  • Title: Southeast Alaska GIS Library : GIS Data From 55 Degrees North to 60 Degrees North
    Descriptive info: SEAK HYDRO DATABASE.. Return.. January 1st, 2012.. A partnership for the collaborative stewardship of the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) has been established at the University of Alaska Southeast (UAS).. NHD is the surface water component of the National Map; a cooperative effort among the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and other Federal, State, and local partners to improve and deliver topographic information to the nation.. In 2002, the Forest Service entered into an agreement with USGS to adopt the NHD as the Forest Service standard dataset for streams in the Natural Resource Information System (NRIS) suite of corporate data applications.. In 2008, all Forest Service applications, including NRIS, were combined to form Natural Resources Manager (NRM) to provide better coordination and interoperability between all Data Center applications: the NHD is fundamental to this interoperability.. As hydrography is an important component of Alaska s GIS fabric and often is the foundation for other spatial layers, a data partnership, dubbed the Southeast Alaska Hydrography Database (SEAK Hydro) project, was stood up in 2011 by the Forest Service, UAS, USGS, and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF G) in order to increase efficiencies and reduce costs associated with updating and maintaining the NHD, as well as provide local entities with hydrography attributes meeting a full range of local business requirements.. Current SEAK Hydro stakeholders include USGS, ADF G, the Tongass National Forest, and UAS.. SEAK Hydro will soon provide services to entities beyond southeast Alaska including the Chugach National Forest and the Kenai Watershed  ...   fish barriers, and contaminants.. SEAK Hydro data comes in a straightforward, user-friendly format that is less costly to maintain than directly managing the NHD through USGS editing tools.. UAS spatially tracks incoming edits from its partners thereby minimizing conflicts between editors from different agencies or offices.. NHD, in turn, is updated from SEAK Hydro data by way of services provided by specialized staff at UAS.. The leadership offered by UAS reduces the duplication of efforts within the public sector.. SEAK Hydro data is publically available through the UAS GIS Library.. The project is currently seeking new partners who are interested in providing additional data and/ or assisting with the editing process as well as entities that are in need of services for uplifting their hydrography information into NHD.. Funding assistance to support SEAK Hydro is also desired.. SEAK Hydro will contribute to building a better GIS in southeast Alaska and beyond by providing the best available information to partners and stakeholders while ensuring the NHD is accurate, reliable, and up to date.. In July of 2011, SEAK Hydro received a.. Special Achievement in GIS award.. at the 2011 Esri International User Conference in San Diego.. The award is given annually to recognize outstanding work with GIS technology and the SEAK Hydro project stood out from more than 100,000 others.. ADF G, TNF, UAS and USGS were acknowledged as co-recipients of the award.. Please contact the.. SEAK Hydro Technical Steward at UAS.. for further information about the SEAK Hydro project..

  • Title: Southeast Alaska GIS Library : About the Library
    Descriptive info: Primary Purpose of the GIS Library.. The goal of the GIS Library is to promote the use of regional geospatial data and applications to further research and improve management of public resources in Southeast Alaska.. In addition, the Library provides a framework for coordinating the acquisition and sharing of spatial data between the public, researchers, educators, and managers.. A high-level summary of the GIS Library's core purpose is confined to four primary requirements including regional data distribution, outreach, data standardization and collaboration.. The core GIS Library requirements are described below.. Data Distribution.. One of the fundamental requirements on which the GIS Library was founded is the sharing of geospatial data among partnering agencies and public users.. Sharing these datasets across partner agencies facilitates a greater return on investment for publicly funded datasets by providing benefit to additional users beyond the steward agency.. Furthermore, the practice of sharing the data among users with similar spatial interests helps to foster collaboration and ultimately enhance further versions of the data products.. What the GIS Library is trying to facilitate through the distribution of geospatial datasets is an environment where the partner agencies and the public alike have access to the same data in the hopes of using those data as a foundation for coordinating regional resource management efforts.. This includes providing current and authoritative datasets; collating data from agency collaborators (e.. via replication from partners) for subsequent distribution; providing distribution mechanisms that meet user requirements; providing public access to digital assets where allowable; providing a complete (as is feasible) regional snap-shot of the data that is available within Southeast Alaska (note: this may mean redundancy in some instances that will be addressed on a per case basis).. Benefits of this type of distribution model are evidenced by the collaboration between the USGS, USFS and the ADF G, whereby these agencies are maintaining and using (via the GIS Library) the same regional hydrographic data to collaborate on issues relating to stream access or watershed management.. This collaboration ultimately benefits other library users/stakeholders by this hydrographic data being publicly available so the public and/or non-partnering agencies alike can access these data and embark on autonomous projects or collaborations while maintaining regional data consistency.. This example illustrates how the premise of distributing regionally authoritative datasets via the GIS Library has potential shared benefits for a wide variety of applications and collaborations.. Standardization.. A key goal of the GIS Library is the application of standardized conventions to the Library's digital assets.. Standardization for  ...   the GIS Library's datasets are that all of the geospatial datasets will adhere to a single spatial reference system (where applicable); all of the geospatial datasets will have FGDC compliant metadata; and all of the geospatial datasets adhere to an agreed naming convention that is intuitive, persistent through time, and consistent with agency schema requirements.. Collaboration.. Interagency collaboration is the cornerstone on which the GIS Library was founded and continues its existence.. Continued funding agreements which support GIS Library operations, as well as ongoing participation in the development of the GIS Library illustrates that interagency collaboration is the life blood of the GIS Library.. This collaboration is critical in remaining relevant across partnering agencies and ensures that the GIS Library is fluent with regional user/stakeholder requirements.. Despite there being a limited number of functional aspects relating to collaboration within the GIS Library's technology system, it is important to document the businesses requirements relating to collaboration to ensure due consideration is given to those requirements by any future stakeholder, service provider, or system administrator.. The GIS Library's goals for ongoing collaboration include providing mediums for contributor and user collaboration (e.. shared infrastructure); promoting and facilitating interagency participation, facilitating data contribution and stakeholder engagement; promoting inter-jurisdictional requirements/collaboration at local and federal levels; and to establish long term funding solutions to support the ongoing operation of the Library.. A functional example of GIS Library collaboration is the provision of a workspace/database that allows the USFS and ADF G to jointly update and maintain a core regional hydrographic dataset that is published via the GIS Library.. Outreach.. The Library has identified that outreach through various means is essential for sustained support and growth within the regional user community.. Forms of outreach include regular interaction/communication with the GIS Library's user community, technical support and training for stakeholders, as well as demonstrations of the content that the GIS Library offers.. Outreach goals for the GIS Library include developing products and services for regional GIS users; acting as a central reference for other regional GIS contacts; publishing an overview of the GIS Library's background and purpose on its website; providing contact details for GIS Library personnel; providing tech support for use of the GIS Library's website; providing tech support for data that are available from the GIS Library; conducting training and demonstrations of the GIS Library's data assets and website for users/stakeholders; facilitating workshops or conferences for regional GIS users; and giving presentations at expert forums.. with questions or comments on the information above..
