  • The Carbon Project - Spatial and Situational Awareness Conference

    1. 1. Current State of “Geospatial” and the Homeland Security Mission Jeff Harrison, President and CEO, The Carbon Project [email_address] , www.thecarbonproject.com
    2. 2. Topics <ul><li>Geospatial “Networks” </li></ul><ul><li>Interoperability </li></ul><ul><li>Services Oriented Architectures (SOA) </li></ul>
    3. 3. Geospatial “Networks” <ul><li>Dial tones on Geospatial Networks are buzzing </li></ul><ul><li>Current environment evolving quickly – much like wireless service coverage </li></ul><ul><li>Each big Geospatial Network “provider” trying to get as many people as possible on their network </li></ul>
    4. 4. Geospatial Networks So what do these Geospatial Networks look like? Microsoft Virtual Earth Google Maps and Earth Yahoo! Maps DigitalGlobe ImageConnect OGC SDI 1.0 Many others…
    5. 18. Interoperability ESRI Shape Files MapInfo MIF/MID Autodesk DXF Homeland Security Users <ul><li>OGC SDI 1.0: </li></ul><ul><li>Geography Markup Language (GML) </li></ul><ul><li>Web Mapping Service (WMS) </li></ul><ul><li>Web Feature Service (WFS) Basic & Transactional </li></ul><ul><li>Filter Encoding </li></ul><ul><li>Web Coverage Service (WCS) </li></ul><ul><li>Catalog Service for the Web (CS-W) </li></ul><ul><li>Services Capabilities </li></ul><ul><li>Microsoft Virtual Earth: </li></ul><ul><li>Roads, Aerial, Hybrid, Hillshade </li></ul><ul><li>3D </li></ul><ul><li>BirdsEye </li></ul><ul><li>Geocoder </li></ul><ul><li>Yahoo! Maps: </li></ul><ul><li>Roads </li></ul><ul><li>Aerial </li></ul><ul><li>Transparent roads </li></ul><ul><li>Google Earth: </li></ul><ul><li>Roads, Aerial, Terrain </li></ul><ul><li>KML, KMZ </li></ul>Others…
    6. 19. Geospatial Networks Yeah, but those are just maps. What about actual data? Microsoft Virtual Earth Google Maps and Earth Yahoo! Maps DigitalGlobe ImageConnect OGC SDI 1.0 Many others…
    7. 26. Geospatial Networks Can I use the Geospatial Networks in GIS? Microsoft Virtual Earth Google Maps and Earth Yahoo! Maps DigitalGlobe ImageConnect OGC SDI 1.0 Many others…
    8. 27. Software tools can access the Networks – like CarbonArc® PRO for ESRI ArcGIS 9.2 CarbonArc PRO supports SDI 1.0 services like WMS, WFS, WFS-Transactional, WCS, Filter Encoding, Gazetteer, GML, GMLsf, CS-W plus Virtual Earth’s Network
    9. 28. MSVE Extension to CarbonArc® PRO allows VE services to fully integrate with the GIS Use Microsoft Virtual Earth tiles as a dynamic functional layer within the GIS
    10. 29. Geospatial Networks OK, but what about accessing just the data I need for Homeland Security? Microsoft Virtual Earth Google Maps and Earth Yahoo! Maps DigitalGlobe ImageConnect OGC SDI 1.0 Many others…
    11. 30. The area around New Orleans just after Hurricane Katrina
    12. 32. Bay St. Louis just after Hurricane Katrina
    13. 34. Looks good, just the GML I need - and you used a SOA to do it.
    14. 35. Geospatial Networks How about finding data in a Geospatial SOA? Microsoft Virtual Earth Google Maps and Earth Yahoo! Maps DigitalGlobe ImageConnect OGC SDI 1.0 Many others…
    15. 37. Nice, but is there really any GML out there?
    16. 38. Yes. For example, the United States NSDI WFS provides Roads, Hydrography, and Governmental Units using the DHS Geospatial Data Model
    17. 39. There’s also CGDI WFS and GML for almost every province in Canada
    18. 40. Geospatial Networks OK, but what about “geospatial” analysis for Homeland Security? Microsoft Virtual Earth Google Maps and Earth Yahoo! Maps DigitalGlobe ImageConnect OGC SDI 1.0 Many others…
    19. 41. Scenario – Toxic Plume T+1 T+2 T+3 T+4 T+5 A toxic plume appears! Its projected progress is documented as a GML file. Analysts use ArcGIS to view the projected dispersion area with Microsoft Virtual Earth as a base map.
    20. 42. Scenario – Toxic Plume Analysts use CarbonArc PRO and SDI 1.0 to see what infrastructure might be affected. Data is imported from various agencies and commercial vendors using Web Feature Services (WFS).
    21. 43. Scenario – Toxic Plume
    22. 44. Scenario – Toxic Plume
    23. 45. Scenario – Toxic Plume
    24. 46. Scenario – Toxic Plume
    25. 47. Scenario – Toxic Plume
    26. 48. Scenario – Toxic Plume
    27. 49. Scenario – Toxic Plume
    28. 50. Scenario – Toxic Plume
    29. 51. Scenario – Toxic Plume OK, OK. One final question…can you do this type of analysis ‘for real’?
    30. 52. Scenario – Toxic Plume Yes, here is an example from the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure
    31. 56. And there’s lots more going on with Transactions, distributed data update and more,,,
