The North Central All-Hazards Emergency Management Region (NCR) for the State of Colorado contracted Critigen to develop a web-based GIS data portal where the ten NCR member counties could upload their spatial data to populate one common GIS database. Using a customized FME Server interface, users can upload spatial data and have it automatically translated into a common data model. Counties and other jurisdictions also reap the benefits when they download user-defined subsets of data for their own use into their own data schema. Additionally, the composite database supports an emergency preparedness planning tool, providing first response planners access to a continuous, region-wide dataset. In this session, you will learn how Critigen overcame the challenges faced in completing this project and will be given a view into the proposed next steps and potential applications beyond this effort.

  • 1. Integrating Regional Spatial 2010: An FME Information with FME Odyssey Frank Orr Spatial Solutions Consultant
  • 2. Agenda   Introductions   Background and drivers for the project   Collecting information   Application design   System architecture   Challenges   Benefits   Next steps   Future applications
  • 3. Introductions   Critigen– Denver, CO   Safe Software   The Colorado North Central All-Hazards Region   Member Counties Boulder Broomfield Gilpin Adams Denver Clear Creek Arapahoe Jefferson Douglas Elbert
  • 4. Project Background   Emergency management planning focus   Need for continuous region-wide dataset   Coordination with member counties hard to achieve   Homeland Security grant for 2007/2008   Additional grant for 2009/2010
  • 5. Collecting Information   10 counties, all with different needs, desires, agendas
  • 6. Collecting Information   10 very different data schemas, from the very simple to the very complex PGDB Coverages Shapefiles
  • 7. Collecting Information   Everything decided by committee, consensus difficult to reach   Prototype application with 9 data layers   Roads   Parcels Phase 2 adds 15 additional   Parcel Owners layers including:   Census Blocks Parks/Open Space   Municipalities Trails Address Points   Lakes FEMA Flood Zones   Streams Medical Facilities   Fire stations Etc.   Schools
  • 8. Collecting Information   NCR data schema developed to house translated data sets Feature classes, attributes, and domains need to be mapped and translated
  • 9. Application Design   ESRI ArcGIS Server web-based mapping application
  • 10. Application Design   SQL Server SDE database   Password-protected web application
  • 11. Data Upload   Custom web pages assemble required FME Server request strings
  • 12. Data Upload   FME Server translation   Based on 10 FME upload workspaces
  • 13. Data Upload
  • 14. Data Upload   Upload Schema Mapping
  • 15. Data Upload   Custom web pages assemble required FME Server request strings   Typical Upload Request   https://www.gis.ncrcolorado.org/SpatialDirect/ translationServlet? SSFunction=getUploadStatus&reqID=120153610258 40.7794552208857219
  • 16. Data Download   Custom web pages assemble required FME Server request strings
  • 17. Data Download   FME Server data translation   Based on 11 FME download workspaces
  • 18. Data Download Parameters Point & Buffer Extents County Municipality
  • 19. Data Download   Download Area Options   By Area – Drag a rectangle, define on map   By Point and Buffer, define on map   By Municipality – clip polygon   By County – by County field in attribute table   Schema Options   10 different counties plus NCR master schema   Coordinate System Options   UTM NAD83, 4 state plane, LL NAD83   Layer Options   Select any and all available data layers
  • 20. Data Download   Custom web pages assemble required FME Server request strings   Typical Download Request   https://www.gis.ncrcolorado.org/SpatialDirect/ translationServlet? SSFunction=remoteFetch&format=Download_Arapah oe.fmw&fmeParams= --selectedThemes "" --boxMinX --boxMaxX --boxMinY --boxMaxY --queryType POINTBUFFER --pointXcoordinate 493412.821 -- pointYcoordinate 4406154.604 --countyName -- cityName --radius 53019 --destinationCoordSys UTM83-13
  • 21. Workflow Overview Upload Download
  • 22. System Architecture   Two servers, one primary, one redundant   Hosted at separate county locations   Douglas County – Primary   Denver County - Redundant   Automated replication between servers   FileReplication Pro replication software   Automated failover between the servers   DNS Made Easy
  • 23. Challenges   Decision by committee   Lack of previous coordination between counties   Disparities in GIS sophistication   Proprietary data concerns   Expanding beyond initial user community
  • 24. Benefits   Unique planning tool with seamless region-wide dataset   Dialog between counties promotes better coordination   Edge matching   Data schema consolidation   Serve as a model for inter-region and state wide coordination
  • 25. Next Steps   Add more data layers   Medical facilities   Critical infrastructure   Etc.   Enhance existing data layers   Assist counties to identify and fill gaps   Fire stations, schools   Add more viewer functionality   Geocoding service   Advanced spatial queries   Help counties work together to edge match street centerlines
  • 26. Future Application   Other Colorado all-hazards regions   DRCOG and other MPOs   State of Colorado
  • 27. Thank You!   Questions?   For more information:   Frank Orr – frank.orr@critigen.com   Critigen
