  • DGeoShare…UNCHAINEDSteve Mark, Paul van Nieuwkuyk, Barry LoganICIS Good Guys April 4, 2013
  • WHY?
  • VISION ICIS is a leader in the sharing of geospatial information; driving collaboration, integration, adoption and use of spatial data for the social and economic benefit of British Columbia
  • GOAL Get data from contributing members without muss or fuss
  • CHALLENGES… 189 jurisdictions no data model different sources Different capabilities Membership Buy in
  • …CHALLENGES “One to many” “Many to one” time to listen False starts Consistency Currency
  • WHAT?
  • DGeoShare, Defined(The „D‟ is silent… it stands for „Data‟) geoshare [jee-oh-shair] (noun) 1. An FME-powered data brokerage infrastructure connecting ICIS data providers and consumers. 2. Regular and automated services for data extraction, publication, standardization, quality control, and reporting. 3. Feature rich off-the-shelf, self-documenting customization, highly extensible, plays very well with others. (See also: „data-wizardry‟, „parcel-alchemy‟, „address-magic‟)
  • GeoShare, Geographically 146 conduits Weekly transmission > 1.3 million parcels over 136/188 jurisdictions > 1 million addresses over 138/188 jurisdictions
  • GeoShare, Schematically  Extract from 188 providers  Transform to standard  Load cadastre and address DBs
  • Publishing Parcels and Addresses  Open Data Catalogs  ModelBuilder > FTP for ESRI back-ends  FME > FTP for others  Once a week, please!  FME Server checks for updates  Initiates update processes for new data  Emails administrators for stale data
  • Integrating Parcels Inherit standardized attribution from GeoBC Otherwise, best-guess model mapping One jurisdiction, one custodian Individual records are never rejected
  • Integrating Addresses Best-guess model mapping  Conversion to point locations Parsing STREET NAME, NUMBER  Spatial jurisdiction check TYPE minimally
  • GeoShare QC FME mails you the results Link to failed features Link to process documentation At-a-glance statistics = data improvements over time!
  • HOW?
  • It all starts and ends withApple Pie!!
  • Creating a network/pipeline betweenMembers  Accommodate the diversity of our members  Larger urban municipalities/Smaller rural municipalities  Associate Members  Utilities/First Nations
  • Creating a social network betweenMembers Where do we start?  Social Transformers  Build & strengthen relationships  Technical – assessing each Members‟ GIS capabilities/resources  Discussing needs of member – Wear many hats…
  • Setting Priority Areas  Poll our members for desired areas  Rank areas of high importance  Low barrier of adoption  Geography – coordinated site visits  GeoBC/ICIS road trips
