Geospatial Information Sharing

OEI National Symposium


Session Objectives
:


The purpose of this session is to provide attendees with an understanding of how
to leverage other agencies’ information holdings and how to transform the
information to meet busin
ess needs that span agencies' business lines.
Panelists from USDA, DOI, EPA, and possibly NOAA, will demonstrate
successful cross agency information sharing, and discuss how to better plan to
do more. The attendees will see how these agencies have come t
ogether to
solve joint environmental management problems. It will raise the awareness of
the audience as to how much other agencies invest in Geospatial analysis of
environmental information, as an example of how to leverage what other's are
investing res
ources in. It will explore how to utilize enterprise architecture
planning techniques to identify and establish information sharing opportunities.
The format will be a moderated 60 minute panel discussion with interactive
question and answer discussion.

Collaboration Opportunities Discussion


-

Id
entify collaboration opportunities around common areas of focus


Meeting Notes

around key topical areas discussed:


Feedback from Recent Agency OMB Submittals of Geospatial Segments



None of the Agencies did as well as they could have



No Agency cross
-
refer
enced or mentioned another Agency
in
submittals




Need to present those “touch points”
of data sharing
across the Agencies



Need to identify a few collaborative projects and frame them at a high level with
depth offered through collaborative use case exampl
es such as:

-

Imagery (National Land Cover Data (NLCD)

-

Water, Watershed Boundary Dat
aset (WBD), National Hydro
Dataset
(NHD)


Authoritative Data Sources
(ADS)
Framework

of DOI



Able to integrate Communities of Interest around key topical (dataset) area



Leverage A
-
16 Dataset framework requirements

-

Around 160 datasets identified, DOI has the most

-

Challenges = no consistent data standard framework for development or access

-

USDA has established a GIS Coordination Committee to ID what data exist



Nee
d to identify
data stewards within federal community



Need to establish consistent protocol for accessing ADS through web services


Investment Reporting



Currently a disconnect between CPIC reporting and what data is being produced



Need to better ID Geo LoB
activities and investment reporting


Geospatial Web Services



Need to address the high cost of hosting web services



Shared web services posting place (virtual library) for fed community needed


Reference Model Refresh



Need to better represent geospatial act
ivities within the federal reference models
during the next refresh cycle


Path Forward



Establish a Decision Framework for information sharing by

identifying:

1)
who

the common stakeholders are

2)
what

common data themes are
, and

3)
wh
at
data needs to b
e shared

4)
when

data needs to be produced/shared

5)
where

these key datasets are to be posted

6)
how

these key datasets are to be
formatted and
accessed



As an initial suggestion for the OEI Symposium, three data themes were
identified, including Water,

Fire and Imagery


Next meeting: Teleconference on Wed. November 19, 2008
