US Spatial Data Infrastructure:
At the Crossroads & moving forward
US Federal Geographic Data
Committee (FGDC)
  • Evolution (nationally)
  • How to keep the pressure on …?
  • How to percolate it down to the working
    level?
      State initiatives

      Goespatial One-Stop (e-gov)

   Future Directions
   About the track
Create a National Spatial Data
Infrastructure (NSDI) ………


To encourage the collection, processing,
 archiving, integration, and sharing of
 geospatial data and information using
 common standards and interoperable systems
 and techniques

….. and accessible via the web
What is the Federal
Geographic Data Committee?
 Really two answers….
   • Body of people facilitating the
     creation of the NSDI within the US
   • Committee of many federal, state,
     academic agencies and the private
     sector working to actually build the
     NSDI
The Federal Geographic Data
Committee
 Chartered in the early 1990s
 Federal – 19 cabinet level agencies &
  offices
 Many states, regional, & local
  governments participate
 Along with the private sector, NGOs,
  and Academia
FGDC Steering Committee
Cabinet Officers and Agencies:
    –   Interior (Vice Chair)
    –   Agriculture
    –   Defense
    –   Energy
    –   Health and Human Services
    –   Housing and Urban Development
    –   Justice
    –   State
    –   Transportation
FGDC Steering Committee
Cabinet Officers and Agencies:
 –   Environmental Protection
 –   Emergency Management
 –   Library of Congress
 –   NASA
 –   Archives and Record Service
 –   Office of Management and Budget (Vice Chair)
 –   Commerce
 –   National Science Foundation
 –   Tennessee Valley Authority
 –   General Services Administration
     Federal Geographic Data
       Steering Committee
   It’s not just federal…….
    – States
    – Counties
    – Municipalities
    – Non-Governmental Organisations
    – Industry
    NSDI … so where are we today?
    Strong high-level political federal support
   FGDC starts late 1980s – early 1990s
   High level political support
     – OMB Circular A-16
     – NSDI Presidential Executive Order 1994
     – Secretarial involvement in the FGDC
   Extensive partnerships established
   Standards -- nationally, internationally
   Clearinghouse network
   Open policy for federal spatial data
    The Federal Geographic Data
    Committee …. what’s new?

•   Major focus within the Federal
    Government
•   An effort to reach into states and
    communities
•   Need a sustained effort to drive the
    concept and application to the states
    and local governments
The Federal Geographic Data
Committee …. what’s new?

 State   Initiatives

 Geospatial   One-Stop
  –E-gov
  –E-com
WHAT do we mean by state
initiatives ?

In the US, it is a collaborative process for
a state to organize the way it produces,
archives, and shares its digital geospatial
assets

….. a State SDI
Why do we want states involved?

   Helps all levels of government fulfill their
    missions
   Develops links between:
    – The US FGDC and the State and its data
    – The State and the County/City data
   Supports and facilitates:
    – The US NSDI in concept and operation
    – Geospatial One Stop
    – GSDI ……. local to global
What is it not??
   It is not a new agency

   It is not more bureaucracy

   Probably not looking for more money
    – Although ………………????


   Not separate from NSDI or FGDC!!
    What Do State Teams Do?
   Address institutional barriers
   Identify most effective ways to collect,
    maintain and distribute data
   Designate data stewards
   As best we can to fit into NSDI
    recommendations including:
    –   Metadata creation
    –   Clearinghouse development
    –   Framework
    –   etc
The Federal Geographic Data
Committee …. what’s new?

 State   Initiatives

 Geospatial   One-Stop
  –E-gov
  –E-com
What is the President’s
management agenda?

 President’s management agenda :
 …… pathway to a government that
  delivers results….

 Making it … easier, faster, cheaper….
 for all levels of government and public to
 access geospatial data and information
What is the President’s
management agenda?

  E-Government ….. Use of digital
      technology to transform government
      operations to improve efficiency and
      effectiveness

     It is a means to an end; not an ‘end’ in
      itself……….
What is Geospatial One-Stop?

 Goal …..      Provide federal and state agencies
     with a single point of access to geographic
     information reducing/eliminating redundant
     data collection and archives.

 Milestones …..
 •   Identify federal inventory of framework data
 •   Focus on standards
 •   Deploy Geospatial 1-stop portal
So how does does all of this
relate to the NSDI???
  One and the same………
  Another way to promote and drive some of
   the basic cannons of the NSDI
  Really a mechanism to:
    – keep the pressure on …….
    – To keep the principles of the program in
      front of the NSDI advocates and the user
      community
    – To percolate the concepts to the lowest
      levels
FGDC/NSDI Future Directions

 Why do we need to …….?
 •   Added one-stop
 •   1994 & 97 strategic plans developed
 •   New staff director
 •   Really need the local data holdings to adopt
 •   Questions about the coordination of NSDI,
     GOS, and CTM
 •   Attention to Homeland Security
 •   Where do we want to be in 2014?
FGDC/NSDI Future Directions

 What is the process?????
 •   FGDC staff built straw-man
 •   Involve other stakeholders
 •   Consumed the entire FGDC coordination
     committee
FGDC/NSDI Future Directions

 VISION:
   Current and accurate geospatial data
   will be available to contribute locally,
   nationally, and globally to economic
   growth, environmental quality, and
   stability, and social progress
FGDC/NSDI Future Directions

 1. Forging partnerships with a
  purpose

 Expand the governance model
FGDC/NSDI Future Directions

 2. Making framework real

   …generating framework data
   themes that will include
   collection, documentation,
   access, and utilization of data.
FGDC/NSDI Future Directions

 3. Communicating the Message

   …recognized across the nation
   as the primary source for the
   availability and use of reliable
   spatial data
Create a National Spatial Data
Infrastructure (NSDI) ………


To encourage the collection, processing,
 archiving, integration, and sharing of
 geospatial data and information using
 common standards and interoperable systems
 and techniques
