GTRI's Independent Research and
Development (IRAD) Program


Demonstrate an Interoperable Free and Open Source GIS system for First
Responders that provides:


Situation Awareness (SA)


Common Operational Picture (COP)


Peer
-
to
-
Peer/Peer
-
to
-
Server Collaboration (COMM)


Provide the infrastructure to support the GIS system


Access Geospatial Data Sources


Setup a PostGIS database and Web Mapping Service (WMS) portal for
First Responders


Maps and Images


Object data


Interoperability with other GIS systems (Geographic Tool for
Visualization and Collaboration (GTVC), Google Earth, VIPER, etc.)

IRAD Tasks

1.
Research Geospatial Data Sources for
First Responders


Studied
sources of data for first responders including the Homeland Security Information Program Freedom edition,
commercial data compiled by companies such as Navteq, and public data such an Open Street
Maps

2.
Purchase and Set Up a Geospatial Data
Server


Set
up a network server capable of serving enterprise
-
level geospatial data services to
responders

3.
Integrate FalconView with the
Server


FalconView
was previously enhanced to integrate with network services, this task will ensure maximal stability,
usability and security of the
services

4.
FalconView WMS for First
Responders


Leverage
the technology developed in the 2009 FalconView Interoperability IRAD to create a solution to serving data
from FalconView to other users on a
network

5.
Purchase and Set Up a WMS
Server


Set
up a network server capable of serving FalconView data (points, drawings, etc.) to responders on an enterprise
level


6.
Configure and Test FalconView WMS
Connectivity


Test
the FalconView Web Mapping Server with other WMS clients such as GTVC, Viper, Google Earth, Open Layers,
web browsers, Quantum GIS and
ArcMap

7.
FalconView Configurations and
Installations


Create
, configure and test installable package for
First Responders

Geospatial Data Sources for First
Responders


All Open Source FalconView map types and overlays are supported


FalconView’s GeoData overlay can consume WMS and OpenStreetMap data


First Responders enhancement adds the ability for FalconView to
Produce

and
Consume

PostGIS data.


PostGIS is a set of templates and tools on top of PostgreSQL database


PostGIS provides a common framework for multiple instances of FalconView to
collaborate concurrently to each other


PostGIS data can be broadcast through GeoServer in several formats including
WMS


Third party clients can consume WMS, KML, Open Layers and other data
produced from PostGIS


Google Earth, FalconView, WorldWind, Virtual Earth, OpenGeo, etc.

Accomplishments


Deployed development PostGIS database


Modified FalconView to support direct access to PostGIS


Deployed GeoServer webapp on Apache Tomcat server to produce WMS,
OpenLayers, and KML feeds from PostGIS data


This allows applications that supports any of these standards to consume
data produced by FalconView


Modified the FalconView GeoData overlay to add capability to insert, edit
and remove geo objects (points, lines, polygons)


Setup a separate OpenStreetMap server specifically for First Responders.
This allows First Responders to avoid bandwidth restrictions imposed by
the OpenStreetMap project


Examined feasibility of fail
-
over servers for PostGIS and GeoServer, and
stress
-
tested a single PostGIS deployment (using 250,000 queries) to
ensure high
-
availability of the First Responders solution

Remaining Work


Making FalconView accessible to First Responders; example timeline


First Incident
-

First Responders arrive on the scene of an incident


First Responders receive FalconView installations on laptops or
handheld computers


Administrator generates and hands out an “Incident file” that is given to
all First Responders (everyone on the same sheet)


The Incident file includes map data and overlays needed by the First
Responders as well as the address of pertinent map and PostGIS
servers


Second Incident
-

First Responders arrive on the scene of an incident


First Responder is given a new updated Incident file


N
th

Incident
-

First Responders arrive on the scene of an incident


First Responder is given a new updated Incident file
