Our World Is Facing Many Challenges• Growing Population 2050• Social Conflicts• Global Warming Land Cover• Resource Shortages• Loss of Biodiversity 2002• SecurityPopulation Density We Need • Greater Knowledge & Awareness • Comprehensive Planning • Efficiency & Sustainability • Conservation of Nature • Collaborative Action
The World Needs an Approach That Changes How We See Things … and How We ActOur Understanding Deciding Patterns Designing Significance Managing Relationships Consequences Our Behavior Implications Nature Human Helping Protecting Restoring Developing Regulating And the Way We Do Things
The Geographic ApproachA Framework for Understanding and Managing Our Earth Geographic Knowledge Creating Measuring Organizing Holistic Analyzing Comprehensive Modeling Systematic Analytic Visual Applying Planning Designing Deciding Managing Acting Integrating Geography Into How We Behave 4
Geography as a Platform Will Open Our World• Enabling Technology• Embracing the New Patterns• A Culture of Collaboration and Sharing . . . Maps Help Us Integrate and Apply Our Knowledge . . . And Maps Tell Stories about Everything
GIS Applies the Geographic ApproachProviding Tools, Methods, and Workflows That Support Collaboration& Action Storing Measuring Analyzing Work Flow Visualizing Integration Acting Spatial Analysis Collaboration • Better Decisions • Greater Efficiency (Money/Time/Resources) • More Effective Communication . . . Improving the Way We Do Things 6
GIS Is Changing Everything… How We Reason About the World . . . • Patterns • Processes • Relationships • ImplicationsHow We Abstract Our World . . .• Data & Data Models Spatially Integrated Thinking• Models• Workflows• Maps & Globes How We Organize & Communicate . . .• Metadata • Collaboration • Place Based Approaches • Integrated Teams GIS Digital Geographic Knowledge Shared Geographic Knowledge …..Understanding Precedes Action
GIS Is Being Used to Build Information SystemsSupporting Many Workflows and Application Domains Cadastral Information System Cartographic Information System Image Information System Information Systems for • Natural Resources • Land Use Planning • Transportation Logistics Business • Land Management Analysis System • Business Analysis Facility Management • Geospatial Intelligence System • Defense • Visualization • Scientific Analysis • Public Safety • Imagery • Cartography • Asset Management
…And Proving Valuable In Decision MakingExtensively Used in Many Integrated Applications Social Security Conservation Employment Land Records Defense/Security Natural Congestion Business Efficiency Resources Agriculture Water Pollution Land Use Climate Change Disaster Management Biodiversity Human Health Population Development Education Energy Logistics Urban Planning Energy/Power National Security Environment Infrastructure Improving Planning, Management and Decision Making . . . ……Role of State Government becomes Important here
GIS is Being Applied Around the WorldAcross Many Disciplines, Professions and Organizations Network Analysis Resource Inventories Spatial Measurement Land Incident Mapping Management Watershed Site Selection Analysis + Corridor Selection + Engineering Design Logistics Transportation Routing Modeling Demographic Analysis Resource Facility Exploration Management Topographic Analysis Spread & Geoprocess Diffusion Modeling Becoming an Instrument of Evolution . . .
Addressing Common Aspects of Business Behavior Asset Planning & Field Operational Constituent Management Analysis Mobility Awareness Engagement A Complete Integrated System Collect, Organize, Transform Data Get Information Disseminate Get Feedback and & Exchange Data Into Actionable Into and Out of Information Where Make Informed Information the Field and When it is Decisions Needed
Key Consideration Converged solution for Interoperable Standards Database different with Nationaldecision bodies SDI Integrated interoperable Standardization and converged solution STATE GIS Security Integration Protocols with state agencies Sharable Accessible GIS by resources Citizens Accessibility Accessible by state agencies
Typical GIS System Architecture for State Implementation
Road Map for GIS enabled State E-Governance Projects should be Geo-enabled Set standards and framework Emphasis on Applications developed centrally, deployed over central application servers Prioritize data collection and creations Use as federated model for effective sharing and usage of data Focus on Training and Capacity Building on a continuous basis.
