  • Healthy communities: Proactive not reactive Balance between ecosystems Strong governance
  • General Consultation Workflow Diagram

  • 2. Slide 2
  • 3. Band Chief Councillor: Referrals Manager: School Teacher: “I need CED (“referrals”) “I need a pay-per- “I need access to consultation system Fisheries Officer: reports with summary, the maps and and to track staff “I need a3 maps, analysis, multimedia files (spatialized) time spent communications to teach our system to record highlights.” on each culture.” environmental proposal/project.” data.” Teenager: “I want to access to some Cultural Expert: GIS Technician: community data, “I need a better way of CED Staffer: “I’m swamped and calendars, blogs, job lists doing interviews and“I need a better way to need help, but we and our elections for digitizing our track consultation. have no $$ for information.” TUS/TEK/Arch data.” Data entry tasks are training.” Slide 3 rotten!”

  • 5. Slide 5 Less data entry… …more business intelligence Bring it all together, on one page, auto- 1. CIS - Referrals workflow efficiencies magically and accessible by the whole team... …with pop-ups, drop-downs, click boxes, harvesting and canned spatial queries!
  • 6. 2. Function buttons (e.g. print) 1. Proposal info/codes 3. Process phase drop-down5. CRM: govt & proponent 4. Process check listcontacts info (pop-up, dial 6. Engagement level out) 7. Assessor notes 8. Communications log 9. Attachments list with links 10. Layer reports 11. Where? Explore zoomed in (with some GeoBC layers) 10. Where? Zoomed out with traditional territorySlide 6
  • 7. Referrals tools –Tracking current Email harvesting (via  Process tracking unique comm code)  What Engagement Email attachment Level? harvesting  Communication stage Spatial upload to WKT  Elder / NRG committee  Draw, Lat/Long, / Council feedback Shapefile, Geomark  Assessor notes API Rolodex (CRM)  Government contacts  Proponent contactsSlide 7
  • 8. Harvesting demo E.g. Communication Code: #METLA-PA-2287-P  Unique “comm code” in subject or body  IMAP mail standard  Attachments link opens in pop-upSlide 8
  • 9. Geomark demo 9
  • 10. Referrals tools – Tracking next steps Spatial upload to WKT  Fee system  KML  Fee for access External form submissions  Fee for assessment  E.g. Ft. Nelson  Fee letters (e-comm)  Rolodex/CRM  Upload field reports adds/edits by  Multimedia uploads proponents and/or  Staff time tracking government  Upload Archaeology Response letter drafts reportsSlide 10
  • 11. Referrals tools – Reporting current What’s in the Bin?  Map layers exploration –  Filter and print table some, but need to switch Assessor notes to desktop GIS and not much link between CIS Preliminary assessment and GIS… with spatial queries (overlap tables, mini maps)  Can process lots of layers, each with hundreds of features Print report to PDFSlide 11
  • 12. Referrals tools – Reporting next steps Cumulative effects - Show  Post-assessment me all Referrals (by exploration location, by date range, by  Desktop GIS linked to web proponent, by type)… as a app spatial database Map and as a printable  E.g. Quantum GIS <-> Table PostGIS Click to grab KML of any  Links to GeoBC Batch layer, of filtered list Spatial Overlay Engine API Councillor/NRG views  Geomark vs all non- (they sign in to do reviews) sensitive warehouse layersSlide 12
  • 13. 2. CIS – TUS/TEK - Cultural KMCultural knowledge management… …cultural knowledge mobilization Slide 13
  • 14. 2. CIS – TUS/TEK - Cultural KM, cont. Link TUS sites with  Scan/Optical Character Referrals reporting – done Recognition to CIS TUS site upload  Need way to link scan to efficiencies: “Project” – like comm  Digitize interview map code: tus code and then Shapefile  Scan media – tus code upload; Feature key  Build “Explore” interface:  Excel upload; feature  Lists, categories, key and attributes exposed filters  Faceted searchSlide 14
  • 15. 3. CIS – Access, Backup, Security Roll patches as required  Future (system emails)  SSL certificates (esp for Off site backup fees collection)  In another community  Yubikey (password on building usb)  GeoMemes BU host  CIS as Applicance  Mini-server  Back-up unit  Scanner  Barcode printerSlide 15
  • 16. CIS Appliance Governance Survey Tool Linux mini-PCs and Android  Interactive touch table tablets with touch screen for interface for Council stewardship offices chambers to review Referrals, Proposals, TreatySlide 16
  • 17. 4. Communicating with Community >20 member accounts >50 member accountsSlide 17
  • 18. 4. Community, cont. Since we use Drupal (Debian/UbuntuLTS linux, Apache, MySQL)… we can do community websites  Easy to use  WYSIWYG editors  Members-only sections  Newsletter building/mailing/(un-)subscribing Ready to build “History Maps” (e.g. Living Atlas) Ready to develop systems to support Treaty  E.g. Land selection voting, Treaty news, polls, videos Ready to link TUS with schoolsSlide 18
  • 19. 4. Community, contSlide 19
  • 20. 5. Cultivating youth Ready to link Referrals / TUS / Fieldwork with community school programs  Interview Your Elders  Ecosystem/cultural year poster project (with Sierra Club BC)  Record ecosystem data  What’s happening in the territory?  Asset mapping exercises Web programming for youthSlide 20
  • 21. 6. Emergency Preparation & Response Upload Shapefile of community property lines and roads Asset mapping of emergency assets (incl dates for recharge and checking) Plan documentation Community member contacts, locations and needs Responder training tracking Links to Province / INAC Real-time eDashboard (tablet) in times of disastersSlide 21
  • 22. 7. Regional Efficiencies | CFN/GBI Common data server (3rd party provider... map layers? backups?) Community of Practice (Referrals/Stewardship Officers) web support (with a paid facilitator) - example is GeoMemes community of practice websites for health... Partnership with University research group (e.g. FNST-II) Standards, standards, standards (Referrals, TUS/TEK, Fieldwork, Arch) Push for WFS data link (e.g. for Fisheries openings)Slide 22
  • 23. Communities of Practice E.g.Slide 23
  • 24. 8. Regional efficiencies / FNTC Sharepoint is fine, but…  Is it effective for small organizations? Does it provide ‘order-of- magnitude’ increases in efficiency? Hardware purchases  Partnership with Dell, Sun or HP:  Cloud deal? Server appliance hardware deal? Rugged tablet deal? Standards  Referrals – best practices GeoMemes, EcoTrust, GeoBorealis  TUS/TEK – we started with North Coast Skeena First Nations Stewardship Society (NCSFNSS),… Ft. Nelson  Fieldwork – CGWN, Ft Nelson  Archaeology – BC Gov’t, Arch companiesSlide 24
  • 25. 9. CIS - $$$ - CFN group discount Pay it forward  Working for Metlakatla: e.g. Geomark, KML upload code CIS is open-source: available for down-load, with instructions, on Group rate… A question of pace (coding economies of scale):  Steady: step by step improvements as we add one new community per year  Bundle of new features with multiple join-upsSlide 25
  • 26. 10. Why Open Source?  Leveraging big projects Trust Sharing Data Free Empower communities to contribute back  Potlatch idea Decentralized development  E.g. UVicSlide 26 26
