Make someone else shine! • Win-win: Personal development and contributions to the profession! 1

  2. The Geospatial Approach to Wicked Problems Danielle Ayan, GISP, GIS@GTRI Program Director Secretary, URISA (Urban Regional Information Systems Association) International Former Board Member, National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) Class of 2012, Institute for Georgia Environmental Leadership (IGEL) Former Chair, Georgia Geospatial Advisory Council (GGAC) Former Chair, Georgia GIS Coordinating Committee (GISCC) Former President, Georgia URISA Oct 2012 2

  3. Wicked Problems • Simply put: Difficult to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements • Every wicked problem is essentially unique • No well-described set of potential solutions • Every implemented solution has consequences • Every wicked problem can be considered a symptom of another problem • Examples of Wicked Problems: Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Health, Education, Safety, Trans Geospatial technologies leveraged 3

  4. The Geospatial Approach to Wicked Problems • By "inspecting 'wicked problems' with geospatial goggles," complexities and interdependencies can be exposed, better defined, dissected, better managed through the geospatial approach and reassembled for overall improvements Geospatial technologies leveraged 4

  5. The Geospatial Approach to Wicked Problems Content of the human mind can be classified into 5 categories: • Data: raw source content • Information: data that are processed to be useful; provides answers to "who", "what", "where", and "when" questions • Knowledge: application of data and information; answers "how" questions • Understanding: appreciation of "why“ • Wisdom: evaluated understanding Geospatial technologies leveraged 5

  6. The Geospatial Approach to Wicked Problems • National Geospatial Technology Center of Excellence (GeoTech) + Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) • Nov 3 – 5, 2013 | www.spatialplexus.com Geospatial technologies leveraged 6

  7. The Geospatial Approach to GEORGIA’s Wicked Problems • Georgia Geospatial Advisory Council (GGAC): Briefings • The GGAC 2010 Georgia Geospatial Audit: Status Report and Recommendations “is by far one of the best reports I have received. Thank you and the Council for all of the hard work.” – Senator Carter •  “I see a lot of purpose in what’s being proposed here. What will be key is applying geospatial technologies and resources to improving Georgia’s water and transportation issues.” – Senator Tolleson 7

  8. Wicked Problems: Water Geospatial technologies leveraged 8

  9. H.B. 169 Catalyst (Geographic Challenge) • Original objective: Provide accurate Flood Insurance Rate Map information to property owners • 2 issues: Accuracy of data + inequitable ability to notify citizens 9

  10. Georgia Geospatial Advisory Council (GGAC): Legislation: http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/sum/hb169.htm Georgia Geospatial Audit: Status Report & Recommendations: http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/sum/hb169.htm O.C.G.A § 12-5-9 (b)(3) “The council shall audit Georgia’s geospatial capabilities at county, regional, and state levels. The audit shall contain a complete status update and recommendations for utilizing the geospatial capabilities in Georgia tomeet Federal Emergency Management Agency notification requirements, recommendations for moving forward to achieve governmental data inter-operability and enhanced delivery of services to Georgia citizens through the geospatial approach, and any other information determined by the council to be necessary for the advancement of geospatial technology.” 10

  11. H.B. 169 Catalyst (Geographic Challenge) • Original objective: Provide accurate Flood Insurance Rate Map information to property owners • 2 issues: Accuracy of data + inequitable ability to notify citizens • Requires the below input: Buildings, building addresses or parcel boundaries (that fall within or intersect) accurate floodplain boundaries = properties potentially impacted by flood insurance rates 11

  13. H.B. 169 Catalyst (Geographic Challenge) • Original objective: Provide accurate Flood Insurance Rate Map information to property owners • 2 issues: Accuracy of data + inequitable ability to notify citizens • Requires the below input: Buildings, building addresses or parcel boundaries (that fall within or intersect) accurate floodplain boundaries = properties potentially impacted by flood insurance rates 13

  14. Inaccurate Geospatial Data Withlacoochee River Wastewater Treatment Plant, located outside the FEMA 100 year floodplain ($94 million expense to relocate). 14

  15. GIS: Elevation Data (Less Accurate) 15

  16. GIS: Elevation Data (More Accurate) 2010 LiDAR acquisition in Towns County resulted in over 300 properties being removed from floodplain boundaries (red squares above) saving >$1M over 10 yrs. 16

  17. Inequitable Elevation Data Across the State Combined with existing data, the State is currently ~30% covered by high-resolution elevation data 18,300 mi2), with ~59,500 mi2 remaining. 17

  18. Cost of Incomplete & Inaccurate Data “Insurance Commissioner John W. Oxendine said damage from flooding across north Georgia that began on September 18, 2009 reached an estimated $500 million in losses, most of that amount uninsured.” 18

  19. H.B. 169 Catalyst (Geographic Challenge) • Original objective: Provide accurate Flood Insurance Rate Map information to property owners • 2 issues: Accuracy of data + inequitable ability to notify citizens • Requires the below input: Buildings, building addresses or parcel boundaries (that fall within or intersect) accurate floodplain boundaries = properties potentially impacted by flood insurance rates 19

