Overview Geospatial Architecture Effort Geoservices Finder Tie to Data Finder Trust Issues MetroGIS Role for Standards Committee?
Geospatial Architecture Effort Formerly Standards Committee Two documents Why should one government agency duplicate a capability that has already been developed somewhere else?
Broker – one concept The key lies in establishing a web services coordinator Sponsoring the development and maintenance of standards Maintaining a catalog of resources A sort of consumer advocate that monitors and documents reliability
The GCGI feels that Minnesotas State GIS community is ready to embrace a system that helps agencies exchange geographic data and integrate business processes. The proposed system is essential to realizing those aspirations…
Geoservice Finder Joint MetroGIS/LMIC project Develop online catalog for shared geospatial applications and web services Publishers login, enter brief description (like metadata) Users browse and search
Whats Next? Integrate with finding data Trust Issues MetroGIS Role for Standards Committee?
Integrate with Finding Data DNR Data Deli LMIC Data Clearinghouse MetroGIS DataFinder MnDOT Etc. Geogateway (search all, but no catalog)
Trust Issues Will the web service be up when I need it? Will the output change? Can it handle the demand? Will it cease to be supported? Can I enhance it? Can I trust to use it in my application?
MetroGIS Plans Define priority shared web services and applications Define a site that combines searches for data & web services & applications Is this a broker? Is it a portal? Is it a thingy? Implement the site
