  1. Development of Global Map for GEOSS Societal Benefit AreasUS-09-03a UIC 13th Meeting, Washington 15-16 November, 2009 Yoshikazu FUKUSHIMA Secretariat General of International Steering Committee for Global Mapping Geographical Survey Institute, Japan

  2. Mission of US-09-03a • Align the Global Map Specifications with requirements from Societal Benefit Areas - Disasters, Health, Agriculture, Biodiversity and Water Resources • Foster the use of Global Map in SBAs • Global Map • Full and consistent coverage of land on the Earth • 1 km resolution • Raster layers: vegetation, land-cover, land-use • and elevation • Vector layers: transportation, drainage systems, • boundaries and population centers

  3. Global Mapping Project Who Makes the Global Map? • Each National Mapping Organization (NMO) is responsible for developing Global Map data for their country Coordinating Mechanism • International Steering Committee for Global Mapping (ISCGM) Total 20 members, mainly heads of NMOs Chaired by Prof. D. R. F. Taylor (Carleton University, Canada) Secretariat: Geographical Survey Institute, Japan

  4. Global Map Specifications • Version 1 Specification • Adopted in 1998 at the beginning of production • Raster layers were revised in 2006 • Issues raised on Vector layers • User needs were not collected • Difficulties in data development by National Mapping Organizations • Outdated format (Vector Product Format) • Version 2 Specification was adopted by ISCGM in October 2009

  5. Process of Drafting • Preliminary Study 1 (May 2007) • Questionnaire to Global Map Users and NMOs • Topics: Tiling, data density, formats… • Preliminary Study 2 (April 2008) • New features, attributes and their codes • Questionnaires to NMOs • Circulated three time (Jan-Feb. 2009), (Mar-Apr. 2009) and (Jun-Jul. 2009) • Workshop for Revision of Global Map Specifications in Tsukuba (September 2009)

  6. Workshop for Revision of Global Map Specifications • Open Forum (8 September 2009) • Experts on Environment and Disasters • NMOs • Revision of Specifications (9-10 September 2009) • Data Dictionary and Formats Open Forum Drafting Specifications

  7. Of Interest • Land cover and vegetation released in KML • User friendly formats (TIFF, Shape) • Disaster situation maps • El Salvador Tropical Cyclone (November 10, 2009) • India Storm (October 5, 2009) • Samoa Islands Earthquake (October 2, 2009) • Indonesia Sumatra Earthquake (October 2, 2009) • The Philippines Typhoon (September 30, 2009) • Taiwan Tropical Cyclone (August 8, 2009) • Global Map Symposium, Tokyo • Applications sampler released on DVD • Global Map sessions at GEOSS-AP, Kyoto
