for agencies to improve our technology workforce. Develop enterprise geospatial resources including a centralized Commonwealth geospatial data repository for all data that needs to be shared, reusable geospatial web application components, and a shared services strategy for serving all agencies and external business partners;
Commonwealth GT Strategic Plan BGT will: Develop a strategy for geospatial interoperability for the Commonwealth, including the use of Open Geospatial Consortium standards and the development of data sharing standards; Develop grant guidelines that promote data sharing, interoperability, data standards, and furtherance of Commonwealth geospatial initiatives by leveraging all available funding and projects; and Partner with federal, state, local government, academic, and business entities to leverage all resources to accomplish Commonwealth geospatial priorities.
Geospatial Enterprise Architecture Concepts: –Develop the GEA –Make data more useful, accessible and secure Relevance –Increased efficiency and cohesiveness of government operations –Supports Public Safety –Fosters Economic Development –Protects and preserves our environmental resources
Geospatial Enterprise Architecture Initiatives –Enterprise Geospatial Data Repository –GIS Data Inventory and Data Stewardship –PA Geospatial Data Sharing Standards –Enterprise Essential Services and Geospatial Applications –Geospatial Standards, Directives, and Best Practices
Enterprise Strengthening Concepts –Provide resources –Build partnerships –Enhance Capabilities Initiatives –Statewide GIS Council –Commonwealth GT Strategic Plan –GIS/JNET Integration –Agency GIS Coordination and Guidance –GT Communications –Federal GT Partnerships and National Perspectives
Building Data Assets Concepts: –Statewide Data –Support for NSDI Initiatives –Statewide Address Database –Statewide High-Resolution Imagery/PAMAP –Statewide High-Resolution Elevation Data –Real-Time Weather –Critical Infrastructure
Geospatial Communities of Practice (PA GeoCoPa)
GeoCoPa Organized by Business functions Hold quarterly meetings with General Government Operations, Environmental, Public Safety, and Health and Human Services Replaces one-on-one meetings between GTO and agencies CoP Joint Project/Priority Focus Areas: –General Government Operations: Geocoding –Environmental: Land Records –Public Safety: GPS and Tracking –Health and Human Services: Geocoding Anonymity – Density Mapping