  20. Inequitable Statewide Capabilities:Georgia Geospatial Audit • Response: 140 of 159 counties (88%) GIS Address DB (61%) GIS Buildings DB (21%) GIS Property DB (75%) eNotification Capabilities (16%) Thanks to: Geospatial technologies leveraged 2010: Citizen notification vulnerability map (i.e., counties with GIS data and ability necessary to notify citizens) 20

  21. H.B. 169 Catalyst (Geographic Challenge) • Original objective: Provide accurate Flood Insurance Rate Map information to property owners FINDINGS: the State of Georgia is not prepared to handle the original intent of the policy: provide accurate information to property owners based on proximity to floodplains. 21

  22. Georgia Geospatial Advisory Council (GGAC): Legislation: http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/sum/hb169.htm Georgia Geospatial Audit: Status Report & Recommendations: http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/sum/hb169.htm O.C.G.A § 12-5-9 (b)(3) “The council shall audit Georgia’s geospatial capabilities at county, regional, and state levels.

  23. Silos of Geospatial Excellence in GA BLLIP, Georgia’s GIS properties’ database, generated $43 million in revenue by selling surplus property and saved more than $8.8M through lease renegotiation and/or consolidation. SelectGeorgia(GIS-driven web tool) has resulted in a 75% reduction in software maintenance + 70% reduction in maintenance labor. Used to support projects producing >$5.6 billion in new capital investment and the creation of >27,500 new jobs Geospatial Case Studies from Across Georgia: https://www.georgiaspatial.org/home/documents/2010-geospatial-case-studies-across-georgia Geospatial technologies leveraged 23

  24. Utilization of GIS in GA • Main users and uses • GDOT – Road infrastructure, 511, wet lands, crashes • GaDNR – Parks, Wildlife Resources, Historic preservation • GEMA – Emergency planning, State Hazard Mitigation Planning • GDOC – Facility management • DPH – Tracking health statistics to target interventions, access to health care • DCA – Community planning, Census verification, LUCA, housing programs • State Property Officer – BLLIP • DOAS Risk Management – BLLIP • Regents – Planning and analysis of student enrollment • Local Governments – Property tax collection, land use planning, management of city services and emergency response • RDCs – Data creation and upkeep for local governments • DOE – Broadband of Peachnet for remote academics • Yet, still fragmented and uncoordinated statewide 24

  25. Geospatial Coordination in Other States • NC: NC OneMap + Geospatial Multistate Archive and Preservation Partnership • TN: GIO + Statewide parcels (self-funded through audits) • AK: Geospatial Information Office + Enterprise geospatial application services • OH: Capital funding for geospatial data development • OR: GIO + enterprise application services + NCEES Model Law and Model Rules for geospatial data development 25

  26. Fundamental Characteristics of Successful Statewide GIS Coordination GIS coordination efforts across states • Full-time paid GIO 29 • Clearly defined authority 32 • Formal tie to state CIO 28 • Involved political champion 24 • National Spatial Data Node 29 GA Yes (unfunded) • Work with local governments 33 GA ? • Sustainable funding 13 • Coordinator contract authority 31 • Primary Federal program contact 28 26

  27. Where Does GA Stand? • Georgia, compared to other states regarding Best Practices defined by NSGIC’s Fifty States Initiative (2007) 27

  28. GGAC Status Report & Recommendations • Formalize a geospatial advisory council to the General Assembly or state governmental entity ($0*) • H.B. 369 passed both sides unanimously in 2012, but no champion to take it to the floor • Establish Georgia Geospatial Information Office • [Pending] Execute statewide master agreement(s) for geospatial software/services/resources ($0) • Develop a digital, statewide parcel GIS database (i.e., “property” database) • Develop a current (2009 or more current), high-resolution, statewide elevation GIS database 28

  29. Opportunities • Ops: Change the conversation: No longer about consolidation efforts to reduce expenses (server hardware or energy costs), but how to establish a proper foundation for optimizing operations (ex., cloud-based) • Biz Needs: Tie GIS to issues .. Geosolutions! • Develop critical statewide geospatial databases not currently available for Georgia, including land parcels, addresses, high-resolution elevation, water supplies, utilities, inland bathymetry … 29

  30. Opportunities • Generate information to support decision-makers and achieve state objectives • Develop geospatial standards • Build web mapping services; shared geospatial application services • Geospatial practitioners work together (ex., GIS work with surveyors re: digital submittal rqmts + Clerk of Courts e-filing) 30

  31. Opportunities • Benefit from economies-of-scale data/software/services acquisition • Strategically manage the state’s infrastructure under one COP, identify stewards of its assets and facilitate data accessibility, flexibility, availability and reuse across lines of business 31

  32. Opportunities • Improve citizen access to data, coordinate multiple datasets and spatially enable tools for consuming data • Use cloud-based models for service delivery • Coordinate with peer organizations and consultants for opportunities • Evaluate scalability, performance, security and portability of cloud service models • Measure benefits, costs, risks 32
