    • Dawn of a New Information Age National Geospatial Resource Center (NGRC) A Capabilities Brief Presented By: Karl Seitz, NGRC Task Lead Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Services
    • Dawn of a New Information Age Overview Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Services provides the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) National Geospatial Resource Center (NGRC) technical support for: •Geographic Information Systems (GIS) activities •ESRI Enterprise license administration •Help Desk •Training •Mapping services •GIS data services •Database design and management •Applications •Office of Trust Services Initiatives, managed by OCIO-IA -2-
    • Dawn of a New Information Age NGRC Mission The BIA‟s National Geospatial Resource Center was established in January 2007 to centralize and standardize geospatial-related data sources and business processes. The NGRC is also intended to create a vital forum to share, engage and collaborate on geospatial information, programs, processes, techniques and available training programs throughout “Indian Country.” The NGRC is also charged with providing geospatial support services in Geo- system integration and establishing and maintaining the Enterprise Spatial Data Clearinghouse for the BIA. -3-
    • Dawn of a New Information Age ESRI Enterprise Licensing NGRC participates in the DOI Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) with ESRI, providing the industry-standard GIS software to qualified applicants at no-cost. In 2009, the program distributed approximately $10.7M worth of software to BIA and Tribal entities, saving the BIA over $9.3M. -4-
    • Dawn of a New Information Age ESRI Enterprise Licensing CY 2009 Accomplishments •$10.7M (GSA) ESRI software distributed •87% of ELA participation was Tribal, an increase of 6% over 2008 •ArcInfo license level continues as the most popular distributed, offering users the most functionality •ArcEditor license level 2nd •ELA streamlined process 2010 -5-
    • Dawn of a New Information Age 2009 Incident Breakdown by Functional Area GIS Helpdesk As a requirement of the ESRI ELA, NGRC provides Tier I & Tier II GIS helpdesk support for any user in the GIS community. Tier III support (ESRI callback) is also provided through the same helpdesk. In addition to Service Center GIS incidents, the GIS helpdesk also provides support to tribes. The GIS Helpdesk saved the BIA over $1.75M in 2007 & 2008. -6-
    • Dawn of a New Information Age GIS Helpdesk CY 2009 Accomplishments •1,296 Helpdesk calls serviced •25% increase over 2008 (998) •User community awareness •Internet reconnect •71% of Helpdesk tickets were Tribal, compared to 63% in 2008 •All incidents logged in to DB •Participation in ELA streamlining -7-
    • Dawn of a New Information Age ESRI Authorized Training NGRC offers basic and advanced ESRI authorized Training at no cost to eligible students. Students must be employees of Federally Recognized Tribal Entities or BIA. Training is conducted a the NIPTC in Albuquerque, as well as coordinated Tribal / BIA Agency locations. ATP Courses are increased in duration by 1 day over those available directly through ESRI. History has shown with our unique customer-base, this added day of training is imperative. •ArcGIS Desktop I (3 days) •ArcGIS Desktop II (4 days) •ArcGIS Desktop III (3 days) •Working with ArcGIS Spatial Analyst (4 days) •Building Geodatabases (3 Days) The NGRC Training Staff has also authored basic and advanced courses. •GIS Orientation (1 day) •Map Design with ArcGIS (4 days) -8-
    • Dawn of a New Information Age ESRI Authorized Training CY 2009 Accomplishments •311 students trained (82 BIA, 229 Tribal) •38 classes conducted (19 field, 19 NIPTC, 6 TRAINN initiative) •NGRC instructors successfully upgraded to ArcGIS Desktop series •Tribal training at Mashpee Wampanoag (newest recognized Tribe at the time) •Successfully updated NGRC-authored courses to latest ArcGIS version •Pursuing new advanced ATP authorizations (Intro to ArcGIS Server) •NGRC Training Staff has a unique arsenal of ATP authorizations •Training Staff awarded „Top 5 Performer‟ multiple times by ESRI •$400K - $500K annual savings to BIA and Tribes over ESRI costs -9-
