Transcript of "Cloud Lessons Learned: Case Studies -- Bill Appelbe, Victorian Partnership in Advanced Computing"

  1. 1. VANZI –“Real world wisdom thru virtual worlds” VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  2. 2. Outline•  Who is VPAC – and our role in Cyberinfrastucture•  Traditional infrastructure planning –  White papers, consultants, and “one off studies”•  VANZI – virtual worlds for infrastructure planning –  Hypothetical case studies – VANZI 2020•  Roadblocks to the VANZI Vision –  Removing those roadblocks –  Projects in the pipeline•  Summary VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  3. 3. VPAC•  VPAC and Cybera are “sibling” organizations –  State-based “Cyberinfrastructure”, “not for profit” –  But significant differences …•  VPAC –  Founded in 2000 –  Employs over 40 technical staff •  Sys administration, software development, engineers, … –  Revenue from contracts and services •  Not “grant-based” anymore •  Major commercial clients including GM –  Partner with many companies and organizations incl. IBM and DDN VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  4. 4. Traditional Infrastructure Planning•  Infrastructure planning for “large projects” (e.g., major provincial/state $), has not advanced much for decades –  Managed by “white papers”, consultancies, “one-off” studies and models/simulation … followed by a “competitive bid” process•  What is wrong with this approach? –  Stakeholder engagement is often limited –  Each project is a “silo” – little or no reuse of data or models –  Limited ability to manage risk or manage infrastructure life-cycle •  By running “what if” scenarios, long-term planning for infrastructure VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  5. 5. VANZI 2020•  Case Study #1 – I want to dig a hole in my front yard… –  Right now, call “dial before you dig” –  They lookup utility data, come out a few days later and spray paint where the pipes and lines are –  If your discover its wrong… good luck getting the data corrected•  In VANZI 2020…. –  You open up the iDigIt.com.ca HTML6 website on your phone –  Authenticate, and see a 3D utility map overlaid on the scene as you walk around –  Find anything else interesting, upload the image, it is analyzed via the utilities software agent and utility databases are updated VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  6. 6. VANZI 2020 (continued)•  Case Study #2 – the City of Melbourne plans to build a new city rail station, called “Southlands” –  Right now, an internal study by DoT then a tender is issued –  A determined citizen can get the 1,000+ page plan by FoI –  Maybe there is a movie created that shows what it might look like•  In VANZI 2020…. –  A 3D interactive public model of the planned station is created •  In the cloud… data, compute, visualization –  Authorized users can do specialized studies and modify the model •  E.g., arborists; or law enforcement looking at crime prevention; traffic flow impact analysis feed data from population growth models VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  7. 7. Roadblocks to VANZI 2020•  99% of the IT technology to do VANZI 2020 exists now! –  But state of the art is typically non-interactive “movies” and custom 2D overlays using google maps•  So what limits achieving VANZI 2020? 1. Difficulty of “real-time” access to GIS data sets 2. Creating 3D interactive models requires “3D game designer” expertise 3. Government and utility conservatism 4. Lack of a “platform”… each GIS project has to build its own IT infrastructure (glue to tie together what exists) VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  8. 8. Removing Roadblocks to VANZI 20201.  Difficulty of access to GIS data sets –  And combining them•  Solution –  National and provincial projects such as the “spatial marketplace” in Australia http://crcsi.com.au •  Web services and infrastructure for data access –  Government regulation requiring utility providers to provide curated data access –  Emerging open standards and peak bodies for 3D infrastructure data e.g., http://www.ucinet.info/ http://www.dspec.com.au/ –  Emerging 3D GIS databases VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  9. 9. Removing Roadblocks to VANZI 2020 (cont.)2.  Creating 3D interactive models requires “3D game designer” expertise•  Solution –  Engage the game development community –  Develop better tools and libraries for GIS data import –  Leverage and collaborate with existing companies with 3D modeling expertise VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  10. 10. Removing Roadblocks to VANZI 20203.  Government and utility conservatism•  Solution –  VANZI models are an “adjunct” to traditional approaches to infrastructure design and planning, not a replacement –  VANZI as a way of “minimizing risk” and “community engagement” –  Agile software development and project management for VANZI projects –  Leverage off early “eager adopters” and case studies VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  11. 11. Removing Roadblocks to VANZI 20204.  Lack of a “platform”… each GIS project has to build its own IT infrastructure (glue to tie together what exists)•  Solution –  A concerted long-term open-source project to build and evolve the VANZI platform –  One project at a time… but with a long-term vision and architecture VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011

  13. 13. The VANZ Initiative•  Achieving the VANZ vision requires a strong consortia•  Solution, form a new “not for profit” entity•  Members of VANZI national consortia –  CRCSi – the national spatial data consortia, 70+ companies –  NiCTA – National ICT Australia (R&D) –  MAV – Municipal Association of Victoria –  VPAC•  A strong VANZI Board track record of government engagement VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
  14. 14. VANZI Projects•  VANZI was only formed about 3 months ago –  So it is “early days”, our website will not be up for a week or so –  For now, contact bill@vpac.org•  Two key large infrastructure projects we are engaging –  City of Melbourne 3D Modeling •  Multiyear project to create an evolving 4D data model of the city and its infrastructure /buildings; for urban planning, tourism, … –  Melbourne Intermodal System (MIS) •  A freight transport and port plan for the city for infrastructure development going forward VANZI Presentation @ Cybera Summit - Oct 2011
