Transcript

  • 1. Hawaii State GIS Program DBEDT, State Office of PlanningPlanning & GIS in Hawaii: Past, Present & Future Jesse K. Souki Director, Office of Planning State of Hawaii Before the 2012 Hawaii Pacific GIS Conference Wednesday, March 7, 2012
  • 2. Office of Planning Mission & Vision• Mission • To guide the overall growth and development of the State of Hawaii through a statewide comprehensive planning framework.• Vision • To be a model planning office; to be composed of staff who provide superior planning and technical assistance to the State; to improve the quality of life for Hawaiis present and future population through the pursuit of desirable courses of action that effectively address current and emerging issues and opportunities; and to carry out our mission through close coordination with county, state, and federal governmental agencies, the University of Hawaii, and community stakeholders.
  • 3. Office of Planning Structure OP Director Land Use Planning Division Division Geographic Coastal Zone Information Special Plans Management System
  • 4. Hawaii State GIS ProgramHawaii Revised Statutes (HRS) § 225-M: Responsible for…”Planning, coordinating, and maintaining a comprehensive, shared statewide planning and geographic information system and associated geospatial database. The office shall be the lead agency responsible for coordinating the maintenance of the multi-agency, statewide planning and geographic information system and coordinating, collecting, integrating, and disseminating geospatial data sets that are used to support a variety of state agency applications and other spatial data analyses to enhance decision making.”
  • 5. Hawaii State GIS Program History• State leaders understood that Hawaii had finite land resources and that carefully planning new development was essential• 1961 – State Land Use Law – Hawaii was nationally recognized as a leader in land use planning• Mid-1970’s – State planners recognized the value of the newly emerging field of GIS• Late 70’s - The Hawaii State Plan (1978) was being developed using manual map overlays; this was a process advocated by Ian McHarg, whose “1969 landmark book Design With Nature has had a greater influence on the development and application of Geographic Information Systems than any other single event in GIS history. ” (URISA GIS Hall of Fame, http://www.urisa.org/node/394)
  • 6. Hawaii State GIS Program History• Planners realized that imagery could be used for change detection, resource management & planning • The Coastal Zone Management Program (CZM) funded a number of studies to improve resource management techniques including use of remote sensing technology. • While collecting air sample data over the Islands, NASA, using the U-2 airplane, agreed to capture high resolution imagery– this was the 1st generation natural color and infrared imagery of the State. • NASA’s LANDSAT program also captured imagery of the State – this first generation of LANDSAT produced digital remote sensing imagery as 1.1 acre cells
  • 7. Hawaii State GIS Program History• 1977 – CZM funded a first generation of a GIS, the UH CZM Geographic Information & Display System (GIDS)• 9/79 – Jack Dangermond, ESRI, gave presentation to interested State agencies• 3/87 – Jack Dangermond, ESRI, gave presentation to attendees of the first State GIS Conference• 1987-88 – CZM was funding the development of an Ocean and Coastal Management System (OCIMS)
  • 8. Hawaii State GIS Program History• 1987-Fourteenth Legislature, HR 275, HD1 – Request: • DPED chair GIS Task Force composed of interested agencies & companies • Participants: OSP (later OP), DOA, DBF/EDPD (later ICSD), DBED, DOD, DHHL, DOH, DLNR, DOT • Tasks: • Define user needs • Review capabilities and limitations of current GIS technology • Work closely with agencies with experience (UH, C&C, etc.) • Recommend a system that would provide max data w/ min redundancy • Recommend a system that would permit public and private agencies & orgs to access, extract, analyze data
  • 9. Hawaii State GIS Program History• OSP 1988 Report to the State Legislature – State Automated Geographic Information System (SAGIS) • Inventory of current activities/systems: • Federal Agencies: USGS: ESRI; DOA: GRASS; NPS: CAD; USFWS: MOSS • State Agencies: DOT: Intergraph; DOD IEMIS; CZM: OCIMS (ESRI); UH: HNRIS • Counties: C&C – 1.6 million turn-key system by ESRI; Hawaii: MAP; Maui: feasibility study; Kauai: None
  • 10. Hawaii State GIS Program History• OSP 1988 Report to the State Legislature – State Automated Geographic Information System (SAGIS) • Recommendations: • CZM’s OCIMS (ESRI) would be the base of State GIS • Mini Computer running ESRI s/w, housed in EDPD Data Center • OSP, due to its statewide planning and coordination functions, and its multi-agency, multi-disciplinary mission, would be the home of State GIS • B&F EDPD would provide technical & operational support, including funding of shared equipment for GIS
  • 11. Hawaii State GIS Program History• State GIS formed in 1989 • Jointly managed by OP (policy, data) and ICSD (infrastructure, technical support) • Officially recognized in legislation by 1996 legislature in Act 299, which modified § 225-M to formalize the State GIS Program • Original, core users: OP, ICSD, DLNR, DOH
  • 12. Hawaii State GIS Program History• Late 90’s – State GIS helped to create the Hawaii Geographic Information Coordinating Council (HIGICC) • OP obtained a federal grant to help form a Council • Many HIGICC founding members are here – this is a distribution list of a 1998 email from Craig Tasaka, former GIS Program Manager:
