1 Building Blocks for Implementing the National Spatial Data Infrastructure Hank Garie Executive Director (703) 648-5569 Geospatial One Stop

2 Making it: –Easier –Faster –Cheaper Geospatial One Stop Purpose of the project: For all levels of government and the public to access geospatial information.

3 Raises the visibility of the strategic value of geographic information. Increases federal agency accountability for the stewardship and sharing of geospatial resources. Establishes a collaborative model for directing an intergovernmental initiative. Geospatial One Stop

4 Framework data standards Portal development Existing Data Inventory Data Acquisition Marketplace Geospatial One Stop Project Modules

7 Establish web-based Portal for access to maps, data, and map services –Enable intuitive discovery of geospatial data –Rely on standardized web services & metadata Assist federal agencies to establish web services for Framework data Use Geo-Partnerships to bring state/local/tribal providers on-line GOS Portal & Web Services Goals

8 Support the business of government Support decision making Will improve our collective ability to: Geospatial One Stop

9 Map Services Feds Cities Counties States Support Government Business Support Decision Making Tribes User Community Data Searches Map Services Visualization GOSPortal DisasterManagement HomelandSecurityRecreation One Stop Smart Growth Citizen Services Watershed Management Other E-gov Initiatives

10 Expectations Standards Metadata Stewardship Incentives Tools Training Software Grants Geo-Partnerships Outcome: improved public services through stewardship and data sharing.

11 ... A National, Distributed GIS Implementing Geo- Partnerships Will Lead To: Feds Cities Counties States Tribes Private Sector

12 Data - gathered & maintained by jurisdiction Framework standards - harmonization of data content models Metadata - consistent and accurate descriptions of data On-line services - standardized access methods GOS Portal - gateway to distributed data holdings, map services, and metadata Users - professionals viewing and analyzing data; citizens accessing map services Decision makers - leaders acting upon geospatial information Layers of GOS Information Architecture GOS focus
