Retaac l.jpg
RETAAC

  • Renewable Energy ..Transmission Access .. Advisory Committee(parallel to RETI process in California)

  • Provides guidance to Gov. Gibbons on new electrical transmission in Nevada

    • Essential for getting renewables to market

    • Complicated and expensive infrastructure

    • Ultimately affects consumers financially


Google l.jpg
Google

  • Wildly successful Web search engine

  • Free Web-based eMail: gMail.com

  • Popular Web mapping engines

    • GoogleMaps (browser only)

    • GoogleEarth (download)

  • Lesser known applications, free on Web

    • Google Calendar

    • Google Docs

    • Google Sites


Cartograph l.jpg
CartoGraph

  • Innovative, all Web-based GIS/DM system

    • Comprehensive data management

    • Flexible, personalized map composition

    • Easy sharing of both data & maps… Cartographic “YouTube”

  • Connectivity to other GIS approaches

    • ESRI: ArcGIS and ArcView (via shapefiles)

    • Google: Maps and Earth (via KML)

    • coming: MapInfo (via .mid/.mif)


Slide5 l.jpg
NBMG

  • Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology:the Federally-mandated “State Survey”

  • Provides cartographic support to State

    • Division of Minerals

    • Division of Emergency Management

    • other offices

  • Special projects for Feds, counties

    • Bureau of Land Management

    • U.S. Geological Survey

    • Washoe, Clark counties


Slide6 l.jpg
NBMG

  • Special assignment to RETAAC

    • Established expertise in “things spatial” for Nevada

    • Familiarity with renewables topic through GBCGE

    • Neutral broker among Federal and State agencies, NGOs, commercial interests, and the public

  • Specific duties

    • Assist participants share spatial data

    • Create shared cartographic products

    • Perform spatial data analysis

    • Assist with final publication

RETAAC

  • Charter…”propose recommendations for improved access to the [electrical] grid system by which renewable energy industries can set up and have market access in Nevada and neighboring states.”

    • Phase I Preliminary, reported Dec 2007

    • Phase II Final, report due by July 2009 technical specs in Dec 2008

RETAAC

  • Phase II Participants

    • Federal

      • BLM, DOD, DOE, Fish & Wildlife, Forest Service

    • State

      • DCNR, NDOM, NDOW, NDSL, PUCN

    • NGOs

      • Sierra Club, Wilderness Coalition

    • Commercial

      • Nevada Power, Sierra Pacific, Valley Electric


Retaac9 l.jpg
RETAAC

  • Data sharing issues

    • Mix of formats

      • Spreadsheets

      • Paper maps

      • GIS datasets

    • Incompatible projections

    • Large file sizes (too big for eMail)

    • Concerns for propriety & security

      • NDOW: Game habitats

      • NEVP & SPP: Transformer locations

Summary l.jpg
Summary

  • CartoGraph/Google combination

    • Entirely Web-based, easily accessible

    • Excellent data sharing with security, in CartoGraph

    • Custom map making with security, in CartoGraph

    • Enhanced basemaps and 3D, in Google

  • Desired enhancements

    • Unified permissions/security system, a la CartoGraphamong data, docs, maps, and sites, in Google

    • More stable, faster mapping performance in browsers and on-the-fly data generalization in servers


Future l.jpg
Future

Mackay Geothermal Consortium (MGC)

  • Building on RETAAC but… focused on Nevada geothermal industry

    • Federal & State “framework” datasets

    • GBCGE & NBMG “thematic” datasets

    • Vetted and updated by industry usage

  • Using CartoGraph, optionally Google

  • Funded through grants & subscriptions

  • Organized by Mackay School at UNR
