Enabling Use of Government Tabular Data in a Geographic Context<br />U.S. Federal Geographic Data Committee <br />2009 CAP Grant, Category 4<br />
FGDC Cap Grant, Category 4<br />Easy and productive access to geographic, tabular government data<br />Reference location by Address, Code, or Coordinates<br />Shared Public Web Service<br />Discoverable, Accessible, and Applicable to geographic contexts<br />
Project Goals<br />Enable more data to be consumable in a geographic context<br />Increases in geo-enabled data will cause an increase in demand for geographic applications and education <br />Geo-enabled data creates a positive externality for the entire ecosystem of agencies and companies that leverage or provide geospatial technologies<br />Mapping should be an option for every data work flow when there is a geographic component available (80-90% of the time)<br />Make data available to a variety of workflows (spreadsheet data to GIS and GeoWeb) and provide dynamic loops (GIS data back to spreadsheets and GeoWeb) allow for collaboration and data sharing<br />
Proposed Solution<br />Deliver a platform to provide easy georeferencing of non-spatial data<br />Quality Assurance and Error identification and remediation of contributed datasets<br />Catalog and store taxonomy of existing boundary data sources<br />Add OGC Catalog Services for the Web (CSW) support<br />
CAP Added Capabilities<br />GeoCoding Engine for Street Address georeferencing<br />GeoJoin Engine for polygonal region georeferencing<br />Spatial, hierarchical aggregation<br />Federated search and discovery<br />OpenSearch and GeoRSS <br />OGC Catalog Services for the Web (CSW)<br />
