1 The United States National Spatial Data Infrastructure

2 Using Geographic Information and Technology to Support the Business of Government and Industry GSDI 5 - Session 9 John Moeller, Staff Director Federal Geographic Data Committee, USA

3 USA NSDI Vision Many organizations / people working towards a common goal: A geographic information resource for the 21 st Century Current and accurate geographic information is readily available locally, nationally, and internationally… Improved public and private sector application and use of geospatial data and better decisions and decision making

4 Business Reason Spatial Data is a national capital asset NSDI helps reduce duplication and avoid redundant expenditures Accelerate Electronic Government and Commerce and improve citizen and customer service Many applications are dependent upon accurate spatial data

5 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

6 Fundamental Tenets of the NSDI (Business Practices) Seek incentives not mandates Distribute power and function Build on trust, credibility, and common shared interest, not a hierarchy of control Implement and govern by consensus National standards designed to support and guide agency and local actions

7 Fundamental Tenets of the NSDI (Business Practices) Collect once, use many times Search before spending Provide equitable access to data, tools and decision making Protect privacy and confidentiality of personal information and protect proprietary rights Infrastructure supports decision making n

8 The NSDI n Key Components l METADATA documentation l CLEARINGHOUSE (Catalogue) for discovery and access l Interoperability STANDARDS for data and technology l Core set of nationally consistent FRAMEWORK data l Coordinated logically-consistent collections of other GEODATA l Collaborative PARTNERSHIPS

9 NSDI STRATEGY Goal 1--Increase the awareness and understanding of the vision, concepts, and benefits of the NSDI through outreach and education. Some Activities: NSDI Communications Toolkit FGDC Electronic Metadata Workbook Training and Implementation Assistance Newsletters Websites

10 NSDI STRATEGY Goal 2--Develop common solutions for discovery, access, and use of geospatial data in response to the needs of diverse communities. Some Activities: Metadata extensions ISO Metadata Clearinghouse development OGC Interoperability Specifications Web Mapping and Clearinghouse Integration

11 NSDI STRATEGY Goal 3--Use community-based approaches to develop and maintain common collections of geospatial data for sound decision-making. Some Activities: Implementation-Team(I-Team) Initiative Community Demonstration Project FGDC Data Standards 15 endorsed 16 in development Framework Development NSDI Boilerplate Procurement Language Goal 4--Build relationships among organizations to support the continuing development of the NSDI.

12 NSDI STRATEGY Goal 4--Build relationships among organizations to support the continuing development of the NSDI. Some Activities; NSDI Cooperative Agreements NSDI Financing Alternatives Implementation-Team(I-Team) Initiative NSDI Policy Development (Revision of OMB Circular A-16) GeoData Alliance FGDC NSDI Partnerships

13 The I-Team Initiative for the United States National Spatial Data Infrastructure

14 Background OMB Information Initiative nImprove Quality of Information Collected nReduce Collection Burden nMaximize the Benefits of Technology Geospatial Information Roundtable nAddress financial & institutional barriers nOver 110 attendees from Federal agencies, Hill, State & local government, private sector

15 What Did We Learn? Robust Technology (Interoperability and Open standards) is Making It Easier to Share Data NSDI Will Be a Key Component of E- Government and E-Commerce Much work still needed on Standards The Barriers Are Institutional and Financial It’s Time To Act !!

16 A NEW PARADIGM Directed From Bottom Up Build on existing Public/Private Partnerships Align Spatial Infrastructure Investments Pool and Leverage Investments Share Data Collections Allocate Costs Fairly Capture Economies of Scale

17 PARTICIPANTS nI-Teams - Develop a state or geographic portion of the NSDI Framework +, Metadata, Clearinghouse, Standards Implement NSDI Principles nFederal Partners Team - Focus Federal efforts and coordinate with I-Teams nFinancial Solutions Team - Explore Business Case and Funding Options for I- Teams and Federal Partners nTechnology Advisory Group - Help Develop Interoperable Networks and Systems

18 I-Teams Federal Partners Team Financing Solutions Team Implementation Strategy Technology Advisory Group FGDC and OMB

19 Leverage and Benefit For All Partners I-Team Leadership Financial Solutions Team Financial Solutions Team I-Team Technical Advisory Group Technical Advisory Group Federal Partners Federal Partners Common Financial Issues Common Technical Issues Common Institutional Issues Common Institutional Issues I-Team
