  2. <ul><li> Established in 2003
  3. Coordinate with all levels of government, non-profit and the private sector
  4. Support GIS data development and distribution via GeoStor in an effort to reduce duplication</li></ul>2<br />Create Once, <br />Share it a Bunch<br />
  5. 3<br /><br />Over 200 Datasets<br />
  6. All the distribution Mechanisms<br /><ul><li> Download: zip, clip, ship in multiple formats and projections
  7. FTP
  8. Web Services
  9. Also push data to a number of entities</li></li></ul><li>Arkansas GIS Data <br />“Accessed Globally”<br />Unique Visitors to GeoStor by Country<br />We are globally searched and good at what we do.<br />5<br />
  10. 6<br />Data is open to everyone. <br />This promotes better data, <br />business decisions and <br />economic development.<br />Counties<br />Create<br />State<br />Consumes<br />Share<br />Shares<br />16 counties<br />74 counties<br />28 counties<br /><br />All data providers (273 datasets)<br /><ul><li> 75 Counties

  16. Stats<br />Irrelevant<br />Tell you why on the “Ubiquitous slide”<br />
  17. @CrisisMappers - Sometimes the questions are complicated <br />and the answers are simple. ~Dr. Seuss<br />Question: Why should government provide open data?<br />Answer: It’s the right thing to do.<br />Answer: It’s been paid for with tax-<br /> payer dollars.<br />Answer: arrrrrrrh!!!!<br />
  18. Why Publish? Economic Dev<br /> Mitsubishi doesn’t make a$100M investment without looking at a bunch of maps<br />“Current GIS information provides Arkansas with a strategic advantage in economic development.“<br />-Senator Shane Broadway<br />
  19. 12<br />Why Publish?A picture is worth a 1,000 words<br />2010 Google- Imagery 2010 DigitalGlobe, Pulaski Area GIS, State of Arkansas, GeoEye, US Geological Survey<br />
  20. Why Publish? Disaster will strike <br />December 16, 1811, 0815 UTC (2:15 a.m.); (M ~7.2 - 8.1) epicenter in northeast AR.<br />December 16, 1811, 1415 UTC (8:15 a.m.); (M ~7.2 - 8.1) epicenter in northeast AR.<br />January 23, 1812, 1500 UTC (9 a.m.); (M ~7.0 - 7.8) epicenter in the Missouri Bootheel.<br />February 7, 1812, 0945 UTC (4:45 a.m.); (M ~7.4 - 8.0) epicenter near New Madrid, MO.<br />Effects<br />Some sections of the Mississippi River appeared to run backward for a short time.<br />Sand blows were common throughout the area, and can still be seen from the air in <br />cultivated fields. The shockwaves propagated efficiently through midwestern bedrock. <br />Residents as far away as Pittsburgh and Norfolk were awakened by intense shaking.<br />Church bells were reported to ring as far as Boston, Massachusetts and <br />York, Ontario (now Toronto) and sidewalks were reported to have been cracked and broken <br />in Washington, D.C. There were also reports of toppled chimneys in Maine.<br /><br />
  21. Why Publish? Disaster will strike <br />Eliza Bryan in New Madrid, Territory of Missouri, wrote the following eyewitness account in March, 1812.<br />“On the 16th of December, 1811, about two o'clock, A.M., we were visited by a violent shock of an earthquake, accompanied by a very awful noise resembling loud but distant thunder, but more hoarse and vibrating, which was followed in a few minutes by the complete saturation of the atmosphere, with sulphurious vapor, causing total darkness. The screams of the affrighted inhabitants running to and fro, not knowing where to go, or what to do - the cries of the fowls and beasts of every species - the cracking of trees falling, and the roaring of the Mississippi - the current of which was retrograde for a few minutes, owing as is supposed, to an irruption in its bed -- formed a scene truly horrible.”<br /><br />
  22. Who contributed<br />County filesGood for geocoding<br /> Maintained<br />
  23. Mission Accomplished<br />
  24. Mission Accomplished The work continues<br />More Inputs will result<br />In better data<br />
  25. Why Publish? Ubiquitous use<br />We touch .1% of N and that’s generous. Our desire is to have high quality ARGIS data used by everyone that makes decisions. This means we need helpreaching the other .99% of N.<br />Good at pushing out!!!Need Feedback LoopFlagging System<br />Knowing about user changes ineach system would make for better data.<br />
  26. Why Publish? Better Data<br />Knowing about user changes ineach system would make for better data.<br />Good at pushing out!!!Need Feedback LoopFlagging System<br />
  27. Why Publish? <br /><ul><li> Ubiquitous Use
  28. Economic Development
  29. Disaster will Strike
  30. Better Data</li></ul>Questions? <br /><ul><li> How do we load good data into OSM for the state of Arkansas?
  31. Not alienate current contributors?
  32. Publish (flag) changes from each system?</li></li></ul><li>1. We are interested in helping make OSM better, but don’t want to mess it up.2. We also want to work toward a sustainable solution that can be integrate within our workflow.<br />21<br />
