FME World Tour 2014 Customer Case Study - Local Government FME Server Pilot

  1. 1. FME World Tour 2014 Local Government: FME Server Pilot Project A Local Government GIS User Group Initiative Barry Doyle: Roscommon County Council Jon Hawkins: Waterford City Council
  2. 2. The Problem • Lots of people looking to get their hands on LA datasets with the aim of using these within their own systems and apps, integrating these with their own datasets, and in building national views, but.... • 34 independent Local Authorities * • Not all LA’s create and store the same spatial datasets, in accordance with the same schemas, to the same quality standards, in the same formats • Large overhead on LA in processing data requests. 10th April 2014
  3. 3. The Solution • A Local Government Spatial Data Infrastructure (LGSDI) • More than a data warehouse it is a framework of geographic data, metadata, users and tools • Based on the application of standards • Enables data to be discovered, accessed, and used in an efficient manner • Promotes data access and use 10th April 2014
  4. 4. The Question • Will FME Server, implemented as a shared LA service, provide the technical architecture required to support: – Multiple source data format reconciliation, integration, and storage – Transformation of source data to structured schemas – Data validation – Data management and distribution 10th April 2014
  5. 5. Local Authority Spatial Datasets • Approximately 80 spatial datasets created by LA’s though this varies and number continues to grow • Approximately 20 – 30 can be described as Core • Some required under Legislation (Development Plans, Road Schedule, etc.) • 50% created by less than 10 LA’s • 40% of datasets created are identified as being shared with or required by Public Agencies • 40% of datasets created are identified as being shared with the Public 10th April 2014
  6. 6. Who is looking for LA Spatially Referenced Data Other Local Authorities 10th April 2014
  7. 7. ..and what do they want? (Sample set) INSPIRE MyPlan LocalGov.ie Irish Water EPA Heritage Council DAHG Road Schedule Local Authority Bridges Record of Protected Structures Tree Preservation Orders Land Use Zoning High amenity area Landscape Character Areas Parks & Open Spaces Quarries Scenic Views and Routes Waste Permits Landfill Sites Burial Grounds Fire Stations Public Lighting Waste Water Network Water Network Architectural Conservation Areas Water monitoring stations – investigative Bathing sites Water abstraction facilities Industrial sites - Section 4 and section 16 licenses Habitat Mines Planning Register Planning Enforcements Libraries Polling Stations Recycling facilities 10th April 2014
  8. 8. Local Authority 1 Agency 1 Local Authority 2 Local Authority 3 Metadata Transform Validate Agency 2 Agency 3 Transform Validate Merge Current Situation 10th April 2014
  9. 9. Local Authority 1 Local Authority 2 Local Authority N Metadata Transform To LG Schema Validate Spatial Data HubMetadata Transform to LG Schema Validate Merge Discovery View Download Sectoral Data Warehouse Data Download Web Services 10th April 2014
  10. 10. Benefits • Single point of access to LA data • Single version of data • Standardised data • Quality of data • Supports data sharing and re-use • Automation • Reduced overhead on LA in dealing with data requests • Reduced overhead on agencies gathering, processing, and integrating datasets • Supports compliance with INSPIRE requirements 10th April 2014
  11. 11. How we hope to make it work Step 1: Get / receive the data Local Authority Option A: Utilise Existing Desktop Licences to push [post] data Workspace on server Waiting for data Local workspace that can be run manually or by using a bat file and windows scheduled task No issues with firewalls or need for setting up FTP rules or fixed IP’s
  12. 12. Step 1: Get / receive the data Local Authority Option B: Reference datasets directly Local Authority Option C: Email with attachment Output of Step 1: Data
  13. 13. Step 2: Validate and load Scheduled workspaces Valid Yes No PostGIS Load, Merge and TimeStamp Generate Error Report.htm Daily Periodically Workspaces to check data is current, by using testers that check the last upload date was within agreed limits
  14. 14. Step 3: Transform, manipulate, enhance and present Downloads REST Services Notifications Present and deliver how the data is needed Define and set standards Web Services Self-serve Distribute
  15. 15. Other things we hope to do Utility Data Current Situation: Separate contracts with separate Local Authorities Local Authority Local Authority Local Authority Hope to investigate: One central contract
