1 Alabama Geographic Information Council The National Spatial Data Infrastructure and Geospatial One Stop E-Gov Initative May 15, 2002 John Moeller Staff Director Federal Geographic Data Committee

2 The Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) 17 Cabinet and Executive Level Agencies Chaired by DOI, Vice Chair - OMB Coordination of Geographic Data at Federal level Federal Leadership for NSDI Includes participation of many Stakeholders from State, Local and Tribal governments, private sector and academia FGDC Staff supports daily operations

3 FGDC Federal Agencies n USDA n Commerce n Defense n NIMA n USACE n Energy n HUD n Interior n Justice n State n Transportation n EPA n FEMA n Library of Congress n NARA n NASA n NSF n TVA n HHS

4 Spatial Data Is Critical to Business and Government nGovernment information is a valuable national resource - OMB A-130 nEstimated 80% of government data has spatial component nGeography serves as the common thread to address diverse issues nCan’t effectively do Homeland Security or E-Gov without geographic information

5 Issues Affecting Nations, Communities & Citizens - Happen in Places Emergency Response Wild Fire Management Population Growth Washington, DC - Baltimore

6 NSDI Vision Current and accurate geographic information is readily available locally, nationally, and internationally… An Infrastructure for improved public and private sector use of geospatial data for better decision making

7 The NSDI n OMB Circular A-16 and EO 12906 l Develop and implement spatial data resource for nation l Reduce duplication of effort l Promote effective management by all levels of government l Improve the acquisition, distribution and use of geographic information l Stakeholder collaboration - public private partnerships (State, local, tribal, Pvt, Academic) l Federal leadership provided by the FGDC

8 NSDI Components Framework Provides consistent base for spatial location Framework Data Themes Imagery Elevation Cadastral Transportation Governmental Units Geodetic Hydrography

9 NSDI Components Metadata Explanation or textual description of data resources

10 NSDI Components Clearinghouse (catalog) Provide access and catalogue ability

11 NSDI Components Standards Standards for data and technology interoperability

12 NSDI Components GEOdata Geographic data needed for community decision-making

13 NSDI Components Partnerships Relationships for collaboration, sharing and policy deliberations

14 NSDI Components Metadata GEOdata Clearinghouse (catalog) Framework Standards Partnerships

15 NSDI - How Is It Built ? By Implementing NSDI Policies, Practices and Standards in Programs and Geospatial Activities as part of an organization’s responsibilities –USGS National Map –US Census Tiger/MAF –FEMA Map Modernization –State and local Programs and Activities

16 NSDI - How Is It Built ? By Implementing NSDI Policies, Practices and Standards in Programs and Geospatial Activities as part of an organization’s responsibilities –Federal Programs such as USGS National Map, US Census Tiger, FEMA Map Modernization Other programs that collect or produce geospatial data –State and local Programs and Activities –Private sector, academia, & NGO Programs and activities –Standards based technology tools and software

17 Geospatial One-Stop E-Gov Initiative

18 E-Gov Initiatives Federal OMB TaskForce Purpose: Recommend “High Payoff” E-Gov Initiatives: –Interviews with many sectors –Basic research and analysis –Made recommendations to President’s Management Council (PMC) 24 Initiatives were selected Geospatial Information One Stop selected as one of the Government to Government Initiatives Lead was assigned to the Department of the Interior and FGDC –11 Federal Partner Agencies plus State, Local, and Tribal government –Other Sectors will be key players

19 Vision of Geospatial One-Stop To spatially enable the delivery of government services

20 Current Model Data Producer Data User Data User Data User Data User Data User NSDI Gateway Portal

21 Future Model Local Governments Federal Government State Governments Tribal Governments Civilian Sector DoD Commercial Sector Local Users DoD Users Tribal Users State Users National Policy Makers Commercial Users Civilian Users International Users Federal Users Geospatial One-Stop Portal Other standards- based portals

22 Project Goals  Provide fast, low cost, reliable access to Geospatial Data needed for government operations via a G2G web portal for geospatial information  Facilitate the effective alignment of roles, responsibilities and resources for G2G geospatial interactions needed for vertical missions such as Homeland Security  Obtain multi- sector input for geographic information standards to create consistency needed for interoperability and to stimulate market development of tools

23 One Stop Modules Focus of Geo One Stop is to accelerate development and implementation of NSDI technology, policies and standards that support “one-stop” access  Develop consensus standards for core data requirements  Framework data standards and models  Document current Framework holding in Clearinghouse  Document planned Framework data collection in Clearinghouse  Develop interoperable Web services  Design and implement a comprehensive government to government web portal for geospatial information

24 Portal Concepts Internet @FGDC Internet Geospatial One-Stop Portal User Interface Components AnalysisSymbolsHelp Web ClientsApplication Clients Services Provider Organizations Data Service Clients

25 Geospatial One Stop What are the Outcomes ?   All levels of government have better, faster, less expensive access to reliable data to expedite citizen service  Improved ability to leverage and align resources for data acquisition partnerships and reuse of accessible geospatial data  All E-Gov Initiatives are spatially enabled through data and functional capability from Geospatial One-Stop  Homeland Security and Government Mission needs are supported with geospatial information

26 How To Help in Geospatial One Stop  Provide input and representation of all levels of government and sectors in Geospatial One Stop:  Technical and program topics  Standards requirements and models  Candidates for Standards Development Process  Review and Input on Drafts  Implementation of Standards when they are endorsed  Participation in Portal Requirements and Design  Document Framework Theme data holdings and Plans  Simplify and unify programs and initiatives to accomplish multiple objectives through I-Team and other collaborative efforts

30 How Do Organizations Implement NSDI Technical: – Document data using FGDC/NSDI Metadata Standard – Publish metadata (and data) in the NSDI Clearinghouse – Promote interoperable specifications and interfaces – Promote data integration – Implement and Adhere to NSDI standards for all data collection and acquisition

31 How Do Organizations Implement NSDI Institutional: – Search Clearinghouse before collecting data – Budget and leverage agency resources – Ensure data is readily shared with users – Coordinate and build partnerships through State Councils, I-Teams, etc. – Protect privacy and confidentiality – Minimize duplication and use spatial data to enhance business and decision processes ( E-gov ) – Promote integration of activities to serve multiple objectives – Be a part of the solution

32 Alabama Has Building Blocks in Place Participation in FGDC Programs – NSDI Clearinghouse – Metadata Development – Educational Outreach and Symposia – Participation in FGDC/NSGIC Framework Survey AGIC established by Executive Order with specific charge to educate and assess the need and potential benefit of use of geographic information and technologies Leaders willing to implement change
