                Spiral Development
                      Strategy
   Spiral One – Initial Operating Capability
      Installation Geo Integration Offices (GIOs) at all PACAF Major
       Operating Bases and certain higher headquarters
      Common Installation Picture (CIP) replaces C-TAB base map
      Regional Installation Picture (RIP) & Mission Data Sets (MDS)
       provide thematic information
      Personal GeoDatabase using the SDSFIE data model
      Geospatial Technologies (GIS, GPS, Image Processing)
   Spiral Two – Enterprise GeoDatabase
      Oracle9i
      ArcSDE 8.3

              Spiral Development
                 Strategy (cont.)
  Spiral development strategy has resulted in a true
   Enterprise Core Architecture with robust capabilities
  Facilitated USAF accreditation and authorization to
   operate core architecture on base network systems
  Allowed for the development of the toolsets and
   extensions that utilize standardized data model,
   datasets and naming conventions
      GeoBEST – Base Engineering Survey Toolkit
      CAPP – Contingency Aircraft Parking Planner
      Defensor Fortis – Air Base Defense Planner
      CGV – Command GeoBase Viewer

                     What is the
            Spatial Data Standard (SDS)?
   Full name is Spatial Data Standard for Facilities,
    Infrastructure, and the Environment (SDSFIE);
    frequently shortened to SDS
   Developed by The CADD/GIS Technology Center
   Geospatial data content and classification (naming and
    attribute standards) standards for CAD and GIS vector
    data – primarily for large scale/resolution data
   Nonproprietary standards designed for use with
    commercially available off-the-shelf CADD, GIS and
    relational database software
   An integrated model of multi-thematic data content
    standards
     Defines data schema (how the data is organized)
     Can be implemented in any GIS or CAD mapping system

17-Aug-10      Integrity - Service - Excellence              9
             Spatial Data Standard (cont) ?
 This nonproprietary design, in conjunction with its
  universal coverage, has made the SDSFIE the standard
  for GIS implementation throughout the Department of
  Defense
 The standard adopted by Headquarters Air Force
  (HAF) Geo Integration Office (GIO) for the USAF
  GeoBase program
 Defense Installation Spatial Data Infrastructure (DISDI)
  will implement SDS data model and standard across
  Department of Defense installations
 Implementation in other Federal, State and local
  government organizations

                SDS User Benefits
 Common GIS and CADD structure for all services -
  Used by Air Force, Navy, Army, US Army Corps of
  Engineers Civil Works projects
 Common data model which permits sharing of data
  between systems
     Command / Control, Simulations, GeoBase Tools
     Standard format isn’t enough (i.e. shapefiles) – need a
      standard naming and attribution convention for data
   Consistency
     Dependent on consistent interpretation
     Example: everyone using SDS must put runway polygons
      in airfield_surface_site
   One training program

                  SDS Data Model
Five Primary Sections:
   Entity Sets - Broad grouping for data management
   Entity Classes - Grouping of data within each Entity Set
   Entity Types - Grouping of items appearing graphically on a
    map or drawing
   Attribute Tables - A relational database table containing
    non-graphic information, or attribute data, providing
    information about a map feature
   Domain Tables - Contains lists of “valid” or “permissible”
    values for specific attributes in an Attribute Table

    a predefined filter to select multiple
    features
   Builds and deletes Domains
   Builds and deletes Relationship
    Classes
   Allows user to add additional
    feature classes at a later time

                PACAF Data Model
   Reasons for adoption
       Command standardization
         Strict SDS adherence to PACAF defined feature classes
         Senior leadership knows what is available across the command
         PACAF personnel can expect a consistent product
       Easy rollup to higher headquarters (PACAF, HAF)
       All program dimensions contained under one roof
       Applications portability
   Common and Regional Installation Pictures
       CIP contains 54 feature classes used for installation mapping
       RIP contains 16 feature classes providing overview of AOR
       Mission Data Sets (MDS) contain 60 utility feature classes

            PACAF Data Model (cont.)
   PACAF GeoDatabase Filter
       SDS Filter is used to generate both Personal and SDE
        geodatabases for all CIP, RIP and MDS feature classes
       SDS Filter consistently generates geodatabases for use by all
        installation Geo Integration Offices
       Not all installations are the same, and do not share all feature
        classes
   PACAF GIO maintains one database with one projection for
    all PACAF data
       9 Major Operating Bases: Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Japan, South
        Korea
       8 Geographically Separated Units: (3) Alaska, (5) South Korea
       160+ Forward Operating Locations in the Pacific Area of
        Responsibility (AOR)

                   SDS Compliance
   HQ PACAF GIO provides guidance to installations regarding:
       Addition of custom fields
       Addition of domain attributes
       Addition of custom feature classes
       PACAF collects anomalies and submits to SDS
   All non-SDS fields now contained in external tables
   Use available domain values
   Non-SDS feature classes appended with four letter
    installation code
   Map correct feature to correct SDS feature class
   Do not combine separate features into one feature class

                          Attribution
     Many fields cannot be attributed
        Information does not exist
        Information does exist but is unknown
        Installation priorities
     For character fields use “NA” if information does not exist
     If information exists for character fields but has not been filled
      out leave blank
     For numeric fields use -1 if information does not exist
     All domains should have a value
        If the best choice is not present use closest value possible
        Use “Unknown” or closest value to “Unknown” for those features
         that might not have a domain attribute
     Primary key must be a unique value and every feature must
      have one
     Installation_id must be populated for every feature in every
      feature class

                     Installation Data
   Grade Cards
       Criteria by which grades have historically been assigned has
        changed with program maturity
         Initially the presence or absence of an attribute determined Y or N
          grade
         Criteria upgraded to 50% of records in a field being populated for Y
          grade
         Currently primary key and installation_id must be 100%, primary key
          must also be unique
         From this point forward we will be grading on 100% completion,
          PACAF guidance for NA, domain population, blank values should be
          followed
       There is a level of subjectivity involved with grading
       Quarterly Data Calls ensure HQ has the most current data

                  Conclusion
 Spiral development strategy plans your GIS investment
 Adhere to USAF GeoBase architecture standards
 SDSFIE is a robust data model and is the GIS standard
  for the Department of Defense
 Mission Infusion and Integration is the goal, not IT
  Acquisition/Implementation
