Geospatial One-Stop and The National MapTools for Data Access Governmental Data Access Webinar October 15, 2009 Rob Dollison firstname.lastname@example.org
Geospatial One-Stop (GOS) • Provide online discovery and access to geospatial resources (data, applications, web sites) across all levels of government • Develop standards and models to support the exchange of data and facilitate web services • Promote partnerships among Federal, state, and local agencies • Reduce redundant investments and facilitate cost sharing Make it easier, faster and less expensive to find and use geospatial data
What is Geospatial One-Stop? • Two E-Government Geospatial Initiatives • Geospatial One-Stop (technical geographic component) • Geospatial Line of Business (Fed policy & services component) • Geospatial One-Stop • USGS serves as the Managing Partner • The National Geospatial Program (NGP) office uses GOS to bring increased visibility and implementation of theNSDI
Evolving Spatial Data Infrastructures Services Architecture GIS Portals • Service Oriented • Focus on Content • Integration in Business Process Clearinghouses • Application focus • IT standards • Interoperable • System-oriented • Data focus • Geo-standards • Top down File Transfer • Ad hoc • Data focus • FTP transfer • Bottom up
Geospatial One-Stop (GOS) Federal Data Sets State/Regional/Local Data Sets • Examples • USGS Hydrography • NGS Geodetic Control • BLM PLSS • DoD Defense Installations (DISDI) • Examples • North Carolina • San Francisco Bay Area(BARGC) National Metadata Catalog (GOS) Integrated National Data Sets • Examples • Transportation • Landmarks • Hydrography • Land Use Scientific Knowledge • Examples • Reports • Models • Applications

Search Results Visualization Data set footprints show in map List results are linked to map footprints to allow easy visualization of the coverage area of each dataset.
Spatial Ranking • Includes first iteration of Spatial Ranking • Make spatial searches return local results before global results • Based on USGS-developed algorithm • Looks for how well the search extent matches the footprint of the metadata
Partnership Marketplace • Discover New Data Acquisition Plans • Post Data Requests • Contact Owners – build partnerships and leverage investments
