1 Evolution of Partnership and the Geospatial Liaison Network at the USGS Vicki Lukas September 13, 2012 NSGIC Annual Conference U.S. Department of the Interior U.S. Geological Survey

2 An Abridged History of USGS Topographic Mapping Temple Act authorized completion of national topographic survey and cooperative agreements with States National Map Accuracy Standards Issued Federal Geographic Data Committee Established EO established the NSDI The National Map Vision The National Map Customer Requirements Study Engage Users at TNM Conference Topographic Mapping begun in support of geologic mapping With Census Bureau, Completed hydro and trans DLGs for conterminous US 1 st Digital Elevation Model 1 st Digital Line Graph (DLG) 1 st Digital Orthophoto Once-over 24k Topographic mapping completed USGS and Microsoft Launch Terraserver seamless imagery viewing Lidar-derived data 1 st US Topo 24k Added to National Electronic map Elevation Dataset published 1 st Release of The With partners, Reach halfway National Map Viewer of USGS and Partner data Complete 1 st coverage of 24k National Hydrography Dataset mark of 3-year cycle of national coverage Of 55,000 US Topos USGS as PRODUCER USGS as FACILITATOR USGS as INTEGRATOR CENTRALIZED/FEDERAL DECENTRALIZED SYSTEMATIC, FOCUSED State partners contribute funds to USGS to complete mapping State partners contributed funds to USGS for digitizing USGS begins funding partners for data and infrastructure development Co-funding Engagin partnerships for Users core data themes Staff located in 4 mapping centers Mapping Liaisons Distributed on the Landscape Liaison in Every state Budget Reduction = No Backfills

3 National USGS Geospatial as PRODUCER Program Centralized/Federal USGS as FACILITATOR Decentralized USGS as INTEGRATOR Systematic / Focused Mile estones/d Drivers Topographic mapping began in support of geologic mapping st Digital Elevation Model and 1 st Digital Line Graph (DLG) st Digital Orthophoto 1991 Once over topo coverage completed 1994 NSDI established 2001 The National Map Vision published 2003 The National Map Viewer of USGS and partner data released 2005 National Geospatial Program formed of mapping, FGDC and Geospatial One Stop 2008 The National Map Tactical Plan The National Map Customer Requirements Study 2011 National Geospatial Program Strategic Plan st The National Map Users Conference 2011 National Enhanced Elevation Assessment Part tner Role State partners contribute funds to USGS to complete mapping, digitize maps, collect imagery USGS begins funding partners for data and infrastructure development Focused partnerships for core data themes Staffin ng Staff located in 4 mapping centers Mapping Liaisons distributed on the Landscape, later concept of liaison for every state Reduction to liaison budget means no backfills and more multi-state liaisons

4 National Geospatial Program Mission Organize, maintain, publish, and disseminate the geospatial baseline of the Nation s topography through The National Map Foster a general understanding of broad geographic patterns, trends, and conditions through The National Atlas of the United States of America Data services Online maps: US Topo Data visualization Historic Map scans

5 National Geospatial Program Strategic Direction Sharpen focus on our topographic mapping mission High investment layers that define topo mapping: Elevation - Improve data quality and resolution nationally, pursue a national enhanced elevation data initiative Hydrography and watershed boundaries - Work with stewards to maintain data, enhance NHD to support users modeling and business needs, improve user tools Moderate investment - Geographic names: Fulfill the Public Law requirements of the Board on Geographic Names Maintenance investment - Imagery, transportation, boundaries, selected structures and land cover: For reference purposes, maintain coverage by obtaining data from other organizations and suppliers with a minimum investment

6 National Geospatial Program Strategic Direction Emphasis on meeting user needs Priority communities of use Water resources Natural resources conservation Geologic mapping Natural hazards

7 Prioritizing Communities of Use NGP Characteristic Topographic mapping mission User Community Characteristic Applications depend on elevation and hydrography data and products National program scope Applications are nationwide USGS, DOI missions Provide impact and benefit Earth sciences applications NGP products are critical to mission Serves many users Saves lives/property/$

8 NGP Strategic Plan in Action National Enhanced Elevation Assessment and 3D Elevation Program Document user needs for lidar and IFSAR, and the benefits they receive Identify approaches to a national program to meet these needs National Hydrography Dataset Enhancements Enhancements for modeling Dams, divergences, and water quantity and quality measurement stations Hydro Event Management (HEM) tool and training Assessing NHD Stewardship NGAC and potential Mapping Sciences Committee reviews Fault Mapping Landslide Inventory State use of HEM tool

9

10 Strategic Direction for Partnerships Addition of user engagement activities at headquarters and din liaison i network Increase specialization In user communities In topographic mapping data themes Focus partnerships and data acquisition Focus partnerships in liaison network to elevation, NHD, and imagery Address both topographic and ancillary themes at headquarters

11 Community of Use Roles COU Coordinator Develop and manage overall user engagement strategy Organize and lead technical committee Determine user data that needs to be gathered National outreach Liaisons User engineer - provide technical support, document user problems, issues and suggestions Get to know the landscape, expand the contacts Staff technical committees, gather data, help to refine user needs Regional outreach

12 COU Activities Beginning Technical committees started in Jan., 2012 internal USGS users Plan to expand to include states (Geologic Mapping) Goal to collect user needs by Nov., 2012 for use in FY14 planning, also ongoing feedback Plans to expand externally by end of 2012 AWRA, AASG, others

13 Draft Liaison Specializations Partnerships and Coordination (Elevation, Imagery) Coordinate data acquisition/ stewardship and inventory partnerships p Serve as technical expert for partners and users on 3DEP, LiDAR, IfSAR, urban area imagery, NAIP Agreements Management NHD Engineer / Water Resources COU Liaison Coordinate and support NHD stewardship and applications Support users in applying NGP products and services to hydrologic applications, facilitate documentation of Water Resources user needs COU Liaison i for Geologic Mapping, Hazards and Natural Resources Conservation Support users in applying NGP products and services to COU- related applications, facilitate documentation of COU user needs

14

15 Liaison Functions Team PURPOSE - to refine liaison functions to maximize the effectiveness of the network in supporting and integrating NGP and Region goals MEMBERSHIP Liaisons Ostergren, Shivers Supervisors Holcomb, Jones (Weaver), Armstrong, Owens (DiNardo) NGP Product and Services Simley NGP Partnerships Aichele, Fuller, Lukas

16 Approach Review existing liaison definition - DONE Document current liaison functions - DONE Analyze goals and objectives and compare to current functions, define functions to de-emphasize, functions to grow IN PROGRESS Develop staffing plan recommendations NEXT p g p Goal to have new assignments made in Q1 of FY13

17 Changes Moving From 1 point of contact in the state to cover all facets of NGP products and services Liaisons are generalists Broad partnerships and coordination support User needs addressed on an ad hoc basis Moving Toward Multiple (~3) liaisons serve your state to cover all facets of NGP products and services More technical depth available to partners and users Partnerships and coordination support focused on topographic mapping Systematic approach to documenting and addressing user needs

18 Need State Support Flexibility as we work out the new structure Your feedback on what s working and what s not Help us to connect with the COU representatives in your state representatives in your state Communication
