Once geospatial relevancy is established, the geospatial services and analyses to support the IT business and operational functions can be demonstrated, benchmarked, and documented — specifically how the geospatial initiative can enhance, enable, leverage, and visualize or provide support services for integration initiatives.
Disparate data can be functionally linked through their location on the Earth’s surface. Using this spatial attribute of data can allow for data to be queried, accessed, analyzed, summarized, and visualized with in the context of location.
Specific guidance is lacking, performance must be addressed case-by-case.
Current FEA lumps most geospatial service in one ‘component’:
Approach to extend the SRM specificity to implementable service components
Service components listed in Appendix G
